About the Retreat
We spend all our time and energy trying to avoid problems by making changes to our external world. However, our unhappiness and difficulties are not caused by the external world but are the result of the negative karma we have created in the past through our own harmful actions.
In this special meditation practice, by relying on Vajrasattva, the Buddha of Purification, we have a great opportunity to purify our mind of this accumulated negativity which gives rise to suffering, and obstructs our spiritual progress.
Then we can experience the peace and happiness of a clear, pure mind and swiftly make progress on our spiritual journey.
The retreat will start with an introduction on the Friday evening, explaining who is Vajrasattva, why we need to purify, and how to engage in the practice.
This will be followed by four retreat sessions on Saturday, each including a short talk, prayers, guided meditation and mantra recitation
You are welcome to attend the whole retreat, or as few or many sessions as you wish.
