“In fact we may say that the creative mind at its highest level is freedom itself…” Sangharakshita

On this retreat we will begin to get a sense of what the creative mind truly is. Creative mind is not about being an artist or having any special ‘talent’. It’s about finding freedom from the mechanical and habitual nature of the reactive mind, about questioning and moving beyond the usual. The process begins with the simple application of awareness.

His story is our story - a talk for Buddha Day

The following is the text of an introductory talk given at the commencement of the Walk in the Footsteps of the Buddha retreat incorporating the Buddha Day Festival at Vijayaloka Retreat centre.

U35's National Retreat - "Higher Ground"

By Bodhidasa on Tue, 5 May, 2015 - 04:24

Buddhism has at its core the goal of freedom. Many of us would like to be more authentically ourselves, but the ideal of complete freedom can bring with it a sense of fear: fear of the unknown, of our own unknown potential, standing out from the crowd or challenging the status quo.

On this retreat we will work together to lighten these fears and explore new possibilities. We will delve into meditation practices that help unearth our hidden strengths.

Come and spend time in...

People gave to the Blitz in many different ways. We raised a magnificent $33,467.80 - and we gained much more!

So we’re expressing our appreciation to the Sangha, not only for any monetary contribution people may have made, but also for the time, energy, skills, expertise, suggestions and goodwill that poured forth so readily right from...
