GUIDED REFUGE  RETREAT

The foundation of the Buddhist way of life is to go for refuge to Buddha, to guide us along the spiritual path to enlightenment; to Dharma (Buddha’s teachings), the opponent to delusions, the source of all our suffering; and to Sangha (those practising Buddha’s teachings) to inspire us, show a good example and to help us along the path to inner peace.

RETREAT
The purpose of this retreat is to deepen our experience of refuge.
A retreat is a time when we reduce our normal worldly activities and concentrate for a period of time on developing spiritual qualities and peaceful minds.
