THE THREE PILLARS OF THE DHARMA

In this silent meditation retreat we will explore the three pillars of the dharma; Dana (generosity), Sila (integrity) and Bhavana (meditation) as ways of pointing out all the practices of letting go of greed, hatred and delusion and of developing the beautiful liberating states of mind.

There will be periods of instruction, silent sitting and walking meditation and opportunities for practice discussions with the teachers.
