Day Retreat: Living in the Divine Abodes

Day Retreat: Living in the Divine Abodes

Saturday 27 August 10am – 4pm

Can you imagine how wonderful life would be if we were not constantly blown around by the ups and downs of life. On this Day Retreat Shakyapada will explore, through teaching, discussion and meditation, the Buddhist practices of love, compassion, joy and equanimity. Four sublime states of mind that help us meet the world with calmness, peace and positive states of mind.

Saturday 27th August from 10.00 am until 4.00pm at York Buddhist Centre 17 Walmgate

Meeting the Conquerors Sangha Retreat

Meeting the Conquerors Sangha Retreat

Friday 9 September – Sunday 11 September

The Conquerors are four mythical Buddhas who arose some time after the Buddha's passing as a means of keeping the qualities of Shakyamuni alive in the world. They are not real but, mysteriously, not quite unreal either. Four of them represent a specific quality of the historical Buddha which we might like to cultivate. The fifth is a mythical representation of all the Buddha's qualities. During this weekend we will be learning about them, meditating on them and exploring how they can help us to transform our lives.

This is our regular Autumn residential sangha retreat at the Beamsley Project at the edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. Beginning with dinner at 6pm on Friday 9th September and ending at 3.00pm on Sunday 11th September. All food and bedding provided.
