Friday 29 October – Sunday 31 October at Vijayaloka Retreat Centre in Minto Heights
Every month new people come on retreat at Vijayaloka to take their practice of meditation and the Dharma deeper in ideal conditions with like-minded people. Keeping the centre running and looking beautiful depends on the generosity of many people, not only financially, but practically - running and supporting retreats, performing administration work, buying supplies, and of course the practical maintenance of the retreat centre.
On our Working with Nature weekends we have an opportunity to give back by coming together for a weekend to do the work and maintenance needed to keep Vijayaloka looking beautiful and suitable for our holding retreats. The work normally involves both working on the buildings and in the surrounding bushland. Many people who enjoy coming to Vijayaloka find participating in these weekends a great way to give back in a meaningful and practical way and we have found that they are enjoyable and productive for newcomers as well as old hands.
In addition to the maintenance work, the weekend will include some gentle study, discussion and meditation create a retreat experience with a dharmic theme.
We ask only for $60 to cover the food and accomodation costs for the weekend. Any additional donations on top of that are much appreciated. Suitable for all levels of experience, including complete beginners.
