This retreat is suitable for those new to meditation and Buddhism as practised within the Triratna Buddhist Community.
To take part online at this weekend costs £60 to book, plus a recommended donation of £30-50 (this donation can be paid at the booking checkout).
1. That the automated booking confirmation that you will receive will contain information that relates to a residential retreat, so please ignore that. It would cost money that we don't currently have to change our systems to reflect the circumstances of these special online events.
2. You will receive a joining email from us close to the start of each event (ideally the day before), with a Zoom link that will work for the whole of that particular retreat online event.
3. Zoom is a simple online communications platform that is very easy to use. If you have not used it before, we suggest that you download this programme and install for free before your retreat is due to take place. You can find the programme at this link: https://zoom.us/download. If you have any questions about using Zoom, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Each day of the retreat has a structured programme during which you will be gently guided in the practice of two traditional Buddhist meditations: the Mindfulness of Breathing, which helps develop a calm and focused mind, and the Metta Bhavana (development of loving kindness), a practice which encourages emotional positivity. When practised regularly these two meditations can have a transformative effect on our whole lives. There will also be talks and discussion groups.
Rivendell is a Buddhist retreat centre. However, you don't have to consider yourself a Buddhist to benefit from these retreats. They are a chance for you to get a taste of meditation and Buddhism and to make up your own mind.
The online schedule will follow as soon as possible.
Prices for this event are: £60
