This is a mainly silent retreat with participants leading themselves through their own Lam Rim meditations while Ven Mary will guide one meditation in the morning and offer a Q&A / Shamata type meditation in the evening.
It’s suitable for those with a general understanding of Lam Rim topics, offering a wonderful opportunity to deepen your meditational experience. The beautiful gompa and grounds will enhance both sitting and walking meditation.
To fully benefit, please bring meditational resources, books etc, to aid your self-led meditation or browse Land of Joy’s onsite library. You may also wish to do some reading or perhaps write your own glance meditations before arrival for use during the retreat.
There will also be an opportunity to take 24 hour 8 Mahayana Precepts during the week.
