Listen back to the wide ranging talks from Sangha Night 2020.
On this retreat Tejananda, a teacher at Vajraloka Retreat Centre, leads us into a somatic approach to the five principles, that is, one based in the living energy of our body and being. Through being open to the energy of the body, and by becoming attuned to it’s actual nature we’ll discover ways to “integrate” all five principles experientially into a single, embodied ’non-practice’ of Simply Being.
Joy in the Cremation Ground | Sangha Week Retreat 2020
This retreat invited us to share the practice of enlivening the Sangha jewel, allowing its solace and joy to soak into our bones and hearts. We did this through meditation, a daily talk from Bhadra, bodywork, groups and evening rituals.
Explore the theme of awakening the heart.
Pathways to the Beautiful Mind | Rains Retreat 2019

A couple of talks from the ‘Big Sangha Retreat’ in 2019. This is an annual retreat where members of the Bristol Sangha take a long weekend at the Adhisthana Retreat Centre in Herefordshire.
