Weekend Retreat at Rivendell

Friday 12 August 2022 from 6:00 pm to Sunday 14 August 2022 from 6:00 pm

Moving wisely through the world

Weekend retreat at Rivendell With Dyotana and team

As a bee gathering nectar
does not harm or disturb
the colour or fragrance of the flower
so do the wise move
through the world.

The principle of non-harm is central to the Buddha’s teaching. However, when we try to apply this to our lives, it may not always be obvious how best to put this into practice. We may find that sometimes the best we can aim for is to cause the least harm.

During the course of the weekend, we’ll explore how non-harm underpins Buddhist ethics, and the relationship between ethics, meditation and developing wisdom. The retreat will include short talks, discussion, meditation, and some ritual elements, as well as time to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Rivendell.

The weekend is open to all who are familiar with the Mindfulness of Breathing and Metta Bhavana meditations as taught within Triratna, whether you’re just starting to explore the Buddha’s teaching or have been practicing for some years.

Please note the following before booking:

Rivendell is housed in an old Victorian rectory which unfortunately can create access issues for some people. There is one shared bedroom on the ground floor. Please check with us on the email below if you’d like further clarification on accessibility.

Most accommodation is in shared rooms and allocated on a single sex basis. You will receive an email shortly after booking which, amongst other things, will ask you to let us know if you require a male, female or ungendered room.

For legal reasons we are unable to accept bookings for people under the age of 18.

Retreatants are asked to contribute to the running of the retreat through assisting with tasks such as food preparation, serving meals or washing up.

For any enquiries about this retreat, please email: info@brightonbuddhistcentre.co.uk
