Event description
Day retreat in the insight meditation tradition led by River Wolton

About this Event

Our world can seem full of division, conflict and challenge; this is sometimes reflected in our inner worlds too. This day of meditation and reflection on the ‘extra day’ of the leap year, will offer a chance to create space, press the pause button, and turn towards the complexity and beauty of our human experience, with the quiet support of community. How do we meet difficulty? How do we support the conditions for greater compassion and wisdom in ourselves and in our worlds? Suitable for newcomers to meditation and those with more experience.

About River

River Wolton is a co-founder of Sheffield Insight Meditation and a Community Dharma Leader authorised by Gaia House Teacher Council. A writer and community arts facilitator, she is currently a student on the Bodhi College Teacher Training Programme.

About Tickets

Fees

We charge a retreat fee to cover costs of venues, teachers’ expenses, ongoing administrative costs and maintaining a Retreatant Support Fund. We offer a standard, supported, and sponsor rate. A freely given rate is also available so that no-one is excluded.

Booking

We request that people book places for themselves. If you are booking for yourself and someone else you must make a separate booking for each person, with an email address for each

Dana

Dana can be translated as cultivating generosity or giving. The teachers who lead our retreats receive their travel costs and ‘out-of-pocket’ expenses but do not receive any payment for their teaching. However they are happy to receive voluntary contributions from participants in the events they lead. These offerings are traditionally called dana. Most of our teachers depend on dana for most or all of their livelihood.

Our teachers are following an ancient tradition, offering teachings freely just as they received them freely from a previous generation of teachers. In this way the dharma (the teachings of the Buddhist tradition) is not made an object of commerce, and the relationship between teacher and student is based upon trust, freedom, and mutual generosity.

If you attend one of our events and appreciate what the teacher has offered, we warmly invite you to make whatever contribution you feel appropriate. If you do so, you will be making a vital contribution to their livelihood and helping them to continue teaching on this generous basis, particularly in situations where people cannot afford to pay anything.
