Mixed Order and Training for Ordination Day

Sun 14th Jul : 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Tapestry with Buddhist figures

Going for Refuge Groups and Chapters: The Archetypal Crucibles of Transformation

An opportunity for Order Members and Mitras who have asked to join the Triratna Buddhist Order to gather together and deepen our connection and practice. Local preceptors Lokeshvara, Sthirajyoti and Taravandana lead the day. They say:

To keep our practice alive and inspired it helps to understand what Chapters and Going for Refuge groups are, or can be, ideally. During the day, Lokeshvara will take us through three conceptions of what these contexts can offer. We’ll also be exploring how important it is to recognise that the vitality of these groups will likely diminish over time, and what we can do about this when it happens. We’ll meditate together, hear some input and discuss the area together too. We hope to see you there!
