The editors at Western Buddhist Review are pleased to let you know about three opportunities for study coming up in the Triratna Buddhist community:
16–18 April 2021, an online study/practice retreat led by Dhivan and hosted by Dhanakośa retreat centre, with the title The Tree, the Snake and the Goddess: Exploring the Buddha’s Relationship with Nature. We will explore Pāli discourses and extracts from traditional life-stories of the Buddha that show him in intimate relationship with symbols of nature as a living whole.
9–12 July 2021, a Philosophy Symposium with the theme Exploring Higher Evolution, a (we hope) residential long weekend to be held at Adhisthana in Herefordshire, UK, and led by Silavādin, Dhivan and Matt Drage. This will be our fourth Symposium, with talks, discussion, music, and the opportunity to meet others with an interest in philosophy.
10–17 December 2021, a study retreat at Adhisthana with the theme Wisdom Before Words: Studying the Udāna With Sangharakshita's Commentary, led by Dhivan and Sāgaramati. This will be the third retreat hosted by Triratna Scholars, to encourage the scholarly study of Buddhism in Triratna.
Please note that 2. and 3. are open to Triratna mitras and Order members only.
