Amida Belgium – Invitation for a summer-retreat in Nature 2020
Retreat with Dharmavidya
Saturday 4 (at 16u) to Saturday 11 July (at 11u)
The Amida Belgium Sangha is inviting you in La Colline éclairée, Frasnes-lez-Buissenal, Belgium, for a retreat in the natural-setting of “Le Pays des Collines”.
Vajrapala and Daniël are living in a hillside area surrounded by forests and open fields and like to share with you their ordinary natural simple life in the spirit of the Buddha’s. There will be space for a lot of silence and enjoying nature, there will be practice, body exercises, meditation, services, nembutsu chanting, individual Dharma study, sharing with the stone, creativity, walking, work in the kitchen and in the garden, relaxing and catch up with each other, laughing, good vegan food and good sleep.
A new opportunity to strengthen our sangha-friendship, to deepen our practice and refuge, to receive and enjoy the love of mother earth in so much forms.
Dharmavidya is coming and he did let us know the following : “I can give talks in which I will share the Dharma as I understand and practise it, its central meaning and its many facets. I hope that those who come shall have also the purpose of investigating the true meaning of the Dharma in their lives.
I can also offer question and answer discussions, mondo sessions and private interviews if these are desired.
Whether there are many or few of us gathered, this will be a auspicious occasion for the transmission of the Dharma. “
The retreat is especially meant for Amida Belgium-Netherlands members, but other members off Amida Order or Shu are also welcome as well as those interested in Amida spirituality.
The suggested donation for meals / catering is € 20 per day plus free donation for retreat guidance, all gifts are welcome, Dharma is without price.
