Monastic Summer Residential Retreat Thursday, 19th June to Sunday 22nd 2014. At Wiston Lodge near Biggar.

Freedom: Now or Never

Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free.

Thich Nhat Hanh.

The Wild Geese warmly invite you to join us on our Summer retreat from Thursday, 19th to Sunday, 22nd June, guided by Br Phap Vu of Blue Cliff Monastery USA.

Through the Buddha’s teachings we find that freedom is possible not in the future but in the present moment. “Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. The only obstacle is our own mind. With the practice of mindfulness, concentration and insight we are empowered to choose which path we take – going along with the same old habit energy or the path that leads to liberation and freedom. In this retreat we will examine some of the basic teachings of the Buddha in order to transform our obstacles and go down the path of liberation. So what are you waiting for? It’s now or never.
