Spring Urban Retreat – Head, Heart, Legs – The Three Forms of Faith

Friday 15th April 2022 - Sunday 17th April 2022

Led by Vajrashura, Sadayasihi, Prasannadeva & Prajnamayi

As covid restrictions ease the possibilities for us to practice as a Sangha multiply. On this urban retreat we’ll be spending the weekend together in the DBC, rededicating ourselves and the DBC space to Dharma practice.

We’ll be meditating, hearing Dharma talks, discussing the Dharma and chanting together, re-igniting our inspiration, confidence and faith in the Three Jewels.

Sraddha

In Buddhism, faith or sraddha is simply the mind’s responsiveness to higher values and is, therefore, a fundamental part of every positive mental state we experience.

Throughout the centuries Buddhist scholars have identified three aspects of faith essential to practising the Dharma: ‘deep’ faith, a firm cognitive understanding of the teachings of the Buddha, ‘lucid’ faith, an emotional resonance with something higher, and ‘longing’ faith, a conviction that we can move in the direction of complete freedom of mind and heart ourselves.

On our Spring Retreat we will be exploring these three forms of faith – sometimes known as the ‘head’, ‘heart’ and ‘legs’ dimensions of this positive mental state.

Suitable for: Anyone who already has an established meditation practice with the DBC or other Triratna Sangha.

This urban retreat will run in-person and online. We’d really encourage you to come in-person if you can, and, because of space limitations, ask that you commit to coming in-person to all the sessions.
