Autumn Weekend Yatra: Devils Dyke and Icknield Way
Come and join us as we walk part of several ancient trackways; the Icknield Way, the Stour Valley Path and the incredible earthwork of Devils Dyke. With camping at Little Ditton on Jenny Bailey's land
We shall be taking inspiration for our rituals and meditations from the realm of Padmasambhava and the beauty of nature at this time of the Autumn Equinox.
A Yatra is a Buddhist-inspired walking retreat; a mindful and devotional celebration of our land and our mutual interconnectedness with it and one another. The Buddha's followers were 'Yatrikas', or wanderers and so we will be evoking the way of life of the very earliest Buddhists - but " upon England's green and pleasant land."
We will walk at a gentle pace with plenty of breaks, when we can talk , share poetry or reflections if we so wish. In the evenings we will pitch camp and enjoy a tasty meal together prepared by our great Sherpa Team.
We will have sitting meditations in the evenings and mornings and also puja and other rituals at various times.
To get the full Yatra experience, you are encouraged to come for the full weekend. However there is the option to come just for one or both days.
