According to Buddhism there are three types of being: small, middling and great. Small beings can be further divided in two; ordinary small beings and special small beings. Whereas ordinary small beings
such as animals and most humans seek only the happiness of their present life, special small beings seek the happiness of future lives.
Buddha explained that each and every living being has the potential to increase the capacity of their mind through spiritual practice and thereby advance from the state of an ordinary small being to that of a great being – a being bound for the supreme happiness of enlightenment.
On this special retreat Kadam Mick Marcon will explain and guide the meditations of a person of initial scope for the purpose of elevating our mind to the level of a special small being.
Kadam Mick Marcon is the Resident Teacher at Losang Dragpa Kadampa Buddhist Centre and has been practising meditation and Buddhism since 2004. With his clear understanding of Buddha’s teachings and down-to-earth manner, Kadam Mick inspires us to develop a pure and happy mind.
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. Accommodation is included and all meals are catered for.
