Young person's weekend - Footsteps of delight

Friday, 14 October 2022 to Sunday, 16 October 2022 2022

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.

There is a Way.
