Young Buddhist Retreat – Shepherd’s Search for the Mind
Friday March 9, 2018, 7:00 pm - Monday March 12, 2018, 3:00 pm
What is the nature of mind? It’s more than you think. We’ll explore the radical approach of a Tibetan yogi which is just as relevant today as it was 1000 years ago.
Milarepa was an extraordinary Buddhist practitioner in 2nd Century AD, who spent long periods living in a cave in the mountains of Tibet in order to discover the nature of mind. He underwent many trials and hardships and pursued the Dharma with great vigour. Once he had come to see the true nature of all things he wandered around Tibet giving teachings to all he met with humour, directness, beauty and kindness. Over this long weekend, we will explore the beauty and passion of Milarepa’s practice and what he discovered about the mind, consciousness and what it means to be truly alive.
Join the Young Melbourne Buddhist Group as they go on a 3 day long weekend retreat together.
Being on retreat allows the opportunity to take our practice deeper, away from usual distractions and stresses to gain a richer experience of ourselves and others in natural surroundings. There will be meditation, study and discussion and time to hang out together.
