Online: Nirvana for everyone with Stephen Batchelor
4 October 2020 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
This online retreat will be held via zoom. Please register via the tickets below and you will be sent a zoom link on the evening of Saturday 3rd October.
Inspired by an essay of the same name by the Thai teacher Ajahn Buddhadasa, we will respectfully remove nirvana from its pedestal and consider how it is, according to the Buddha, “clearly visible, immediate and inviting” here and now. From a secular Dharma perspective, we will consider nirvana as the ground and source of the middle way itself.
This silent day retreat will be an opportunity to practice sitting and walking meditation, with periods of instruction, talks and discussion.
