Event Title: Spiritual Receptivity

Led by Vessantara

Vessantara continues his exploration of our mandala of spiritual practice with a second, deeper look at Spiritual Receptivity. This one will focus on Just Sitting, in which we’re open to the whole of our experience. Just Sitting forms a vital balance to structured practice, and is also the centre of the meditative mandala, where everything culminates in an experience which Sangharakshita describes as ‘existential relaxation’.

In this 9-day retreat we’ll explore ways into the practice, how to avoid possible pitfalls, and how to set up the conditions for this radical relaxation and simplicity of true Just Sitting.

This retreat is for members of the Triratna Buddhist Order
