    Description

    ‘Citta’ is perhaps the single most important reference point in Buddhist practice; it is that which is subject to ignorance and has the potential for liberation. Although the word is often translated as ‘mind’, in practice ‘mind’ falls short of the scope and the intimacy of ‘citta’. Although ‘heart’ is another useful option, this doesn’t cover citta’s full potential for samādhi, wisdom and release. 

    In this online retreat, we’ll explore some ways in which the term is used in the context of the Pali Canon, as well as practices for revealing and clearing citta through meditation and inquiry. 

    At present we do not have any further details regarding the format of this retreat however we are hoping that we are able to adopt a format to suit multiple time zones.

    As soon as we have more details we will release those via our Newsletter and update this page.

    Time will include regular meditation periods, talks and dialogues. There will be some opportunities to talk to each other at the beginning and end of the retreat. Although we will be meeting online, we will cultivate a sense of community and shared purpose during the retreat.

    We hope that this retreat will be a creative way to respond to the current situation and that it will support us all in this time.
