The Greening of the Heart

At the lovely Eastdown Centre in Devon.

As we move towards the darkest time of the year what does it mean for our hearts to green, our imagination to redden and to gaze into the blue distance.

Colours are one of the imaginations expressions of depth and feeling across many cultures and traditions.

Through guided meditation, ritual, myth & yoga we shall explore the significance of colour in Buddhism & alchemy and how this resonates in our own lives.

Open to mitras & dharmacharinis. Booking is now closed.

Triratna Day. 3 Talks from a delightful day of celebration and gratitude: Triratna locally, internationally and mythically

  1. Satyalila details the amazing history of the generosity of so many people that created the local institution of the Bristol Buddhist Centre

2. Manjuvajra describes the pioneering spirit of the early days of Triratna. The willpower and naivety that established the unique international presence of our Triratna institutions

3. Bhadra looks at the myth of Avalokitesvara that sustains the Triratna institutions. The dynamic between form and emptiness that protects them and the spirit of purposeless play that Sangharakshita encouraged.
