Weekend Retreat: Love Every Leaf

21-23 September

How can a stronger connection with nature help to bring our practice of metta more alive? Explore this theme with Shantisthana and Maitrisara through discussion, meditative exercises, simple outdoor ritual, periods of silence and meditation.

In the words of Japanese poet Issa:

In the cherry blossom’s shade

there is no such thing

as a stranger.

Anybody’s Barn is set in woodland in the hills near Malvern and makes a wonderful venue for this retreat. Open to those who have attended an introductory course (or equivalent).

To book please email Khemadana at info@birminghambuddhistcentre.org.uk and pay the deposit £40. The total cost is £100 (£65 low income rate).
