retiros de verão - hopefully!

Estou já a programar o meu Verão :)

Starts Saturday 15th
Ends Saturday 22nd July

Course Code 5175
Course Fee £210 (£175)

The aim of this retreat is to integrate the practice of meditation with the ideas and doctrines that support and illuminate such practice. As the week unfolds, Stephen’s morning seminars will offer a broad perspective on Buddhist teaching by means of critical interpretation of classical texts. Buddhist ideas will also be contrasted and compared with other religious, philosophical, literary and scientific insights. Martine’s evening talks will focus on the practical application of these ideas in meditation practice and daily life. Participants are expected to have experience in Buddhist meditation and familiarity with Buddhist ideas. Apart from talks and discussion periods, the retreat will be conducted in silence.
