Tiratanaloka is 20!

By Munisha on Sat, 13 Dec, 2014 - 18:44Tiratanaloka is Triratna’s UK retreat centre for women training for ordination. It’s 20 years since its foundation in a country house in a beautiful valley in the Brecon Beacons, south Wales.

Winter Retreat 2014

By Singhamanas on Tue, 28 Oct, 2014 - 14:02Experiencing the World of Enlightenment: human life is so often driven by consuming what we want, avoiding what we don’t like, and doing our best to ignore the rest. If this is all that motivates us, our world will never be satisfying. How can we live in a better one? Changing our mind changes the world, and the teachings of the Buddha lead to a deepening of our lives. This retreat will explore freedom from our mundane consciousness and help...

Tonglen Retreat: Thursday

By Saddhanandi on Wed, 26 Mar, 2014 - 18:30It’s hard to believe it’s the last full day of the retreat and that we’ll be coming out of silence very soon. It’s now a process of holding the retreat steady whilst we begin to meet the transition phase of ‘leaving’. Meanwhile, I’m trying to work out what I need to say at 11am.

I’ve been reflecting on an extract from one of Sangharakshita’s seminars: ‘A common misapprehension is to think of ‘Insight’ in abstract terms, but the ‘Truth...

Tonglen Retreat: Monday

By Saddhanandi on Mon, 24 Mar, 2014 - 08:55A bright hard frost this morning, after a clear starry night. The wind has dropped and it’s absolutely still.

At 11am, I’ll be presenting Tonglen in relation to ‘self’. I’ve been remembering a period of time when I was quite new to meditation, and how I had to face certain uncomfortable truths about myself: five hard years of going on retreat acknowledging what was really happening! But the work that I did on myself during those years has become...

Amaragita On The Buddhafield Family Friendly Retreat

By Candradasa on Thu, 11 Jul, 2013 - 14:42
A really great conversation with Amaragita, one of the pioneers of Buddhafield retreats that are family friendly, a radical re-imagining of community retreat that has been one of Buddhafield’s most successful projects for 14 years.

How do you maintain a deep practice of the Dharma when you have a family? How can householders bring the Buddha’s teachings to bear on their lives and also feed their own experience into the wider sangha?

A fascinating look at aspects of...
