“Mind training” covers the whole path of Buddhism. It gives us guidance how to awaken our limitless potential of wisdom and compassion. The instructions shared during the retreat can improve our quality of life. We cannot change the external world to fit in with our expectations but we can awaken an enlightened attitude whereby we see things in a different and more useful light. The retreat will be “experience-based” using the meditation instructions like tong len to illuminate the teachings given. Many of us may have come across parts of this teaching but this is a golden opportunity to go deeper and begin to understand the whole text.

It requires diligence, self-discipline and also great courage to develop our full potential as human beings. There will be a day of silence and five silent mornings during the retreat.

Especially useful to those who have already done a weekend course with Clive.

There is no fee for this course although donations are welcome. Your offering will help with the Monastery's considerable running costs, as well as the expenses incurred in inviting teachers.  Donations may be made in the Reception Office.
