On this retreat we will be arousing the heart of wisdom and compassion through the practice of Tonglen. This is a simple and effective way to cultivate love and compassion towards ourselves and others amidst the challenges of everyday life. The retreat is an introduction to the 7-point mind training. This profound teaching integrates mindfulness, reflection, sadhana and the qualities of the four brahma viharas into a comprehensive approach for awakening the Bodhicitta. The retreat will include puja and ritual with supportive silence and meditation reviews. Open to members of the Triratna Buddhist Order only.
