going deeper - walking and nature awareness
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.
By going deeper with walking and nature awareness we are giving ourselves the opportunity to experience life away from the trappings of our everyday routine and to relax into the freedom and spontaneity of our basic relationship with natural world around us. We will weave together Buddhist teachings, meditation practice, and an appreciative and playful investigation of the natural world around us to create an experience of depth and connection.
We will continue exploring the Mindfulness of Breathing and Metta Bhavana and also introduce a stronger Just Sitting element to the practice, and more reflection, both on and off the cushion. The retreat will also include an introduction to Buddhist ritual and the seven fold puja. There will be longer periods of silence together and quiet walks will all support a deep and rich experience both of ourselves and the world around us.
