Father's Retreat: Embodying the Power of Vajrapani

The mysterious blue Bodhisattva Vajrapani is the archetypal embodiment of transformative spiritual power and energy in pursuit of the highest good.

During this weekend, we will delve deeply into the potent symbolic message of Vajrapani and learn how to cultivate a deeper connection with this awe-inspiring figure, allowing us to better support and nurture ourselves and those around us with grace and ease, whilst making progress on the path. We will explore practices that enable us to awaken, tap into, and develop our inner sources of energy and spiritual vitality.

Join other Triratna fathers for a weekend of transformation and renewal, and leave feeling rejuvenated and ready to face the challenges of fatherhood with renewed vigour.

Coming on retreat

Coming on a retreat at Padmaloka is a step into another way of being, where we temporarily take up a way of life that is more supportive of Buddhist Practice. We go forth from our ordinary circumstances, our comforts and distractions so that we can discern and move towards our ideals and help others to do so as well.

When booking a retreat at Padmaloka it is important to get a sense of how you will be living here - what our customs, etiquettes and requirements for being on retreat are.
