About the Retreat
This practical meditative retreat will provide new perspectives on the way that we cause harm to ourselves and others through acting out of misguided, exaggerated and fantasised ideas about human nature, existence, events and physical things.
We will experience how our habitual, conditioned mind and senses deceive us, drawing us into unwise attachments, aversions and unskilful actions that can only come back to haunt us in the future.
Based upon a contemporary text by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, drawing on Buddhist wisdom and techniques refined in Tibetan monasteries for more than a thousand years, this retreat will include practical exercises and offer clear ways for you to assess your growth and personal development.
Realising your true nature depends on having the courage to develop self-knowledge by following the steps presented, discussed and meditated upon in a contemporary manner while following a traditional sequence. These methods of love and insight working together like two wings of a bird, will enable you investigate and transform your attitudes, develop positive qualities and strive to realise enlightenment for the benefit of all sentient beings.
