The Great Gathering

A chance to meet in great numbers, as the Buddha recommended for a thriving sangha, and to celebrate the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha together. 

**This will be held at Taraloka, with a team from Taraloka, Tiratanaloka and Buddhafield. Please book on the Taraloka website**

Going for Refuge

"As a committed Buddhist one goes for Refuge - or tries to - all the time. As one's appreciation of the Three Jewels grows, one's Going for Refuge becomes correspondingly more profound. And this can sometimes have surprising results."  Sangharakshita has said that the act of Going for Refuge is what makes one a Buddhist. What does this actually mean? And what are the possible results of this act for us?

The Mythic Context

"When our life is inspired by a mythic dimension, we are working out on the historical plane something that is of archetypal significance. And the bodhicitta, one could say, is the myth that inspires the Buddhist spiritual community." This retreat will be looking at the mythic dimension, our need for spiritual receptivity, and how we can develop this, especially in relation to the Refuge Tree. This will be supported by the Going for Refuge and Prostration practice, pujas and meditation.
