“your life is your life.
know it while you have it.
you are marvelous
the gods wait to delight
in you.”

From ’The Laughing Heart’ by Charles Bukowski

Often life seems to be passing by without us actually being present to our experience.
The Buddhist path is all about waking up to the present moment, waking up from our mental constructions, illusions and misinterpretations.
This retreat offers an opportunity to join with other women to support each other on the path moving towards Awakening.
We will be exploring ways to create conditions in our lives that lead to more happiness, love and compassion.
We will also go into ways to discourage conditions that lead to more darkness, pain and delusion.
The retreat takes place in the magical realm of Rivendell retreat centre in East Sussex.

This retreat is open to women who are regular visitors to WLBC, are interested in Buddhism and know the meditations taught at the Centre. Please contact the Centre if you’re unsure whether this retreat is suitable for you.
