Rivendell Retreat 27th to 29th June: Touching the Earth of our Experience
The Theme of the Retreat is "Touching the Earth of our Experience" - Mindfulness (open nonjudgemental awareness of what is happening in experience in the present moment) within the light of the deep blue Buddha
" Akshobya". Akshobya represents the quality of imputurbablility and his Wisdom is the Mirror-like Wisdom of seeing things as they really are (when not distorted by self-bias). This is a theme that I'm personally feeling very inspired by at the moment, and I'm already looking forward to retreating with you in the beautiful and magical realm of Rivendell!
