Going Deeper retreats are an ideal first regulars retreat. They are suitable for anyone who has already done an introductory retreat or, who has been attending their local Triratna centre and wants to take things deeper. Going Deeper – with Hillwalking takes the established successful Hillwalking retreat format and by intensifying the practice enables us to connect more deeply with our experience both in the shrine room and in nature. We will continue exploring the Mindfullness of Breathing and Metta Bhavana but also introduce a stronger Just Sitting element to the practice, and more reflection, both on and off the cushion. These retreats will also include an introduction to Buddhist ritual and the seven fold puja. Longer periods and silence and silent walks will all support a deep and rich experience both of ourselves and the world around us.

The retreat will include three days of guided walks. There will be walk options available to suit all levels of fitness. All walks are in the local area but some require a short drive to get to the starting point. You can of course also go on your own walks and our walk leaders will be able to advise you. Please note, appropriate clothing is essential for many of the guided walks – see “Is there anything special I need to bring?”
