Men's ordination training retreat

Starts 31 Oct 2020

Triratna Buddhist Community

This retreat is by invitation only and led by a team of senior members of the Triratna Buddhist Order for men who are training for ordination.

Such retreats are held three times a year at the moment. Two 'national' more local retreats around Sept/Oct/Nov at both Vijayaloka in Australia and Sudarshanaloka in New Zealand. And a combined retreat each Jan/Feb which rotates between the two venues.

If you are a GFR mitra visiting the area and would like to attend this retreat, please ask one of your local order members for an Order contact in this region. The order member organising these retreats can change from retreat to retreat, but once we know you are interested we can direct you to them. We enjoy having visiting GFR mitras on these retreats, but space is limited and we need to give priority to men training for ordination and living in the region sometimes.

There are similar ordination training retreats held in Australia and New Zealand by a team of senior women order members also.


Start: 31 Oct 2020 at 6:00pm
Finish: 8 Nov 2020 at 12:00pm

Cost: to be confirmed directly with those attending this retreat
