Autumn Going for Refuge Weekend | Establishing the Dharmacharya

Friday, 21 October 2022 to Sunday, 23 October 2022

This weekend is a companion to the spring ordination training weekend.

During the weekend, we will be hearing from those newly ordained, as well as from more experienced Order members.

We will be hearing how one becomes established in the Dharmachari’s life, as well as exploring the theme in discussion groups.

Details and Timings

The retreat starts with dinner on the first day at 6:30pm and finishes on the final day at around 2:30pm.

This weekend is directly followed by the Traversing the Imaginal World retreat. Consider making the most of your journey to Padmaloka by booking onto both.

Health and Hygiene

It is vital that you don't come on retreat if you have any symptoms of Covid-19, including a cough, loss or change of smell or taste, a temperature, or any other cold or flu-like symptoms; or if you have been in contact with anyone who has within the past 14 days.

We ask that you take two Lateral Flow Test, one 48 hours before arrival and a second within 24 hours of the retreat starting.
If you haven't taken one by the time you arrive at Padmaloka, we will ask you to do one upon arrival and you will have to wait for the result before entering the buildings.
You can order them free from the UK Government here: Lateral Flow Tests, or from most pharmacies.

We will be observing enhanced hygiene protocols during the retreat, details of which you can find in our Padmaloka Risk Assessment, which is accessible from the Coming on Retreat page.

We will be taking every measure we can to prevent the spreading of Covid-19 during retreats, but despite this, there will remain a risk to those who attend; please consider this when coming on retreat.

If you are unable to attend the retreat due to illness or local lockdown measures then your booking can be transferred to the online aspect of the retreat, or to a future retreat.
