There Are Other Earths and Skies Than These

Day Retreat

Sunday 28th July 2024, 10am – 4.30pm

Led by Osadha

“They ask me why I live in the green mountains.
I smile and don’t reply; my heart’s at ease.
Peach blossoms flow downstream, leaving no trace —
And there are other earths and skies than these.”

The last line of this short poem by the 8th century Chinese hermit Li Po reveals to us a mind at peace and unfettered by worldly concerns. On this day retreat we will use this poem as a basis for an exploration of how the spiritual life unfolds, beginning right where we are and culminating in a radical vision of existence.

Osadha learnt to meditate with the Dublin Buddhist Centre in 1993. He was ordained in 1999 and spent nine years in the UK working for Triratna before returning to Ireland in 2006. He lives in north Wicklow with his family and earns a living from running drumming workshops. He is also involved in running a Triratna group in Kilcoole.
