Dependent Origination Retreat – Online

No events to show


The teaching of dependent origination is referred to as being the landscape of the Buddha’s awakening. Passionate about understanding both the architecture of distress and the architecture of liberation, his genius lay in providing a detailed map of the ways in which our world of experience is created on a moment to moment level that is accessible to us experientially, offering the key to our freedom. In this silent retreat there will be some extended periods of teaching and group investigation that can then be cultivated experientially in our sitting and walking practices.

This event is run in collaboration with the Swiss retreat centre Beatenberg
