Mind Manifesting: Men's Intensive Retreat at Vajrasana

Description:A special men's intensive weekend at beautiful Vajrasana.
Thousand armed Avalokitesvara is the symbol of the Sangha par excellence; responding to the world with whatever is needed. The myth of the Triratna Buddhist Order is to be the hands of Avalokitesvara extending towards the world, each with its own contribution; both individual and united. At Avalokitesvara's heart is the wish fulfilling gem; the Bodhicitta, a symbol of the mind transformed for good.

On this intensive meditation retreat we will be looking at how the important work of transforming the mind - becoming more integrated and positive, whilst at first may appear an individual or psychological affair, it involves the transformation of our lives and sooner or later leads to the discovery of the part we must play in creating a new world.

Retreats are a special event where people enjoy coming together and support one another to practice the Dharma.
