Dhamma reflections & vipassana
Combining reflections on classical Pali discourses with the practice of mindful awareness, questioning and collectedness, this retreat will seek to uncover what lies at the heart of the Buddha’s teaching and ask how such ideas might be interpreted and put into practice in today’s increasingly secular and interdependent world.
