We are a Buddhist group which provides
teachings & practice in meditation & Buddhism.
We now have our day retreats using the Zoom platform. It is working well, and it feels surprisingly similar to our day retreats at Helios. People can join in with the discussions almost as easily as when we are all together in the same room. With practice, it will get better and better. The advantage is that people can join our day retreats from all over the world, which is amazing.
In our last Day Retreat with Dirk and David Fry, we looked at the topic of ignorance in Buddhism, and how ignorance affects us personally. It was the first time that David Fry took a lead during part of the Day Retreat, and everybody benefited from it. Thanks, David!
Our next day retreat is with Tsering Paldron.
Our entire life, all our efforts are meant to secure, protect and expand our identity, the one who seems to own this body, this consciousness, and this experience.
We are taught by our superiors, in our education, in advertising and in the media how to improve our self, how to hone our achievements and how to expand our self in terms of power, status and possessions.
If we were to realize that this assumed self isn’t really there … would it be scary, or a relief?
There will be ample room for discussion, questions & answers.
Bodhicharya London is under the guidance of Ringu Tulku. We have been doing stimulating monthly day retreats at the Helios Centre for some time now. Some meditation sessions will be guided.
We do a number of meditation sessions interspersed with the discussions and breaks for lunch, tea and biscuits. By the end of the day, we will have done about three hours of meditation in total. Beginners are very welcome.
The day retreat will be very much like our day retreats at Helios, but we will use the “Zoom” platform. We will have a talk, discussions and meditation sessions. We will also have tea breaks and lunch break. Let’s see how this turns out! We already doing something like this for the Thursday evening group. Please join us!
