Guru mandala retreat
This retreat is an opportunity to practise offering mandalas. In this practice, we imagine a pure & peaceful world beyond suffering and offer it to others to create special causes for such a world to arise. The retreat is also a special method for making a connection with a Spiritual Guide and receiving their blessings.
There are four 75 minute guided meditation sessions a day, at 9am , 11am , 4.30pm and 7.30pm. We will provide an information sheet and diagram on how to offer a mandala. Each session consists of a teaching, prayers and silence for meditation and offering mandalas, either by imagination, or by creating rice representations. You are welcome to attend any or all of the sessions.
What do I need to bring for my mandala kit?
We have a couple of full kits here and also alternative ones for the purpose of this retreat. Otherwise, feel free to bring a 1kg bag of rice, a small-medium sized plate and a 80cm square piece of cloth to contain the plate and rice (the cloth also catches the rice as you are making your mandala offerings).
