Death & impermanence • 7-day silent retreat • 14-20 July
Meditation on death is the doorway to pure and powerful spiritual practice. It shatters our spiritual complacency, liberates us from the worries and concerns of this life and inspires us to make the most of every moment of our life in a meaningful way. For those who possess death awareness, it is their wise spiritual guide. In Great Beyond Sorrow Sutra Buddha says: ‘When many different animals have been in the field and have left their footprints, we see it is the elephant who leaves the deepest footprint. In a similar way, when we have practiced many different meditations we shall experience their effects; but it is the meditation on death that makes the deepest impression on our mind’.
On this silent retreat, Resident Teacher, Kadam Mick Marcon will explain how to meditate on death and how to use death awareness to solve our daily problems and give energy to our spiritual life. To create favourable conditions for gaining a deeper experience of meditation, the retreat will be conducted in strict silence and held off-site at The Old Monastery, 47 St Clairs Road, Stroud.
