BIM Logo Bristol Insight Meditation

The Buddhas teaching includes all aspects of human life. In this day retreat we will explore how to apply these teachings of compassion to our engagement and our relationships, looking particularly at our caring roles. How can Dharma practice resource us as we act in the world, and how can the care we share with others nourish our Dharma practice?

The day will be held in silence and will include periods of inquiry, dialogue and reflection into how our active engagement with the world is supported by inner work and contemplation and vice versa. The day retreat is open to anyone interested in exploring these themes, whether as carers (in your personal or professional lives), as activists, or as individuals wishing to live a more fully engaged life.
