Sunday 30th June 10:00am - 4:30pm.
We are delighted to announce that Satyaraja, a long standing member of the Men's Ordination Team at Padmaloka, our Men's Retreat Centre, will be coming to Colchester on Sunday 30th June to lead a day for men.
The theme of the day will be meditation and is open to all men with experience of our two meditation practices (Mindfulness of Breathing and the Mettā Bhāvanā). The day will be particularly suited to those with a regular meditation practice.
* All of our day events run a “bring and share” style lunch, so please bring food to share. All food brought into the centre must be vegetarian, but as many of those attending will be vegan, we suggest vegan only food.
The day will be suitable to all men who are familiar with the two meditations taught at the centre.
We can never have enough of the basics: things like salad, bread, hummus, crisps and fruit always go down well.
No - just turn up!
Of course! Many people who come for half the day will come just for the morning, leaving at lunch time, or the other way around. But you're welcome to come for whatever parts of the day you can make - just try to turn up at one of the times on the programme so we're not in the middle of an activity.
A pūjā is a traditional Buddhist ritual that includes chanting and making offerings.
It is probable that there will be several people who have never done pūjā before so we will be sure to give an introduction.
All of our events are run on a donation basis. There is no set charge, we just ask you to give what you can to support the day. The suggested amount for this event is £12.
