Safeguarding, bullying, harassment and inappropriate behavior
We want all of the people who visit us to feel valued and safe.
If you feel that you have been subject to inappropriate behaviour or harassment or bullying behaviour by any member of Land of Joy team (including teachers) while on our premises and wish to take the matter further please contact our safeguarding officer, Jenny MacQueen, in the first instance. She will respond to establish details and ensure that the matter is sympathetically and fully investigated and appropriately dealt with.
Thanks to the kindness of so many teachers, we are incredibly fortunate to have many precious resources to help us in our dharma practice. We’re hoping to use this page to highlight some that people who wish to do retreat might find particularly useful.
Lung is something most people who have been around the Dharma are likely to have heard of or experienced but not necessarily know much about. These are two documents which do a great job explaining what it is, how it can be avoided or helped if it does occur.
Planning a personal retreat for the first time can be a very daunting process, particularly if we’re not able to meet our teachers to receive direct advice. The Foundation for Developing the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) have published the following documents to share invaluable advice on how to plan and set up a retreat as well as how to make it as beneficial as possible.
