“A common misapprehension is to think of Insight and egolessness in abstract, even metaphysical terms rather than as comprising concretely-lived attitudes and behaviour. But realising the truth of egolessness simply means being truly and deeply unselfish. To contemplate the principle of egolessness as some special principle that is somehow separate from our actual behaviour will leave it as far away as ever. If we find it difficult to realise the ultimate emptiness of the self, the solution is to try to be a little less selfish. The understanding comes after the experience, not before.” Sangharakshita, ‘Living with Kindness’
This retreat is one of our best loved retreats where we look deeply into the limitless nature of the ten ethical precepts. We will look at how we can apply them to our lives and see what their implications are for us. We also learn the subtleties of confession and rejoicing, and how to be in a relationship of complete honesty and openness to others. We are released from our burdens, and live closer to the way things are.
