Talk and discussion with Dónal Creedon
Thursday 28 November at 7:30 pm.
Cost: R100 (R80 members, R50 pensioners, and students).
Do you have to go to India or Nepal to understand the truth of your life(Dharma)?
Do you have to renounce the world and head for the hills?
Do you have to lock yourself up in retreat for years?
Or could it be as the Japanese poet Bashō suggests:
Everyday is a journey and the journey itself is home
Dónal Creedon is a renowned meditation teacher. He has studied and practiced with Buddhist masters of the Kagyu lineage in Europe as well as in India & Nepal. This involved many years of intense retreat. He also spent a number of years at the Krishnamurti Centre in Varanasi as a resident Buddhist scholar, thus the radical inquiry of Krishnamurti informs his approach.
Dónal will be leading a Dharma Encampment retreat at Tara Rokpa Centre from 30 Nov to 21 Dec, with week-long options. There will also be a shorter inquiry-based retreat from 23 to 28 December, Changing Humanity.
