This is an experiential meditation course that focuses on developing compassion, both for oneself and for others.
Both beginners and those who wish to deepen this practice are welcome to attend.
On each day we will practice together as a group as well as having space for you to practice independently.
During the retreat we will also touch into a variety of themes such as: Refuge – where is my place of safety?, Wholesome livelihood – what is an ethical life?, connecting into one’s heart-felt aspiration - what is it that is really important in my life?. Questions arising spontaneously from those attending will also be explored. As a way of supporting participants to deeply benefit from being on the retreat there will be periods of silence built into the course.
The Chenrezig practice this is a Tibetan Buddhist practice that embodies the union of wisdom and compassion. It is an exploration of rich symbolic imagery and sound that enables us to connect deeply with these two qualities of wisdom and compassion within ourselves and therefore in others.
