Mandala of the Heart with Paramananda & BodhililaOn Mon, 19 July, 2021 - 16:00
This online retreat runs from Sunday 25 July at 7pm and runs till Sunday 31 July at 5.30pm
Mandalas are cross cultural symbols of the relationship between the macrocosm and the microcosm of the human psyche. Helping us to understand, on the deepest level, our place in the universe. Within Buddhism they are used as an aid to meditation and contemplation.
On this retreat we will be imagining our own bodies as a mandala with our hearts as the central organising principle around which we can gather and strengthen our awareness through placing unconditional love as the touch stone of our experience.
Through meditation and ritual we will see what it might mean to place our own hearts at the very centre of our practice, by exploring the traditional idea of the heart as seat of both wisdom and compassion.
