Brighton Buddhist Centre has begun their 2014 Rainy Season Retreat, continuing through Saturday, 22 Mar, 2014 - and we can enjoy it along with them! Some spectacularly fun updates are being made every day from the retreat, including audio, video, photos and blog entries summarizing the day’s events. You can + follow along with the retreat on Brighton Buddhist Centre’s space on The Buddhist Centre Online.

This special retreat for Order members and Mitras this year explores the topic of ‘Going Beyond Self’ through myth, mystery, Bodhicitta, the arts, puja, tales from the Jatakas, and of course space and support for deepening practice.
