Milarepa Day Retreat with Manjuvajra

Milarepa was a Tibetan poet who lived in the wild mountains and devoted his life to meditation. Many people are inspired by this ideal - but is it relevant for us?

Milarepa taught various practices that were relevant to many people following different lifestyles - to lay people, monastics and other yogis - while at the same time encouraging them to follow a higher inspiration.

We will reflect on a series of songs that he sang to these different types of people, looking to see what we can learn from him in our own lives.

Manjuvajra was ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order in 1974 and currently spends half of each year meditating in the Spanish mountains and the other half touring around the UK visiting Buddhist Centres and living on his narrow boat.

Suitable for anyone who has completed one of our Introduction to Buddhism and Meditation courses.

Please bring vegan food to share for lunch.

Suggested donation of £25 but please come and donate what you can.
