with Kadam Bridget Heyes
Date: 7pm Monday 6th – 1pm Friday 10th May 2019
A relaxing Buddhist retreat on the beautiful island of Menorca. Each session will begin with 20 minutes of Buddhist prayers to create the best inner space for meditation, then Kadam Bridget Heyes will give a brief introduction and guide all the meditations. Each evening, there will be a longer chanted meditation session (the Wishfulfilling Jewel prayers) that you may attend if you wish.
The International Retreat Centre in Menorca will be hosting us for this trip. It is a secluded refuge set in forested hills in a large conservation area, with a beautiful Temple, visitor accommodation, and scenic terraces. IRC Menorca is located in the centre of the island. It has beautiful walks and is known for its tranquillity. Menorca is not your typical Spanish tourist-trap – it is rustic and unspoilt, a glimpse of a pre-commercialised Spain.
IRC Menorca is in a perfect setting for retreat: quiet and isolated, with woodland walks. Our retreat will be outside of tourist season, when the island is relaxed and quiet; the weather in May is warm but variable. The coast and towns are a 15-minute drive away.
The temple is a 2-minute walk away from the main building, along a sloping woodland trail. We regret that the site is not wheelchair accessible.
The introduction starts at 7pm on Monday, but there will be a welcome meeting at 5pm. Full timetable coming soon.
