Guidance for Bodhisattvas: Women's TFO Weekend Retreat

Date:Friday 12th January 2018 to Sunday 14th January 2018
Time:Fri 6pm - Sun 3pm
Cost:£155.00 / £95.00 Conc.
Led by:Viryajyoti, Padmajata and Amritavani
Description:A women's training for Ordination weekend retreat at The Old Stable House, Newmarket. Looking at Sangharakshita's seminar 'The Precepts of the Guru'.
In 1980, Bhante Sangharakshita gave a seminar at Padmaloka, the fourth in a series, entitled The Precepts of the Gurus: study based on a chapter entitled The supreme Path, The Rosary of Precious Gems , found in A Buddhist Bible, edited by Dwight Goddard.

During the weekend we will tap into this rich material, and explore its relevance to us, as aspiring, budding, Bodhisattvas.

We will study, reflect, meditate, do ritual, and of course, importantly, just be with each other, living in community together for the weekend, supporting each other to deepen our Going for Refuge: a precious opportunity to forge new friendships and to deepen existing ones.

Do you need a lift? Can you offer lifts? Use this page to help you to arrange lifts with others, post a sticky note of your details for others to contact you and to read notes left by others. Double click to add a note. Keep checking back for new notes.

We can offer a limited number of assisted places if your financial circumstances prevent you from going on the retreat. Please contact us allowing a few weeks before the retreat.

Important: the diet is vegetarian/vegan, and the recipes are planned and the food is bought in advance. If you have a food allergy or medical condition requiring a special diet, please email us the details on receipt of your booking confirmation. Its best also to check with the organizer when you arrive.

If you need to arrive slightly late or leave before the end, please consult with the retreat leader now.

Lost property: if you leave something behind, it is important that you talk with the Buddhist Centre first and not the retreat venue.

Retreats are a special event where people enjoy coming together and support one another to practice the Dharma. While every care will be given to all those attending, the Cambridge Buddhist Centre cannot be responsible for the loss of personal possessions, nor look after you appropriately if you fail to disclose important information about your health. If in doubt please consult us now.
