Developing the heart of a Buddha, 29 Apr - 3 May
This retreat is open to anyone who has participated in one of the Triratna basic / introductory courses.
This retreat is an opportunity to come together as a temporary community to explore what it means to develop the warmth, kindness and the embodied wisdom of the Buddha. Being alive to the heart helps us feel more resilient, alive to ourselves and sensitive to others, helping us see what truly matters to live authentically. The retreat will weave together meditation, simple ritual, silence, reflection, time for walks in the beautiful setting of Dharmagiri and fun.
The retreat is lead by Jayaraja who has been teaching meditation and mindfulness for over 25 years. He has a diploma in Gestalt psychotherapy and trained with Marshall Rosenberg in Nonviolent Communication. He is the co-author of two books on play and community building and two books on communication for teenagers. He has trained in Restorative Circles and has studied neuroscience, developmental psychology and trauma. He has also workded with fundraising for Karuna Trust and has been the chairman of Buddhafield. He is known for his playfulness, warmth and depth.
