Four Sanghas Weekend Retreat: The Heart Of Wisdom
This retreat is ONLY for people who regularly attend Chester, West Wales, Llangollen and Shrewsbury Triratna Sanghas.
Go deeper; transform your mind; make connections! Spend a weekend meditating, turning our minds to Buddhist teachings in a beautiful environment, and building friendships with others who share our values.
Buddhism, one way or another, is all about releasing our tight limiting grip, including our grasping to views and concepts, and opening into greater freedom. The “Heart Sutra”, which we recite in the sevenfold puja, can sound mysterious and baffling, but in a sense its message simply helping us to release that grip, and learn to flow with life within a more spacious vision.
On this weekend retreat, we will begin exploring this profound text from the Perfection of Wisdom literature. With talks, discussion, meditation and ritual we can let its message begin to soften up our hard-edged grip on life, and maybe taste some of the freedom that it expresses.
This is an unusual event for Taraloka - it's open to all genders, and as a Sangha weekend, a lower rate of £40 non-refundable deposit is required to book a place. After the deposit, this event is run on a donations basis like other Taraloka retreats.
