How to Make a Life

25 – 31 May 2014

All you’ll need to know to get started! Talks, meditation, small group activity, interviews, body work.

To prepare yourself for this retreat you are invited to view the How to do Everyday Buddhism section of

Beginners welcome, as well as old hands. Please note this is a silent retreat.

The retreat is offered freely as the organisers intend to fundraise in advance to cover all costs (we anticipate these will be about £150 per person). Donations will be invited at the end of the retreat and these will be used to fund retreats in the future. This gives retreatants the opportunity to practice generosity by making it possible for future retreats to also be offered freely.

Teachers do not receive a fee for leading retreats, whilst giving enormously of their time and energy. Dharma teachings are considered priceless and therefore teachers offer their understanding freely. The livelihood of most Insight Meditation teachers depends wholly, or to a large extent, on voluntary contributions from retreatants who value their guidance and wish to support the ongoing teachings of the Dharma. Your generosity to the teacher is greatly appreciated, and at the end of each retreat there will be an opportunity to offer them a donation.
