Mitras and Order Members Retreat: Breathing Easy

Date:Friday 13th April 2018 to Sunday 15th April 2018
Time:5pm Fri - 3pm Sun
Cost:£155.00 / £95.00 Conc.
Led by:Vessantara
Description:A weekend for mitras and Order members at Vajrasana, led by Vessantara.
Meditation on breathing is used in many different ways in the Buddhist tradition: for relaxing deeply, focusing the mind, healing the body, becoming sensitive to energy, opening the heart, and developing insight into how things are. During this weekend, we shall use the breath to explore some of these areas and help us become more alive, open and in touch with our experience.

The retreat will include presentations from Vessantara, guided meditations and some devotional practice, as well as time to enjoy being with the Sangha in Vajrasana.

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.
