Refuge retreat information

The foundation of the Buddhist way of life is to go for refuge – to Buddha, to guide us along the spiritual path to enlightenment; to Dharma (Buddha’s teachings) to protect us from fear and suffering; and to Sangha (those practising Buddha’s teachings) to inspire us, show a good example and to help us along the path to inner peace.

During this retreat, spend time developing the beautiful mind of refuge, fill your mind with inspiring blessings and discover how to free yourself from suffering and problems permanently.
