Event Title: Sikkha Meditation Mentoring Retreat (Online)

Led by Vidyamala, Tejananda, Vessantara, Jnanavaca, Vijayamala, Dhammarati and Vajrashura

Continuing on from the success of our 2019 retreat, this meditation mentoring retreat aims to help Order Members deepen our experience, skills and insights in the area of meditation and meditation teaching.

Our goal on the retreat will be to equip you with new understandings and tools to help you take your meditation practice deeper, teach meditation more creatively, and become more effective as a meditation mentor.

We will be exploring the Three Myths of the Spiritual Life – Self-Development, Self-Surrender and Self-Discovery – which outlines different approaches to meditation and the Dharma life found in Buddhist tradition.

Understanding these myths deeply can give us a helpful framework for:
• Understanding our own practice more deeply
• Seeing the advantages and disadvantages of any one
particular approach
• Building bridges between different approaches
• Learning how to teach people who are drawn to one or
another of them

There will be practical sessions to explore effective ways to teach meditation, with opportunities for further discussion and practice in small groups.

You’re very welcome to join us if you are (or would like to be) teaching or communicating meditation in a Triratna context and within the context of the Triratna System of Practice.
For a taste of what this retreat will be like, do have a look at the videos of the teaching on the 2019 retreat.

This retreat is for members of the Triratna Buddhist Order
