Parami

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.

Currently she lives at Adhistana in Herefordshire and the rest of the time visits Triratna Centres in the UK and elsewhere. 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.

Mula Yoga Order Retreat

Tuesday, 25 May 2021 to Friday, 4 June 2021 2021

This retreat is based on conversations that Parami held with Sangharakshita over a few months in 2015 and 2016. We will be doing the practices as revised in those conversations. Sangharakshita suggested that any retreats on these practices would not be purely meditation retreats but be held within a context of appropriate study and devotion.

Active Hope for Humanity

Friday, 23 April 2021 to Friday, 30 April 2021 2021

Seeing the dangers confronting humankind these days, we can feel depressed, demoralised and helpless to avert disaster - or even to talk about such feelings. This retreat provides a space not only to talk but to explore an extraordinary sequence of reflections and communal practices that can rekindle an active hope and vision for humanity.

facing the demons - dharma for troubled times

Friday, 26 April 2019 to Friday, 3 May 2019 2019

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.
