Adhisthana Retreats

Event Title: Bodhicitta + Mind Training

Led by Saddhaloka, Saddhanandi + Vajranatha

The Mind Training teachings coming from Atisha and his disciples go to the heart of the Buddhist tradition. They use pithy slogans such as ’Bring every difficulty to the Path‘ (single quotations – couldn’t get them the right way) to encourage a wholehearted and unwavering commitment to the Dharma, whatever one's circumstances and whatever life throws up.   Our 'reactions' to life (people, emails, responsibilities, media) serve as indicators of self-clinging and again and again offer opportunities for transformation. To make possible this process of transformation we are urged to enter into the deepest Wisdom and to arouse an unbounded Love and Compassion, yet the Mind Training teachings have about them a lightness of touch, a gentle warmth and humour.
 
We will be exploring these teachings through presentations, discussion, meditation (including daily Bodhicitta practice), reflection, readings and devotional practice.
