Fri, 10 Mar, 2017 - 14:26

‘Akshobya means immovable, what does not shake, what does not tremble.
He represents the openness, the non-centrality of the Enlightenment experience: its toughness and solidness, its indestructibility, its firmness, its strength, its immovability, its unshakeability.’

- THE UNSHAKEABLE -

21st - 28th April

A 7-day retreat exploring the unshakeable archetypal Buddha Akshobya, through ritual, talks, discussion, meditation and friendship.
Led by a team of young Order members and open to all men aged 18 - 35.
