As the days lengthen and the sap begins to rise in the trees, we will be looking at the seedlings in our own practice. We will be incubating the seeds of faith, loving kindness and Insight, trusting that we have everything we need for them to grow and flourish.

WLBC’s annual Order member/mitra retreat is a great opportunity for experienced, committed members of the WLBC sangha to practise together, and to develop friendships that can continue to grow long after the retreat, deepening sangha at the WLBC as well as enriching our own lives. It’s a valuable chance to create connections with people we may not often see because they go to the Centre at different times from ourselves. We can often go much deeper in our own practice alongside others who share our commitment to the Dharma, and the strength of the collective sangha we create is an essential basis for making the Dharma available to others.

Please note: This retreat is open to mitras and Order members only.

There is a small and strictly limited number of low-cost bursary places available for those who cannot afford the retreat fee. Please contact the Centre if you wish to apply.
