This retreat is open to all women mitras who have asked for ordination.
What do we mean by lineage in Triratna?
On this retreat we will explore what 'lineage' is in terms of the spiritual life and reflect on our own experience and understanding of lineage. What does it mean in terms of wanting to join the Triratna Buddhist Order?
Studying extracts from Subhuti’s paper, “A Supra-Personal Force” we will look deeper into how lineage is expressed in our own practice and our training for ordination. The team will offer talks on the theme and lead group discussion, meditation and puja.

The price covers the cost of the retreat, including accommodation and all meals. The price does not include dana/donation or support for the retreat leaders, apart from travel expenses, the members of the order who lead do not receive any payments for retreats at Dharmagiri.
The retreat begins with dinner at 18:30. You are welcome to come anytime from 15:00. We wish that you do not plan to arrive later than 18.30. If you still think you might need it, contact us before booking.
We finish in the afternoon at 14:00.
Dharmagiri offers simple but comfortable accommodation. You will share a room with 1-5 other people and we will eat all meals together.
Being on retreat together means taking care of each other. The team leading the retreat are volunteers who are also on the retreat and we will ask you to help with cooking, cleaning and simple chores. Working together is a great way to get to know each other, and it also helps us keep the cost of the retreat to a minimum.
Dharmagiri has one single room that can be allocated to a person with special needs. If you require a single room in order to attend, please contact us prior to booking to ensure availability.
We eat breakfast, lunch and dinner together every day. Many Buddhists eat a vegan diet as an expression of nonviolence. All food at Dharmagiri is therefore vegan. If you have any allergies, it is important that you contact us before booking to ensure we can accommodate your special dietary requirements.
If you are not traveling from another country, we ask you to bring your own bedding (sheets, duvet covers and pillowcases). You also need to bring all the toiletries you need, including towels. For those who have traveled a long way or forgot to bring sheets, these are available to rent against payment. Individual toiletries are also available for sale.
