August 12-18 (arrival on August 11, departure on August 18 after breakfast)
This session is for people who wish to enter the Buddha-Way – to receive the precepts.
Receiving the precepts is the first step on the Buddhist path. One then becomes a bodhisattva, a being who practices Awakening and thus helps all existences to become liberated.
During this retreat, teachings will be given on the main aspects of bodhisattva practice:
- Taking refuge in the Three Treasures – Buddha, Dharma, Sangha.
- Repentance: acknowledging without guilt the infinity of our small dysfunctions to access a new life.
- Receiving the precepts.
Whether you wish to enter the Buddha-Way and receive the precepts, or support through your practice those who will receive the precepts, you are all welcome to this session.
– For those who wish to receive the precepts, registration is by contacting the secretariat at email@example.com ;
– For those who come to practice without receiving the precepts, registration is done through the Summer Retreat registration form.
Single fee for the session (6 days): 275€ (for those who receive the precepts)
Smaller budgets can ask for a reduction according to their income (on presentation of proof).
