Ajahn Brahm's "The Art Of Disappearing" UK Tour:
11th - 24th Nov 2022 

 

We are more than thrilled to announce that the “real-life Ajahn Brahm” is returning to England this Autumn, after almost three years!
 

As we all know, the pandemic circumstances prevented Ajahn Brahm from travelling outside Australia in recent years, yet Ajahn fulfilled his unwavering commitment to Anukampa by teaching two seven-day online retreats (and many other talks) along with Venerable Canda, in 2020 and 2021. The retreats were extremely well received, with over 150 full-time attendants benefitting profoundly. Now things are slowly started going back to normal, Ajahn Brahm has agreed to visit us in the UK again.

 

This year we are offering an 8-day donation-based residential retreat as well as a selection of talks, in London, Oxford, Birmingham, Stroud, and Bristol, so that as many people as possible can have access to our much loved and trusted meditation master, revered for his humour, wisdom, compassion and peace.

Ajahn Brahm & Ven Canda ~ An 8-Day Donation-Based Residential Retreat In England! 

"The Art Of Disappearing" 

 

This retreat is now full with a waiting list. Click the button below for more information and to apply for the waiting list.

 
In this retreat, Ajahn Brahm will show us the way to reduce our expectations and follow the Buddha's path of understanding and non-clinging. Gradually, as we turn away from the outside world, and turn our attention inwardly to our present moment experiences, our understanding grows, and we can learn to let go of our desire for control. We learn how it feels to experience the great freedom of disappearing. Embodying everything he teaches and with an extraordinary ability to inspire, Ajahn Brahm is the perfect person to guide us in the joyful art of disappearing!

 

By coming to the retreat you are agreeing to train in observing the the Eight Precepts.

 

Depending on government guidelines and the requirements of the retreat centre relating to the covid situation closer to the time, you will be asked to follow our Covid Policy and Procedure. We kindly ask that you cooperate with this, for the safety of the community as a whole and to assist the retreat organisers in the smooth-running of the retreat. We thank you for your understanding.

Tuesday & Thursday Silent Sitting Group

Every Tuesday and Thursday 19:15 - 20:00 UK Time via Zoom (please join early as you will need to be punctual to be let in!)

 

One wonderful outcome of Ajahn Brahm's "Fizz & Sparkle" retreat was a request that we continue a regular silent meditation session for our beloved community, in the same vein as the valued silent sitting session that we hold during our retreats. One of our Zoomi Bhikkhuni co-hosts, Matthias, has generously offered to host this on behalf of Anukampa for us all to join whenever we wish.
 

"Since the retreat we have had a regular group of about 20 people, so hopefully by sharing the joining link here, we can increase out combined meditation power by having more of you (physically and spiritually) present! I hope that meditating with Dhamma friends weekly will be a support for you to develop and maintain your own home practice - it never fails to amaze me how strongly connected we can be from afar distance and without even uttering a word, so I also enjoy popping from time to time." ~ Ven Canda
 
 

This is NOT a guided meditation session. The session is intended for those who are looking for a virtual community to practise together.
