Description:A Yatra is a Buddhist-inspired walking retreat; a mindful and devotional celebration of our land and our mutual interconnectedness with it and one another.
Come and join us as we walk the ancient route of the Peddar’s Way taking inspiration for our rituals and meditations from Sangharakshita's ‘ Wisdom Beyond Words’, poetry and the beauty of nature.

Yatra

The Buddha's followers were 'Yatrikas', or wanderers and so we will be evoking the way of life of the very earliest Buddhists - but " upon England's green and pleasant land."

Connecting with each other as a journeying Sangha and with the sacred landscape we will walk in silent meditation from the Forest to the Sea; beginning in Thetford Forest and finishing in Holme-next-the-Sea.

We will walk at a gentle pace with plenty of breaks, when we can talk , share poetry or reflections if we so wish.

In the evenings we will pitch camp and enjoy a tasty meal together prepared by our great Sherpa Team. We will have sitting meditations in the evenings and mornings and also puja and other rituals at various times.

To get the full Yatra, you are encouraged to come for the full week. However there is the option to come just for the Thetford Forest Yatra.
