From the 10th-18th of December, 2015, there will be 8-day silent meditation retreat that will be held right here at a UQ college. The teacher will be Ven. U Dhammajiva of Meetirigala Nissarana Vanaya. This is quite a well known meditation monastery in Sri Lanka. (http://www.nissarana.lk/wwwww/retreats/public/index.php). With the encouragement of Ven. Sudhamma and the retreat organisers, we are hoping to send a number of participants from UQ Buds.
This year’s retreat will be conducted in English, which is truly a blessing. Applications close June 30th. The cost for accommodation for eight days is $264 (lunch is sponsored, but breakfast should be arranged individually) + the cost for the teacher’s airfare (currently unknown), which will be split between many participants.
Please send the appropriate paperwork to Chandana Samarasinghe: email donsamara[at]hotmail.com.
