Friday 17 December – Sunday 19 December at Vijayaloka Retreat Centre in Minto Heights
This retreat is aimed at men who are fairly new to Buddhism and meditation. We will look at ways we can effect positive change in our lives through practices such as meditation and ethical life style.
The Buddha teaches that it is in our power to change our lives for the better. Through understanding the causes of unhappiness and discontent we can work on letting go of unhelpful thoughts and habits.
The possibility that we can change for the better is inspiring. We learn to practise developing kind helpful thoughts and habits. Gradual changes lead to a flowering of a new way of being.
"If we train our mind properly, happiness will be the result.”
- David Lungtok, a Buddhist monk
Through sharing our wisdom with each other we will look at the ways we can grow and develop. The program will include meditation, discussion and the opportunity to enjoy free time in the natural beauty of Vijayaloka, our retreat centre in Minto Heights.
