Main Contact: Stewart Moir  Email  
Notes and Events:

Freely Given Retreats is a charity committed to making Insight Meditation retreats available to everyone, regardless of their financial situation. 

We run a small number of retreats each year in different venues in rural Devon mainly with Gaia House teachers, but also in association with other groups such as Rebel Dharma and Ecodharma.

The generosity of previous retreatants and others allows our retreats to be offered freely. Donations are invited at the end of each retreat and these are the main source of future funding. 

Fundacja Theravada

Address:   Warszawa
Tradition: Theravada
Find on:
Notes and Events:

Buddyzm Theravāda od wielu lat ma w Polsce wielu sympatyków, osób zainteresowanych i praktykujących. Dotychczas jednak nie powstała żadna organizacja, centrum, czy ośrodek który wspierałby polskich Theravādinów w zdobywaniu wiedzy o naukach Buddhy, bazujących na kanonie palijskim oraz praktykowaniu tychże.

Postanowiliśmy to zmienić i założyć Fundację Theravāda. Liczymy na Wasze zainteresowanie i współpracę. Fundacja nie jest związana z konkretnym nauczycielem ani tradycją czy odłamem buddyzmu. Jesteśmy otwarci na wszystkie osoby autentycznie zainteresowane naukami buddyjskimi na podstawie kanonu palijskiego.

Notes and Events:

Schedule : Every Monday : 6:15 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

spirit of the teaching :

Zen Meditation or Zazen consists in the practice of a quiet sitting. Thanks to an every-moment-let-go, the mental images which veil the true nature of ones inner being, fade and make way for the very essence of Reality. Stemming from Chinese, then Japanese Buddhism, Zazen does not purport to a philosophical, religious, mystical or ethical system. It is a path for awakening oneself to ones core-reality. The method transmitted here belongs to the Sôtô, which is one of the two main branches of Zen, as taught by Master Kôsho Uchiyama who wanted to cleanse the practice from all ritualistic or religious superfluity. He emphasised the fundamental importance and correctness of the meditative posture.
