Autumn Yatra Retreat - Peddars Way

Dates: 
Friday 13th Sep 2019 to Friday 20th Sep 2019

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.

Come and join us as we walk the ancient route of the Peddar’s Way taking inspiration for our rituals and meditations from poetry and the beauty of nature.

We will also be drawing experiential wisdom from Sangharakshita's book ‘Wisdom Beyond Words’ (which he wrote at Castle Acre on Peddars Way).

A Yatra is a spiritual journey or pilgimage. 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."

Connecting with each other as a journeying Sangha and with the sacred landscape we will walk in silent meditation from the Forest to the Sea.

We will walk at a gentle pace with plenty of breaks, when we can talk , share poetry or reflections if we so wish.

Each evening we will pitch camp at a new place by the Peddars Way and enjoy a nourishing and 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 along the way.

Full info on what to bring will be emailed two weeks before the retreat. For any further information do feel free to email suryamanilayton@gmail.com.

Please bring all camping and walking gear.
