Mula Yoga Order Retreat
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.
Nayaka came to Dhanakosa in 1996 after learning to meditate with the Newcastle Buddhist Centre. Drawn by the mountains, he quickly felt at home here and became increasingly involved in the running of the centre. He became part of the management team in 1999, was ordained into the Western Buddhist Order in 2001 and became Centre Director in 2006. He has a background in earth and life sciences, a long standing interest in natural history and a love of the wilderness. He lives at Dhanakosa with Dharmavasini and their 2 children.
Open to members of the Triratna Buddhist Order only.
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.
This retreat is for members of the Triratna Buddhist Order. For more information read the retreat information sheet.
