facing the demons - dharma for troubled times

In his 1979 talk on Padmasambhava, Sangharakshita said "we mustn't think of 'demons' as mythological.... You're living in a world of demons": economic; social; political. In our troubled, complex world it is hard to recognise and face these 'demons'.  This retreat will explore some of the demons of our age and time, both inner and outer. Through meditation, ritual, talks and group work we hope to face and transform them, going forward with renewed energy, strength and inspiration.
