WINTER RETREAT 2013: 22nd Dec – 1st Jan in Herefordshire
Escape the Burning House.
The greatest certainty is that we will die; the greatest uncertainty is we don’t know when. How do we make the most of being alive right now? How do we notice our life as it happens?
On this year’s Winter Retreat we’ll be creating conditions – away from the dissipations of social media and the internet – in which we can lead the best kind of life: through meditation, discovering the Buddha’s vision of human Enlightenment, making friends, living closely with nature, living communally, developing awareness, contacting the imagination, and ripening emotional positivity and courage. This retreat is for complete newcomers or those in their first years of practice. You can come for ten days of five days.

TRIRATNA DEVELOPMENT TEAM COLLATING NEW INITIATIVES
The Development Team) are drawing up a list of all the new initiatives being planned or even just being thought about just now in Triratna, and the people behind them. We’re interested in all types of initiative - Dharma, Right Livelihood, social enterprise; for-profit and not-for-profit, team-based and one-man-bands - anything so long as they’d want to see it as part of the Triratna Buddhist Community in its widest sense. We’d like to find ways to encourage such people and their projects, offer them training, put them in touch with one another (and with us) - and thereby facilitate more new enterprises of all sorts come into being in Triratna.
We’re considering putting on a series of monthly team-building and training weekends over the Autumn this year for anyone with plans for new initiatives, to do that we need to get in touch with the right people! I think there’s a lot of new ideas out there and being planned - our list has nearly 30 people on it already, but I’m sure there are a lot more out there as well who we don’t know of yet.

Yours in the Dharma,
