The Way of Poetry - Creative Writing & Dharma

This retreat is suitable for those who have a regular meditation practice and who regularly attend retreats, a centre or a group within the context of the Triratna Buddhist Community. You will also need to be familiar with, and happy to participate in, Triratna Buddhist devotional practice and ritual (puja), be comfortable with extended periods of sitting meditation and the possibility on some retreats of periods spent in silence.

“…with an eye made quiet by the power of harmony, and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things“ – WILLIAM WORDSWORTH

On this retreat, we’ll build our writing skills on a solid foundation of Dharma practice, so that the two can fully support each other, both on the retreat and beyond it. There will be a talk by Subhadassi to set the context of the retreat, and, alongside shrine room practice, the main content of the weekend will consist of structured writing workshops. This retreat is suitable for people with all levels of creative writing experience, from ‘beginner’ onwards.

Subhadassi is an experienced teacher and retreat leader. For fifteen years he worked as a freelance writer/artist and workshop leader. He is currently chair at Brighton Buddhist Centre. More details are at:
