Everything is alive --
shells, buildings, people, fish,
mountains, trees, wood is alive.
Water is alive.
Everything has its own life.
Everything lives inside us.
Live with the world inside you.
From ‘Hokusai says’ by Roger Keyes
On this Living Nature retreat we will embody the elements through walking, sitting, listening, noticing and experiencing the elemental nature of life.
We will do this in the company of spiritual friends, in the spirit of kalyana mitrata (friendship with the beautiful) and nourished by the rustic beauty of Sudarshanaloka, our land of beautiful vision.
There will be periods of silence, reflection, meditation, ritual and sharing.
We may well be walking over varying terrain on narrow forest tracks, sitting and lying in deep forest glades, circumambulating the stupa, traversing rocky river landscapes and visiting sacred trees. Please consider this when booking and bring appropriate footwear and clothing. A small day pack, drink bottle, raincoat etc will also be needed.
Suitable for those who are familiar with our Triratna meditation practices.
Please note the dates for this retreat have changed to 23-26 October
