Reflection and Contemplation in the City

A non-residential retreat leading into our Parinirvana Day Festival. How can we keep the thread of reflection and contemplation alive in our spiritual lives in the midst of the busy modern world? No charge, but please let us know that you’re coming, by phone, by email or by booking a free ticket online if available below

Collective Practice

We encourage you to attend the whole retreat and also to stay with one another if you can, to strengthen our sense of collective practice. Please let us know at info@manchesterbuddhistcentre.org.uk if you can host another retreatant or would like to stay with one, and also if you’ll be making your own arrangements to do this.

Programme

Thursday evening gives an opportunity to practise together in the home of another retreatant. You could eat together, meditate, perform a Dedication Ceremony and quieten down in preparation for the coming days.
