Finding the Dragon

After Spring like weather earlier in the week the weather turned back towards winter but that didn’t stop a team trip into Snowdonia in search of Dragons on Dinas Emrys. The weather was a mixture of rain and snow with a very occasional hint of sun and a dragon was found and befriended.

Here’s a link to the details of the legend which has hints of Padmasambhava about it.

First Cut of the Year

First Cut of the Year.

1st April and the first cut of the Vajraloka lawns. The winter has been relatively mild after the cold and snow of the last year when we had to walk people out from two of the retreats because the road was blocked with snow. Spring and early summer are a lovely time to come on retreat at Vajraloka. The bluebells in the dell area now emerging from the ground for their beautiful display in a month or so’s time and the birds are beginning to really sing the change of season in.

From the beginning of June we will be closed for three months to facilitate the Building of the new Shower Annexe but we still have places on a number of our retreats between now and then.

Update on new Annex project

As some of you may know Vajraloka is planning an upgrade to our Annex. This will provide more toilet and shower facilities, which for those of you who have been to Vajraloka will know is much needed.
We have been raising funds for this project which we expect to be in the region of £80000, and through our supporters generosity we have raised almost three quarters of this target.

The centre is closed over the summer for the work to proceed and once completed it will offer, literally a great deal of relief!

If you can offer Vajraloka  help to reach our final target this will be very much appreciated by the team and all who come to stay with us on retreat for the many years to come.

You can either use the my donate link on this site or feel free to contact us to arrange a bank or pay-pal payment. Cheques can be made out to FWBO Corwen.

Gift aid is most welcome if you are in a position to do so and we can forward a form for this if necessary.

Once again thanks for all your support, financially and  all that good will from so many of you.

2019 Retreats – now bookable

All of the retreats and retreat descriptions for 2019 are now up on the site – check the Calendar page and click to read the descriptions of retreats you’re interested in. You can also book from the page of each individual retreat.

The printed programme will be available soon – at the moment there is a temporary link on the calendar page which you can use to download the PDF of the full programme. (We’ll shortly have one up that does away with the adverts.)

Hope to see you here at Vajraloka during the coming months!

From the team,
