We are earthy embodied creatures, with a consciousness vast as the skies. Our practice must hold these two poles and the passionate heart that lies between, in order for the Bodhichitta to arise. Much of our spiritual lives is about finding ways to sit with the extraordinary paradoxes of our existence, to learn to live in this complex and chaotic world with vibrancy, stillness and a tender open heart.
This retreat is an invitation to live a simple authentic life, in a silent community with other women on the path to ordination. We will practise with our bodies, our voices and our hearts, as we immerse ourselves in a realm of meditation, myth and ritual.
Led by Maitridevi, Akasaka, Hridayagita, Maitrisiddhi and Samata
Level: For women who have asked for ordination
