Kings Caple, Nr Ross on Wye, Herefordshire, HR1 4UA, United Kingdom
Following on from the great success of the previous three November weekend Chenrezik retreats at Poulstone Court, we have booked this delightful venue in rural Herefordshire once again for the weekend of Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th November 2019 for our fourth residential weekend Chenrezik retreat. The retreat is open to Dechen sangha members and students of Lama Jampa Thaye.
We highly recommend you to attend if you are a new Chenrezik practitioner to help familiarise yourself with the practice, and seasoned practitioners are also very welcome, as we can all benefit from practising together in a group setting in this very favourable environment.
Poulstone Court is a large Victorian house in rural Herefordshire, about an hour and a quarter’s drive from Bristol. Facilities there include a spacious meditation room with large windows and extensive rural views. We will set the room up with a beautiful shrine, the stunning Chenrezik thangka from Bristol Sakya Centre, Tibetan carpets and cushions, which will all go to create an inspiring practice space. There is a large living room full of sofas where we can relax in breaks between sessions with self-service tea/coffee available all day/evening, a dining area where delicious vegetarian food is served three times a day, and all this is surrounded by open countryside with the River Wye close by. All kinds of special diets can be catered for here.
