Sadhana Convention

Sadhana is a rich, deep and multi-faceted form of meditation practice, which can help us contact and deepen the qualities of all the 6 Perfections. There are many ways of approaching it, suitable for different types of practitioners and levels of experience. Once we make it our own, it can become a cutting edge of our practice, and a source of guidance and support for life.

For this first ever Sadhana Convention we’re inviting all of you who practise sadhana, or would like to revive your practice, to a gathering of the sadhana clans – an opportunity to meet with other Order members to share experiences, learnings, difficulties and enthusiasms, questions and inspirations.

We’ll have opportunities to practise our own sadhanas, and to participate in kula groups with others who do the same practice. We’ll also be able to experience being led in some of the major sadhanas we practise in the Order by people with decades of experience. To feed into this rich mixture, Vessantara will give a series of talks exploring the principles and practicalities of sadhana and yidam practice. Also, an experienced team will be on hand to discuss any aspects of sadhana you want to explore, from mantra to Madhyamaka.

We aim to make this an event that will give you fresh inspiration, understanding and insights to take into your sadhana practice, as well as making or strengthening your links with other people who practise the same sadhana or sadhanas.
