Liberty, Nietzsche and Buddhism | Philosophy Symposium

10 – 12 may | led by Dhivan, Ketumati + Abhayadhara

The annual Philosophy Symposium at Adhisthana is an opportunity to hear talks on philosophical themes and for lively and open discussion, in an atmosphere of critical thinking and respect for different points of view.

This year’s Symposium will explore the thought of Friedrich Nietzsche in relation to the political ideal of liberty in the context of Buddhist practice.

Reception is from 4pm on the day of arrival, with the retreat beginning with supper at 6pm.

While you’re here you will be participating in communal life. This includes meditating with everyone on site in the main shrine room in the morning, taking part in daily tasks and at the end of your retreat you will help us to prepare the retreat centre for the next group to join us.

With this in mind, the retreat will finish after the clear-up, so if travelling on public transport, please book a train after 3pm.

The deposit for all our events is non-refundable and non-transferable under all circumstances. For this event, the deposit is £50.
