Everything which manifests is composed of the five elements–space, water, earth, fire and air–which are inherent qualities of the true nature of mind. This includes our everyday experiences of the land, lakes, wind and sky, but also more subtle aspects of our being–our senses and the qualities of our experience. Join us as we explore the full spectrum of the elements–the rich solidity of earth, the refreshing clarity of water, the dancing heat of fire, the bracing vitality of the air and ever-yielding space.
The weekend will begin with an overview and, for those who wish to explore each element in more depth, we will continue for a five-day retreat. We are delighted to be hosted at Brilley with wonderful glamping accommodation to suit all budgets, where we will have an opportunity to practice in the presence of a stupa that is a twin to the one at the Hermitage. The stupa itself can be seen as a symbolic representation of the elements, and will form an important support for our practice. We hope the retreat will provide an opportunity for making a personal connection with each of the great elements–the mahabhuta.
