19 – 22 Jan
A renewed Buddhism needs to confront the modern world as it is. It needs to be a radical alternative to an individualistic consumer society. It needs teachings that help to overcome hatred and prejudice. It needs people living and working together to reduce suffering, tackle loneliness and give meaning to people’s lives. Essentially this means deepening our own practice, connecting with others and building Sangha.
Over three days there will be interactive workshops exploring right livelihood, meditation teaching, ‘sangha-building’ and how to establish Buddhist projects (ie. groups, businesses, communities etc). We’ll also look at themes like the path of responsibility, the place of ordination, withdrawal vs engagement, and the Sangharavastus. This long-weekend is a perfect opportunity to get to know other young(er) people like you who are inspired by the dharma, are practicing in Triratna and feel eager to contribute to ‘building the Buddhaland’.
To book on this retreat you need to be a Mitra within the Triratna community and aged 18-34.
