Finding the source of infinite love
Dzogchen summer retreat with James Low
A 4 day summer retreat in the beautiful grounds of Chiddinglye estate
near Forest Row, Sussex. July 28 - 31st
This retreat will focus on uncovering the pure source of love within us. Through meditation and reflection we will practise seeing the illusory nature of the limiting concepts which situate us in partiality. In this way we will open ourselves to the infinite expanse of inclusive awareness and thereby free our compassion to flow as required.
Crises tend to increase the polarisation of positions and so if we support one side we are likely to be against the other side. War intensifies this even more as each side makes their own non-negotiable judgments about who and what is good or bad. Loving our friends and hating our enemies will not liberate us from the structure of conflict.
However we can free ourselves from this either/or dichotomy by looking within and finding in our hearts the source of infinite love, of nondual impartial love, a love that remains open and available whatever the pressure. This love is intrinsic to our buddha nature, to our capacity to ripen wisdom and compassion in the service of all.
Given the ever increasing rate of change it can be useful to find a space of clarity and equanimity which allows us to participate in the world with minimal judgment and reactivity.
We will look at how a non dual understanding can help with this.
The retreat will also offer Tai Chi and beautiful music.
The price includes camping, teachings & music.
This is a beautiful summer retreat potentially of benefit to anyone.
A true treasure in this fleeting life.
This is a wonderful opportunity to take a break from the endless distractions of life and simply be
at ease, relaxed and present .
The retreat is held in a large open stretch tent with big open sides, plenty of fresh air and space.
(it can fit up to 400 but we will be a maximin of 100, so there is lots of space, see pics below)
There are also two very large Gers/Yurts that have open sides for relaxing, meditation, eating.
The retreat is held on the beautiful Chiddinglye estate which has large extensive grounds
with plenty of splendid walks, nature and wildlife.
