Advanced Retreats

Meditation day and half-day courses, retreats, and special events are a wonderful opportunity to take some time out of your busy week, relax and dive deeper into teachings and benefits of meditation and mindful living. In general they run at the weekends, are open to everyone and include guided meditations, talks, a vegetarian lunch when it is a whole day event and plenty of time to chat and relax.

Guru Yoga & Mandala Retreat
1 - 3 December 2017,  Introduction Friday 1 December at 7.15pm
Nyungnay Purifying Practice | 15 - 16 December 2017

This is a special fasting and purification practice that is performed in conjunction with Eleven-faced Buddha Avalokiteshvara.  It is a very powerful method for purifying our negative karma of body, speech, and mind, and for pacifying our strong delusions (or negative states of mind) such as desirous attachment and hatred.  It is also a special way for receiving blessings and improving our experience of love, compassion, and the supreme mind of bodhichitta.

Everybody is welcome to this retreat.  There is no pre-required knowledge or experience in order to engage in this retreat.  Whether you are a Buddhist or not, beginner or a more advanced practitioner.
