The Yogi's Joy

Starts 4 Jun 2021


A mid winter retreat specifically for Triratna mitras

This 3 day retreat will be based on the teachings of Milarepa, a Tibetan yogi famous for delivering his teachings via poetic song. We will look specifically at 'The Song of Realisation' from 'The Hundred Thousand Songs of Milarepa' and delve into the 'Bhardo's' or stages of dying outlined in 'The Tibetan Book of The Dead' We will reflect, meditate and deepen our understanding of living and dying.

This is an annual mid winter retreat specifically for Triratna mitra's.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to practice away from the usual comforts and distractions of modern day life.
At the peak of our time on this retreat we will spend 24 hours immersed in ritual and myth, practicing around an outdoor fire, building a mandala shrine and sleeping only when we need to, so bring your sleeping bag, lots of warm clothes and a torch.

The secret lies in letting go! - Milarepa
