The Taste of Freedom

The Taste of Freedom

Sunday 15 November 10am – 4pm

In the Udana we hear these words of the Buddha: 
“The Mighty ocean has one taste, the taste of salt. Just so the Dharma has one taste, the taste of freedom”  
On this day retreat together we will be exploring: 

  • What the Buddha meant by freedom
  • And what spiritual freedom might look and feel like for us in our lives.

We will be doing this through: 

  • Meditation and reflection
  • A talk Introducing the Taste of Freedom Sutta
  • Sharing our thoughts and ideas with each other
  • A short ritual

The Day Retreat will be held via Zoom (details below) and everyone who has attended one of our Newcomers' Courses is welcome
