Fathers’ Retreat

Towers to Build: The Life and Teachings of Milarepa
Friday, 15 November 2024 to Sunday, 17 November 2024

Spiritual life is essentially a matter of the transformation of the individual, and there is perhaps no better exemplar of this process than Milarepa, the legendary Tibetan yogi and poet, whose life story demonstrates the power of spiritual practice to bring about profound change. Milarepa's life story is a powerful reminder that no matter how far we have strayed from the path, it is always possible to turn things around and make a fresh start.

During this weekend, we will explore Milarepa’s journey from a life of extreme unskilfulness to full spiritual realization, and we will learn how to apply Milarepa's teachings to our own lives, cultivating greater compassion, wisdom, and clarity in the process. This is an opportunity to connect with other Triratna fathers and deepen our spiritual practice in a supportive and friendly environment through meditation, discussion, ritual, and reflection.
