Guru Yoga Mandala Offering Retreat
This traditional Buddhist retreat gives us the opportunity to familiarize ourselves with the powerful practice of offering mandalas in conjunction with Guru Yoga. Mandala in this context means the entire universe, which is visualized as a completely pure land and is then offered to the Buddhas. Through this practice, we receive the blessings of all Buddhas, in order to cleanse our negativity and accumulate merit.
Please bring: Mandala kit or request one when you are registering.
What to expect
This Guru Yoga Mandala Offering Retreat is unguided, which means everyone offers mandalas and meditate in their own time, in silence. Each session starts and ends with the buddhist prayers “Offering to the Spiritual Guide” .
During the retreat session breaks, there will be tea, cake and a vegetarian / vegan lunch on offer. The meditation room will be a silent area throughout the whole retreat for those who like to stay in calm and meditative space. The gardens and café offer plenty of opportunity to relax and enjoy the company of like-minded people.
