Being true to your heart isn’t just about doing what you want. It’s listening closely to what is truly kind, truly ethical, truly freeing. It’s also listening to our heart’s calling and living our lives in line with our deepest values.

Bodhilila and Maitripushpa will use these lines from the Chinese Buddhist monk Zhiyi (538-97CE) to explore what this means for each of us – and start putting it into practice.

Do not cheat the Buddha
Do not betray your heart
Do not deceive living beings

The retreat will include meditation, talks, reflection, discussion groups, mantra chanting and ritual. It will start with a session from 7-8.30pm on Friday night and then the following three days will keep to the same schedule with sessions at 8-9am, 10.30am-12.30pm and 4-5.30pm.
