By Centre Team on Fri, 3 Jul, 2020 - 15:27

What is it to be fully aware, fully alive? Here is a great conversation with the retreat team from Taraloka, who are about to lead our online Home Retreat around the relief and ease of being in the present moment – whatever that present moment looks like. 

Join in with Alive, Aware, Awake - a Home Retreat for everyone!

Experience can be an adventure in awareness. How can we taste the deep excitement of opening to the nature...

Welcome - Meditating in the Mandala home retreat

By Sadayasihi on Fri, 12 Jun, 2020 - 10:40

What is a mandala? Symbolically, it’s a sacred circle that, if you enter and approach its centre, brings you towards Enlightenment or full Awakening. This week, during our latest home retreat, we will be meditating in the mandala, led by Tejananda, an Order member with over 25 years of teaching practice, as we deepen into our experience and learn to simply be.

Tejananda’s approach is rooted in Triratna’s System of Practice - integration, positive emotion, spiritual death, spiritual rebirth...

Meditating in the Mandala (The Dharma Toolkit, Episode 29)

By Centre Team on Sat, 6 Jun, 2020 - 21:06

To mark our latest Home Retreat, led by Tejananda, an excellent conversation and primer on meditation from a body-focussed perspective. 

Tejananda’s key image is of the dynamic mandala. Dharma practice is itself dynamic and transformative. And the transformation lies in gradually discovering how both we and the world are not at all what we originally supposed! Seeing this, we can begin to uproot the causes of suffering in our own experience.

This approach to practice is centred on the living energy of...

Transference of Merit and Self Surrender- Turning Arrows into Flowers: Day 7

By kusaladevi on Thu, 21 May, 2020 - 15:40

Coming to the end of the ‘Transforming Arrows into Flowers’ Home retreat, it is always useful to dwell on any benefits you have received from the week. Perhaps you would like to make a few changes to your life – such as less time checking your emails; or ‘doing nothing’ for ten minutes each day. You may wish to write these down and keep them by your bed or on your fridge as a reminder. Telling other people can also...
