      True Peace & Freedom Beyond the I-Making and Mine-Making: Weekend Retreat with Ajahn Tiradhammo

      Ajahn Tiradhammo is a warm and cheerful Bhikkhu, and always an interesting speaker. With 45 years of experience as a Buddhist Monk, Ajahn Tiradhammo has led many meditation retreats throughout the world. We are privileged that Venerable Ajahn is able to lead the November Retreat at Wat Buddha Dhamma. The Retreat schedule will consist of morning/evening chanting, mindful work, sitting/walking meditation, meditation instructions in the morning, Dhamma talks and Q&A in the evening. Retreatants are asked to observe the eight precepts and noble silence. This retreat is suitable for beginners and experienced meditators. Arrival and check-in between 4 pm and 6 pm on Friday, 15th November. Retreatants are asked to observe the eight precepts and noble silence. This retreat is suitable for beginners and experienced meditators. Important Information for New Retreatants Accommodation at the Wat is simple and generally shared. Facilities are basic as the Wat is not on mains electricity. The buildings are well spread out and so a certain amount of walking along bush tracks is necessary. Retreatants are asked to come prepared for various weather conditions and a torch is a must. Also note that no meals are served after midday and we are unable to cater for specific dietary needs. In keeping with our tradition there is no charge for accommodation or food at the Wat. As a Theravadin monastery, we are fully supported by donations in the form of food, money, and volunteer labour. Retreatants are encouraged to consider how they might contribute to the needs of maintaining the monastery, while at the same time cultivating wholesome states of mind. All retreatants are asked to abide by the following Precepts and Monastery rules: To refrain from killing or harming any living being. To refrain from taking that which is not given. To refrain from any sexual activity. No physical contact or intimacy with another person. To refrain from false or harsh speech. To refrain from taking intoxicants which confuse the mind. To refrain from eating before sunrise and after noon. To refrain from entertainments, beautification and adornment. To join in the monastery schedule and work duties. To refrain from using computers, telephones, and internet.
