Newsbyte: Suryavana Retreat Centre

By Sadayasihi on Mon, 16 Jul, 2018 - 14:15

Suryavana is the new retreat Centre for the Valencia Buddhist Centre.  One possible translation of Suryavana is rather apt description ‘the sun’s dwelling place’.  The Valencia Buddhist Centre bought a retreat centre of their own to cater for their gradually expanding retreat programme: increasing from three to four retreats a year to approximately twenty to twenty five retreats annually. 

This Newsbyte explores the importance of going on retreat as a means of coming in touch with yourself, the earth and nature - with...

Things are getting exciting for Valencia Buddhist Centre, Spain: they’re buying Triratna’s Spanish sangha’s first-ever retreat centre. Moksananda’s video gives a good impression of its flavour (4-minutes).
