Women’s Order/Mitra Retreat

“Tendrils of Inspiration” – Using Creativity and Beauty to Serve the Spiritual Life

Friday August 26, 2022 , 7:00 pm Sunday August 28, 2022 , 3:00 pm

Fully Booked – please contact office@melbournebuddhistcentre.org.au if you would like to be placed on the waiting list

Over the course of the weekend, we will be identifying and exploring different inner voices that may be seeking expression in our spiritual life. Bhante Sangharakshita has written of a tension between what he described as Sangharakshita I, the poet, and Sangharakshita II, the philosopher. 

As this weekend is the anniversary of Bhante’s birthday, we will take this opportunity to discover different aspects of his life through his poetry and memoirs which convey much more than his teachings alone. There will be an opportunity to share your own story or connection with Sangharakshita. Led by Dhiramani, Sraddhanaya, Shantidevi, and Carunetra.

Open to women (including trans* and gender diverse people) who are an Order Member or Mitra of the Triratna Buddhist Community

Venue: Wesburn Recreational Camp/ Yarra Valley

Booking Essential: $230 Full Waged/ 190 Low Waged/ $130 Concession
