We are a Buddhist group which provides
teachings & practice in meditation & Buddhism.
Using the Zoom platform 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. The advantage is that people can join our day retreats from all over the world!
This last month, Dr Steve Todd presented an authoritative Day Retreat on Quantum Mechanics and Buddhism. His thorough, well presented presentation was enjoyed and appreciated by everybody. He devoted some of his time debunking false assumptions about the Dharma and Quantum Mechanics and his presentation was interspersed with meditative reflections. It was wonderful, thanks Steve!
Tsering Paldron has become a familiar friend and respected teacher here at Bodhicharya London and other Bodhicharya centres in the UK, now. We are very happy she can present the next day retreat for us.
This last year presented a lot of challenges. Going through lockdown after lockdown, whether alone at home and confronted with our thoughts, or in a 24/7 intimate coexistence – we have been put to test in unusual situations.
Amidst all this, how can we remain wholesome and healthy? How can we make use of this unprecedented opportunity?
Staying alone with our thoughts, with fewer distractions and interactions, has shown us the need to develop our meditation, whereas being in a 24/7 relationship calls for a lot of growth in understanding. We will explore both and much more.
There will be ample room for meditation and discussion.
About London’s Day Retreats
We have been doing stimulating monthly Day Retreats at the Helios Centre for many years. Since the pandemic, we have been conducting them online, where there have been well attended.
We have a main topic for the day and often invite guest speakers, who give talks and have open discussion groups. We have a number of meditation sessions interspersed with the discussions and breaks for lunch, tea and biscuits. Some meditation sessions will be guided. Beginners are very welcome.
The day retreat will be very much like our day retreats at Helios, but we will use the “Zoom” platform.
