You are warmly invited to participate in our annual BuddhaDharmaSangha camp – a gathering of dharma friends new and old. The camp is a wonderful opportunity to practice Dharma in the time honoured way of the Buddha – in the beauty of nature, together with a like minded Sangha.
We will combine Insight Meditation, Qigong and Inquiry with the transformational quality of the natural world and being together in both silence and conversation. We will also devote some time in smaller groups for sharing our experience in seeking to apply the dharma to our modern lifestyles and exploring ways to nurture spiritual companionship in our lives. There will be space for formal practice and discussion groups, as well as time to enjoy being in nature and hanging out with others, walks on the moor, nights around the campfire, star gazing, songs, stories and… whatever we decide to create!
If you decide to book a place on the camp we are ask that you commit to a wholehearted participation in the core structural elements of camp, including:
- keeping the morning silence
- engaging in the practices and teachings offered
- attending daily camp gatherings and small group sharing meetings
These are essential parts of what makes the BDS such a unique and wonderful field of spiritual practice and community.
