Going for Refuge - Available Spaces

We’re happy to announce that there are available spaces on the upcoming Going for Refuge retreat starting this Saturday evening.

Going for Refuge to the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha is ‘the central and definitive act of the Buddhist life’ and ‘the unifying principle, therefore, of Buddhism itself,’ according to Sangharakshita.

Ordination training is orientated towards a progressive deepening of Going for Refuge until it becomes effective in all aspects of our lives; the ceremony of ordination involves the witnessing, by senior Order members, of this effective Going for Refuge. During this online seminar, we will study Padmavajra's series of talks ‘The Best of Refuges’ and explore how we can make the Three Jewels even more central to our lives.

This retreat takes place between 20th and 27th of March and is open for men who’ve asked for ordination and order members.
