Event Details

Why is so much of our suffering brought about by our wanting something or someone or wanting to be someone? Wanting to be somewhere else or to be a yet unattained self?

Join Bhante Tejadhammo for this weekend retreat where we will try to give up that which only exists in our wanting it or desiring it.

Teacher: Venerable Tejadhammo Bhikku – Bhante – is the Spiritual Director of the Association of Engaged Buddhists.

Venerable Tejadhammo Bhikku was ordained by Venerable Tanchaokhun Phra Visalsalmanagun, Chaokhana Changwat, Phuket, in Thailand. Bhante has a background in Western Philosophy and Theology, and has studied and taught at Silpakorn University, Thailand. Before returning to Australia he taught in Thai universities and jails. Although ordained in the Theravada tradition, he has also studied with Tibetan and Mahayana teachers and has a commitment to the Dharma that he believes encompasses all traditional expressions of it. He is a founding member of Australian Monastic Encounter, which seeks to promote inter-religious and inter-monastic dialogue.

Cost: $250 – $300, covering accommodation and all vegetarian meals. Registrations close 13 March. As in the Buddhist tradition, there will be an opportunity to offer the teacher a donation (dāna or generosity) after the retreat.
