Day Retreats and Residential Retreats
Breaking out of the Prison of Samsara - Residential Sangha Weekend
Friday 24 March 2023 – Sunday 26 March
On this retreat Taravandana, Mahasraddha and Shakyapada will lead us in exploring one of the most popular accounts of the Buddhist spiritual path - The Bodhicarayavatara, or way of the Bodhisattva, written in the early eighth century by Santideva. It takes as its subject the profound desire to become a Buddha and save all beings from suffering. The person who enacts such a desire is a Bodhisattva, and Santideva not only sets out the proctice of a Bodisattva but he also evokes the intense feelings of aspiration of one who is intent on following this path.

Are you interested in a Dream Workshop?
Monday 1 January 2024
Arthabhandhu has been in touch with us offering to run a day workshop on dreams at YBC. He has been doing this workshop at different centres for a couple of years and they have been going down well. The workshop is complementary to Triratna’s approach to Dharma practice and particularly helpful for helping people connect with myth and imagination in their practice. The workshop is also accessible to all levels of experience and to total newcomers.
Date to be decided depending on level of interest
