The Poetics of Awakening - A Home Retreat with Paramananda and BodhililaOn Wed, 7 December, 2022 - 10:37
Led by Paramananda and Bodhilila | Friday January 20th till Thursday January 26th 2023
What does it mean to really wake up? Join us for an opening of the heart and imagination to our own deepest nature and place in the world.
Seven days of meditation, soulful exploration, and strong, supportive friendship: a safe space to go deeper into experience and practice.
The Buddha was known as the Awakened One, but what does it mean to really wake up? Buddhism is clear that this awakening is more than just intellectual knowledge. Most importantly it is an opening of the heart and imagination to our own deepest nature and our place in the world.
During this online retreat we will be looking at how we might deepen into ourselves and open to the world through our practice of meditation and ritual. 🧘♀️ 🧘♂️
About the retreat
With his deeply grounded approach to Buddhist meditation and practice, Paramananda offers an approach that is a challenge both to the way we experience ourselves, and the way in which we see and ‘be’ in the world.
He guides us in rooting meditative experience in the body, turning towards whatever comes up in a kindly and intelligent way, and seeing through to another way of understanding and being in the world.
During this retreat, Bodhilila will be hosting a ritual space of practice every day live from the beautiful West London Buddhist Centre shrine room.
What to expect
The sessions will be a mix of meditation, poetry, presentation, practice, interaction and inquiry. One session each day will feature breakout groups. There will also be a private community message board for all taking part in the retreat.
