Last month I took part in another weeklong retreat at The Hermitage Tibetan Buddhist retreat centre in North Wales.
The retreat was a weeklong study retreat on Sensitivity and Mandala Principle – two core theme’s in Lama Shenpen‘s Discovering the Heart of Buddhism, the experiential distance learning course in meditation and Buddhism. It was an incredible week of teachings and study, meditation, silence and discussion. As well as an opportunity to meet new sangha members and reconnect with Dharma friends.
The retreats always end with a pilgrimage to a nearby sacred site, and this time we visited Cwm Pennant in Snowdonia. It’s a very special valley that H.H. Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche divined as sacred too.
I wrote about the pilgrimage and took more photos which can be viewed at www.sacredsiteswales.co.uk
