This years work retreat is well underway. The program has been worked on over the years and the current one seems to work very well. We work four mornings followed by a silent practice day and then an unstructured day. The evenings are put aside for study and puja and we have mediations in the mornings before breakfast and in the afternoon before supper. This year Vajrasiddhi and his son Chris have been working in the forest felling trees. Some of the guys have been painting and working on El Morer and the solitaries. The rest of us have been working our way down the track to clear the undergrowth and reduce some of the risk the retreat centre would face if there was a fire. Next week we will be joined by a group of men from the LBC.
