The retreat is suitable for those with an established understanding of mindfulness and a regular meditation practice. The retreat will include:
- Opportunities to practice guided and silent sitting meditations, walking meditation, mindful eating and noble silence;
- Opportunities to learn from others through dharma sharing and exploration;
- Dharma teaching from UK Dharma Teachers. We encourage people to have a look at the Discourse on The 5 Ways of Putting an End to Anger in preparation for the retreat.
”When you say something really unkind, when you do something in retaliation your anger increases. You make the other person suffer, and he will try hard to say or do something back to get relief from his suffering. That is how conflict escalates.

About the Dharma Training Program
Please find below the dates of the 2024 DTP. Originally the DTP was seen as a
training programme for those practitioners who wanted to deepen their practice as a
group. People were encouraged to sign up to all three DTP sessions in a year so
that a sangha could be created amongst participants and spiritual friendships
nurtured during these retreats. We would like to encourage you to consider the
programme in this way in 2024 if that is possible for you.
