A weekend of practice and connection with young Buddhists from across Scotland and beyond. During the retreat we will explore what it means in our lives to follow in the footsteps of the Buddha and join a community of practitioners on a mythic quest for freedom. Through stories, meditation, discussion and ritual we’ll look at what it means to practice the Buddha’s teaching as young people in the 21st Century. As individuals and as a collective many challenges face us as we tread our path through the world.
Seeing the dangers confronting humankind these days, we can feel depressed, demoralised and helpless to avert disaster - or even to talk about such feelings. This retreat provides a space not only to talk but to explore an extraordinary sequence of reflections and communal practices that can rekindle an active hope and vision for humanity.
