This retreat will guide us through a series of meditations that deeply transform our view of ourself and our world around us. The retreat will help us to develop a sense of purpose and joy as well as helping us to develop a special perspective on life that enables us to let go of stress and deeply relax.

We will be exploring a series of meditations called ‘Lamrim’ or Stages of the Path to Enlightenment. These meditations contain all of Buddha’s teachings but are presented in a way that are very relevant to modern living and easy to put into practice in our busy daily lives.

Everyone is welcome to attend a day or two – or even just a session if that’s all you can manage. The retreat will be suitable for beginners as well as those who wish to deepen their experience.

The weekend will be followed by a further 3 days of retreat sessions which are optional – Monday-Wednesday – same times as weekend.

Attend the whole retreat, a day, half a day or just a session.

Teaching and meditations on the practice of Purification

Heart Jewel – 5-6pm (optional unguided session)

In this guided retreat, we will explore how we can actively let go of the past by engaging in special meditation practices that purify our mind. Our actions of the past affect our present experiences. So often we find ourselves trapped in unhelpful habits and guilt and find it difficult to move on from the past and really change. By practising purification we can begin to create the life that we really want and discover our limitless potential for peace. 

On this course and retreat we will be engaging in the practice of purification in conjunction with the practice of Vajrasattva. In this special practice, we will learn how by visualising living Buddha Vajrasattva and by applying 4 special methods, we can let go of the heavy burden of negative karma we have accumulated over many lifetimes and find true peace and freedom within.

Saturday 10.30am-1pm will provide a teaching on purification practice in conjunction with Vajrasattva and can be attended as a stand alone class if you wish.

 

Each day will include opportunities to relax in the breaks and enjoy delicious refreshments, lunch or enjoy a walk along the beach.

Attend a day or the whole weekend, or just a session, and enjoy being taken on a journey to discover the power and beauty of your own mind.

Accommodation options are available, please e-mail the centre for details. Attend the whole retreat, a day, half a day or just a session.
