What is the Order? - online retreat

“In the spiritual community, the rigid application of rules is replaced by something far more subtle:  a living network of friendship and communication centred on the highest shared ideals” (Sangharakshita: Living with Kindness)

What does it mean for each of us to join the Order as spiritual community – is it a support, a practice in itself or something altogether different?    We’ll be examining the nature of kalyana mitrata and the significance of the private and public ordinations in order to find our own answers.

On this online retreat, we'll be studying Tiratanloka's handbook entitled What is the Order?  This, and links to supplementary reading, can be found here

Thd retreat will involve a morning session from 10:30 - 13:00, an afternoon meditation at 16:00 and an evening session at 19:45 - all via Zoom.  We'll end at 13:00 on the last day.  If you think you'll be unable to commit to this timetable, please contact the team before booking.
