The Theravada Group of the Hampshire Buddhist Society warmly welcomes you to a day retreat
led by Ajahn Karuniko, the Abbot of Chithurst Buddhist Monastery.
The purpose of the day is to become better acquainted with key aspects of the Buddha’s teaching
through the practice of meditation. The day will be suitable for newcomers as well as established meditators. The day will consist of dhamma teaching from Ajahn Karuniko, sitting & walking meditation and also an opportunity to ask questions. Please bring your contribution to a ‘pot-luck’ vegetarian shared lunch. Tea, coffee and water will be provided.
Chairs will be available, but you might like to bring your own meditation cushion. There is no fixed charge for this retreat, but there will be a bowl available for contributions towards the cost of the day, including a gift to Chithurst Buddhist monastery.
