As Pingiya said: "with constant and careful vigilance it is possible to see [Gautama] with my mind as clearly as with my eyes …” This week will be an opportunity to deepen our connection with the Buddha Shakyamuni through visualisation, evocation and contemplation.

During the retreat there will be a full introduction to the visualisation of Shakyamuni that Bhante gave to the Order. The retreat is suitable for any Order member who wants to spend time in the Buddha’s presence: reflecting, revering and sharing. It will also be an opportunity for Shakyamuni practitioners to come together.

The retreat will be mainly in silence, with periods of teaching, guided meditations and devotional practice, along with some reflections on the words of the Buddha.

The retreat will start with dinner at 18:00 and you are welcome to arrive on site after 16:00, it will end at 10:30 on the last day.

For long events (4 nights or more) you can pay either the £78 non-refundable deposit or the full amount.

This retreat is for members of the Triratna Buddhist Order
