- Can I come if I’m new or if I’m not a Buddhist?
Yes! All of our courses are open to all, and newcomers are very welcome. There will be people with a range of experience on this course, including people who have been practicing Buddhism or meditation for many years, as well as many people who are completely new. We find that having a wide range of experiences gives the best opportunity for exploring the themes of the course.
- Do I have to attend the whole day?
Ideally, everyone taking part will attend the whole day in order to keep a sense of momentum and a closed space for practice. If you need to leave early please try to do so in one of the breaks so as not to disturb the meditations.
- What if I can’t afford to come?
This day retreat is open to all, with a suggested or recommended donation. We do this so that anyone experiencing serious financial difficulties can book on without giving any donation at all if they cannot afford to do so.
Obviously our events do require money to run, so we rely on the generous donations from those that can afford to pay full cost, in order to subsidise those who cannot afford to do so. This is in accordance with the Buddhist principle of open-handed generosity. We are pleased to say that in the many years we have run events in this way, most people decide to give, and those that are unable to do so are very appreciative of the opportunity to attend our courses.
