Event description

Description

"Just as the mighty ocean has one taste, the taste of salt, so the Buddha's teaching and way of life has one taste, the taste of freedom." - The Buddha

Spend a weekend letting go into that flavour of liberation at Othona retreat centre on the shore of the mighty, salty ocean in Essex. There’ll be a simple programme of meditation, talks, study/discussion groups and devotional practice, with plenty of time to do nothing, go for walks or hang out together.

Going on retreat is one of the most powerful of Buddhist practices – taking time and space, surrounded by nature, to let go of the pressures of daily life and allow the mind naturally to relax and open. Othona is a comfortable but simple, ecologically sensitive retreat centre about two hours drive from WLBC – a beautiful, peaceful just a few metres from the beach, amid salt marshes, woods and wildflower meadows.

The weekend is a chance to come back to ourselves and reconnect with what’s most important in our life; a chance also to connect with others, finding mutual support and friendship as we live together in harmonious community. In conditions like these, even just a few days can have a strong and surprisingly lasting effect. All welcome.

There is a small and strictly limited number of low-cost bursary places available for those who cannot afford the retreat fee. Please contact the Centre if you wish to apply.
