Event description

Description

You don’t have to justify your existence by being useful…

We spend so much life striving to achieve some goal or other. And that’s important. But too much of it, especially if it becomes habitual, can exhaust us and close us off to the beauty and meaning that’s inherent in life if we can be receptive to it.

That easeful, joyful receptivity is what this retreat is about. It offers a weekend of relaxation and contemplation to help us cultivate spaciousness and creativity of mind. Along with meditation, and the poetry and colourfulness of devotional practice, there’ll be picnics on the lawn, cloud watching – and plenty of time to do nothing at all.

The retreat will be held at Kench Hill retreat centre, an elegant, homely Georgian mansion set amongst beautiful gardens in Kent countryside. All welcome, including beginners to meditation and Buddhism and those new to retreats.

…Here, Perfect Wisdom is going to come very softly, very gently, very unobtrusively.
(from Wisdom Beyond Words by Sangharakshita)
