Vajraloka Retreats

Retreat Title: Relaxing into the Ground of Being

Led by Tejapushpa and Silabodhi

This formless ground is variously called mind-as-such, big mind, awareness, no-self, source, true nature, Self, sunyata, Buddha-nature. Drawing on Dzogchen and Mahamudra texts to guide us, our starting point will be grounding ourselves in embodied meditation. As Padmasambhava said "Relax - do not force your mind or body' and "Know this one thing and everything is freed - remain within your inner nature, your Awareness".

Recognising that we are trapped in self referential thoughts and beliefs that cause our suffering and separate us from the peace and freedom of our true nature: we will offer somatic and heart-based practices and just sitting/pure awareness practice, alongside inquiry into the nature of conceptual thought, pointing to what Awareness is by seeing what it is not.

Tejapushpa and Silabodhi also lead camping meditation retreats at Buddhafield North. They will bring a flavour of that by making the most of the beautiful natural environment of Vajraloka with open air fires and meditating indoors and outdoors.

This retreat is suitable for people who have been meditating for at least 3 years
