wolf at the door
Regulars - Triratna
These retreats are for people who are currently practising within the context of the Triratna Buddhist Community. Previous experience of the Mindfulness of Breathing and Metta Bhavana meditations and of the Sevenfold Puja will be assumed.
A Wolf at the Door Buddhist writing retreat, exploring the imagination through pen, paper – and the spaces in between.
For both aspiring writers and Buddhists, tuning in to our experience through the body and senses can open us to a fresh direct and authentic way of looking at the world, beyond labels. It can allow us to move from a literal way of translating the world, to something closer to metaphor, and closer to reality. On this retreat, we will explore this theme through exercises and space to play and experiment, with an emphasis on experience and embodied observation through the senses.
Wolf at the Door writing retreats are fully immersive, intense workshops, woven with the Dharma and laced with the unexpected. No writing experience necessary, just a willingness to step through the door of the imagination in the company of experienced Wolf guides.
Suitable for Triratna Regulars, Mitras or Order Members with at least a year's experience of Triratna and a knowledge of the three main meditation practices and devotional ritual (puja).
