The Mythic Context

Saturday, 16 May 2020 to Saturday, 30 May 2020

Going for Refuge requires the activation of our strongest and deepest emotions. If we are to make any real progress in transforming ourselves, we have to transform our emotional life.

To transform the depths, we need to activate faith and imagination, opening up fully to ‘the mythic context’ of our lives, with its symbols, images, colours and stories. In many ways, the Mythic Context is the retreat that makes sense of all the other ordination training retreats.

The central practices of the retreat are doing nothing and the Going for Refuge and Prostration Practice. We recommend you attend this retreat later in your Ordination training.

The retreat starts with dinner on the first day at 6:30pm and finishes on the final day at 10.00am.

This retreat is followed by the Anapanasati retreat with a one day break in between. If you would like to book onto both of these retreats at a reduced rate, follow this link: http://bit.ly/27dayOrdinationTraining
