Walking the Bodhisattva Path


with Peter Conradi
December 15 / 9:30 AM - December 16 / 6:00 PM

In this weekend retreat, we will explore the Mahayana Buddhist path of dedicating one's life and practice to rousing awakened heart, and engaging the practices of a warrior for the benefit of all sentient beings. We will practice shamatha-vipashyana meditation, and there will be talks and discussions on the Transition from Hinayana to Mahayana, The Bodhisattva Vow, The Practice of Rousing Bodhichitta and The Six Paramitas.

Peter Conradi is a long-term student of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and has been appointed by the Sakyong as a 'shastri', or senior teacher. He is English Professor Emeritus at Kingston University, and the author of a number of books including Going Buddhist and Iris Murdoch: A Life. He is an elected fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.

This weekend retreat is suitable for both new and more experienced meditators, and those wishing to develop their practice through an exploration of key Buddhist teachings.


The weekend begins on Saturday at 9.30 am and lasts until 6.30 pm. Sunday continues from 9.30 am ending roughly at 6.30 pm. Lunch is provided on both days.
