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.
