Kings Caple, Nr Ross on Wye, Herefordshire, HR1 4UA, United Kingdom
Following the success of the previous Chenrezik retreats at Poulstone Court, we will be using this delightful venue in rural Herefordshire once again for our seventh residential weekend Chenrezik retreat. We have provisional dates of the weekend of Friday 27th to Sunday 29th October 2023 and hope to be able to confirm the dates early in 2023.
We will follow the sadhana called “The Benefit of Beings that Pervades Space: The Meditation Recitation of the Great Compassionate One” by Tangtong Gyalpo, the sadhana which is widely practiced at our Dechen Centres. [Please note: The retreat is only open to Dechen sangha members who have taken refuge and received a Chenrezik initiation and/or the reading transmission (lung) of this practice from 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, carpets and cushions, which will 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 vegetarian special diets can be catered for here on request.
You can see pictures of previous retreats here: Autumn retreat 2022 and Winter retreat 2021.
