In Triratna, Dharma practice is embodied in a dynamic mandala of five principles. We progressively integrate mind and body and discover the power of skilful and positive mental states. Then, directly investigating, penetrating and dispelling our various layers of delusion, we open ever more to the wonder of what is - the essential Dharma-truth of our being. Finally, we can rest in simple openness, embodied wholeness.
We're all already engaging with these principles in different ways and to different degrees. In this retreat, we'll explore their dynamic and transformational nature, how our meditation and other practices might change as we go deeper and how, as the Buddha promised, dukkha may come to an end and wisdom and compassion may be fully embodied.
Tejananda writes: 'I’d like to approach this in a thoroughly embodied way, building up an integrated practice which brings all five principles together'.
This retreat will be practice-led, based in the direct experience of the living energy of our body and being. Embodiment means realising our undivided wholeness, our natural positivity and our intrinsic capacity to see Dharma truth directly - all through being open to the energy of the body, and by becoming attuned to its actual nature.
