We’ve come to the end of this home retreat, “Turning Arrows into Flowers”. Find the Post retreat resources here

However you have used the resources this week, we really hope that Training your Mind and having a sense of community online have benefited your Dharma practice at this time. Let us know here how you have found the week, we’d love to hear from you.

Please give now, so that we can offer home retreats and other resources to more people like you in the future.

To all of you at The Buddhist Centre Online, please accept this gift of £1,000 from Adhisthana. It’s just a small token of our appreciation of all that your team is doing right now in these extraordinary times. You’ve managed to respond very quickly to the Covid19 situation, creating online resources for the Triratna community and whoever else may be looking for a sense of meaning and support during this phase.


You’ve also given our worldwide community a chance to meet collectively: listening to your podcasts, watching your live events, etc. I have certainly felt I was participating in something much larger than just my personal lockdown space. So, thank you! I’m also aware that it takes a lot of time to create these connections and resources, and I feel very appreciative of the time-pressure and the extra effort it is demanding of you all.

Here at Adhisthana, there are thirteen of us in ‘lockdown’ and we’re doing what we can to use this time effectively. We anticipate a loss of income of at least 75% this year, so most of our reserves will be depleted. But against that backdrop we really wanted to give our support to all the work of the team at The Buddhist Centre Online – doing what’s needed in a way that the Team at Adhisthana is not able to do.

You could give regularly, or a one off gift, to help us to keep bringing the Dharma to more people in their homes at this time.

Of course, we understand that some people are unable to give, especially at this uncertain time. We want to still be able to offer our resources freely and ask those who can to support us to continue this.

Thank you! 🙏🏻

Our next home retreat, The Dynamic Mandala, will begin on June 12th. Keep an eye on the Home Retreat section on the Dharma Toolkit
