Stupa Retreat: 25 October – 03 November 2021
Living, working and practising together as a community while building a dry stone stupa dedicated to Dhardo Rinpoche, to hold some of his ashes.
We will be led by Tracey Blackwell, a talented dry stone waller with over a decade of experience who is very excited about coming to lead this project. She has co-led a work retreat at Ambaranta’s place in Spain, repairing and rebuilding the stone terraces there. In our local area, there are various examples of dry stone wayside shrines and well-housings that have inspired our design. We have already begun collecting stone and clearing the site in preparation.
Dardho Rinpoche’s ashes have been sitting on the community shrine waiting for this vision to manifest. You can help to bring the vision into being. Join Maitreyi and the community for 10 days of hard work, meditation, ritual and relaxation in the context of spiritual friendship and fun.
We will be asking for €100 deposit to secure a place and as a donation to cover expenses. In other words there will be no need to pay more than the deposit although generosity is always welcome and to be encouraged!
Please email the community if you’re interested in joining the retreat…
