This Mythic Context retreat will focus on the symbolism of the Stupa. The stupa is an architectural symbol encompassing the elements of the natural world, the spiritual path and the unity of Enlightened mind. Using colours and shapes, we are guided into a freeing of energy into boundless space. The stupa is also a symbol of the ordination process at Tiratanaloka. Sangharaskhita described our own stupa as a ‘Miracle Stupa’ saying that the only true miracle is when someone makes the transition from a worldly to a spiritual life. This retreat will focus on different elements in the symbolism of the stupa drawing on Sangharakshita’s lectures on ‘Creative Symbols of the Tantric Path ’ in study, meditation and puja.
The team for this retreat includes Karunadhi, Prajnagita and Santavajri.
