Brixton Weekend Retreat Online – Uncovering Our Depths

January 15 @ 7:00 pm - January 17 @ 4:00 pm GMT

Begin 2021 by taking a step into depth by joining this weekend meditation retreat run by the Brixton Buddhist Community.

This online retreat is a wonderful opportunity to explore and deepen our meditation practice in the context of our lives at home, uncovering the hidden depths within ourselves and offering a glimpse into what the Buddha taught about being ‘Awake’ through transforming our hearts and minds.

At home retreats can be surprisingly effective and enriching. To support our retreat, on this weekend there will be periods of collective meditation, workshops and talks along with group discussions and buddhist ritual. We will also be providing an online ‘retreat lounge’ where you can share and connect with others on the retreat outside of programmed activities.

This retreat is open all, and is suitable for newcomers, as well as those experienced with the mindfulness of breathing and metta bhavana meditation practices.

Led by Maitrinita and Amaladana

FAQ

Can I still join if I can’t attend all the sessions?
Yes, if you have commitments that cannot be changed, you are still welcome to join us for as much as you are able to.

Of course, the more sessions you can attend the more you will be able to enter into the depths of the retreat. So we would encourage you to attend as much as possible. If you can make space over the weekend, you may find it helpful to decide in advance that you will attend all the sessions.

Is it really possible to do a retreat online?
Although it seems unlikely, online retreats can be surprisingly deep and significant experiences. The simple act of being in the virtual presence of others when meditating or reflecting on our lives leads to a far richer experience than simply watching a video or listening to a recorded meditation.

Making a few simple changes for the weekend can also really help, such as creating a quiet space for meditation, letting those we live with know we will be on retreat, and avoiding any unnecessary engagements. This few simple things can make a huge difference to your experience of doing a retreat at home, and give you the space for your deeper experiences to unfold.

How do I join the sessions/retreat lounge?
Once you have booked we will send you an email containing all the links you need to participate in the retreat.
