Creative Weekend 5-7 December 2014
With our hands, we manifest our relationship to the world and to ourselves; with our feet as well, though differently.
During this weekend, we will explore how our hands and feet are serving us to open to what we are sensing and feeling and how to find our ground and creative responses.
Underlying this exploration is the inner ‘knowing’, our real ground.
We will offer devotional pujas and ways of exploring and reflecting on the theme individually and in the group. This will include periods of silent meditation (sitting, walking, moving, painting) to strengthen present moment awareness. In addition, the contemplation of Buddhist teachings will help us to develop a perspective on the flow of sense impressions.
We ask all participants to follow the 5 Precepts and take refuge in the Triple Gem. Part of the weekend will be held in silence.
The Creative Weekend is under the umbrella of the Family Events held at Amaravati. This particular retreat is open to anyone who is over 18. You are requested to participate for the duration of the weekend.
There is no charge for attending retreats at Amaravati. However, to meet the running costs of the retreat centre, we do rely on the generosity of those attending. Previous retreatants will have made a donation, enabling others to attend.
As a guideline: The costs for running the centre are approx. £ 20 per person/day. Any donations are anonymous and entirely voluntary, retreatants are invited to give whatever they are able to offer.
The retreatants are asked to bring food/dishes for a shared lunch on Saturday and Sunday (pot luck) and to help with some meal preparations.
The Retreat starts between 5 and 6:30pm on Friday (with a light meal) and ends around 4 pm on Sunday.
