Description:This Cambridge men's retreat will be at Hridayabija, the East Devon Forest Garden, a new retreat venue where we can practice close to nature.
Accommodation is camping in two yurts and individual tents, and possibly some in two caravans. Our theme will be an introduction to the four foundations of mindfulness, as outlined by the Buddha in the Satipatthana Sutta. There will be some study, led meditations and ample time for meditation practice and reflection.

Retreatants need:

> to allow at least 5 hours from Cambridgeshire to the retreat centre in East Devon
> to let us know if you can bring your own tent
> a warm sleeping bag

The Satipatthana Sutta taught by the Buddha is one the source texts for the Buddha's teachings on mindfulness, the four foundations for progressively developing awareness of the body, feelings, mind and all objects-of-mind, mundane and transcendental. On this retreat we will begin to explore the sutta's content - the Buddha's direct, simple and profound instructions on mindfulness.

Open to all men who attend the Cambridge Centre who have at least one year's experience of meditation as practised in the Triratna Community. If unsure, please contact Priyananda on
