A day of meditation, discussion and friendship. Anyone aged 18-30 is welcome to attend this full-day retreat of Buddhist practice and meditation at the Buddhist Centre.

Entering the Greater Mandala

A mandala is a beautiful diagram, a circle of symbolic forms where what is most true and most meaningful is placed at the centre. Around that centre, we then arrange aspects of that truth and meaning.

We can imagine our own life as a mandala, where what is most important to us is at the centre, with everything else arranged around it. To do this, we need to look honestly at what is motivating and preoccupying us, what brings us joy, satisfaction and what makes us curious. From this place of honesty, we can then explore what a more ‘ideal’ mandala of our life would look like.

Living within this ‘ideal’ mandala also means that we can relax into simply being alive, enjoying the gift of life, rather than having to justify ourselves through endless activity.

Join us for a day of exploring this territory through short talks, discussion, meditation and hanging out.
