At last, we are pleased to say that we have re-opened for residential retreats. First, a large women’s ordination training retreat, led by the team from Tiratanaloka, and now the Men’s Private Preceptors. Both retreats have been making the most of the gorgeous warm weather, with many eating and having groups outside. The Preceptors retreat is even meditating outdoors!
We are delighted to hear from retreatants that our coronavirus measure are working well, and that they feel safe. They also said it only took a little adjusting to slip into the routines. You can read our full coronavirus guidelines here.
One retreatant even came up to thank the team at the end and confessed their expectation prior to coming that the retreat would be ‘second-rate’ because of the various measures, but they had in fact had a very significant retreat, unhampered by the precautions in place.
Below are a few images of people back enjoying the grounds, meeting together and being in the sunshine.
