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.
Parami - Parami has been a member of the Triratna Buddhist Order since 1980. In that time she has led retreats and workshops in many parts of the world. Her particular interest in the Bodhisattva Ideal has shown itself in many ways, most recently in her exploration of socially engaged Buddhism, on retreat and in training with Joanna Macy.

She is involved with Triratna activities around the world, especially in Spanish-speaking Centres. She has been a private preceptor for some years and became a public preceptor in 2005.
