Urban Retreats

Finding real protection

KMC ADELAIDE • SAT 25 & SUN 26 MAR • 9AM - 3.30PM

The purpose of this retreat is to deepen our experience of refuge. The foundation of the Buddhist way of life is to go for refuge – to Buddha, to guide us along the spiritual path to enlightenment; to Dharma (Buddha’s teachings), the opponent to delusions, the source of all our suffering; and to Sangha (those practising Buddha’s teachings) to inspire us, show a good example and to help us along the path to inner peace.

Each session lasts for one and a half hours and consists of chanted prayers sung in English and silent meditation. There is no charge for any of the sessions.

The retreat begins with a Refuge Vow Ceremony on Saturday morning but you are welcome to attend the other sessions without taking the vows. If you do have a sincere wish to take the Refuge Vows please contact Sarah at education@meditateinadelaide.org for more information.
