2015 weekend retreats

13-15 March 2015 led by Jinananda and Bodhilila

Retreat at Othona in Essex

From Friday at 7pm to Sunday 3pm

Weekend retreat 13-15 March led by Jinananda and Bodhilila
Our next weekend retreat is at  Othona retreat centre by Bradwell-by -Sea in Essex. A retreat is a great opportunity to get away from the routines and stress of your everyday life, to meditate in supportive conditions and to make or deepen connections with others. The retreat starts on Friday evening and ends on Sunday afternoon. There will be lots of opportunities for meditating together and we will also be exploring  the Buddha’s teaching to Bahiya – ‘In the seen only the seen, in the heard only the heard, in the cognised, only the cognised etc….’ This retreat is open to anyone who knows the Mindfulness of Breathing and Metta Bhavana meditation practices.
Othona is 5 minutes away from the sea, so you can go for walks and enjoy the wide open horizon, or if you prefer just walk in the surrounding countryside. Vegetarian food will be provided by the Othona community.
