Fri May 13th - Meditation Retreat Weekend Mira Silanova  
Sun 15th MayWhere:Calstock 
Cost:£45 Weekend/£15 Saturday 
     
We are having a meditation retreat weekend in Calstock from the 13th May until the 15th May. Our Diamond Way Buddhist teacher for the weekend is Mira Silanova who is currently based at the Vienna Buddhist Centre. On the weekend retreats one really benefits from the lack of distractions which leads to a deeper and more fluid experience in the calmness of mind. These shorter meditation retreats blend together perfectly with daily life and have beneficial effects on each other.
On the retreats we have guided meditations, personal practice and explanations of Buddhist teachings. The cost of the weekend is £45 which includes accommodation, all food and talks and runs from Friday evening until Sunday late afternoon. There is the option of a day visit on the Saturday for the talks and meditations which is from 9am to 7pm. The cost of the full day is £15 which includes lunch & dinner.

The event runs from 7am to 7pm and the meditation for the day is whichever personal practice you are currently doing. The day is divided into twelve, one hour slots so you can choose a time(s) convenient for you. Just like previous 12 hour meditation days, if you haven't had that much experience with meditation then its fine to come along and just do however long you feel comfortable for. The meditation day will be concluded at 6.30pm with a guided 16th Karmapa Meditation. Sign up sheet for meditation times and the meal afterwards @ The Gurkha Kitchen is on the notice board in the centre. ☺
