Event Details

YES, our Autumn Retreat 2022 is back!! This year, we will be having our Autumn Retreat at Sunnataram Forest Monastery during the term break. It is going to be a 3-day-2-night retreat and it will be a great opportunity for you to develop a peaceful and calm mind while experiencing a peaceful monastic life in the quietude of Bundanoon. So don’t miss this opportunity to experience the retreat and learn more about the Dhamma!

What will we be doing?
Under the guidance of Phra Mana Viriyarampo, the abbot of Sunnataram Forest Monastery, we will be learning about different types of meditation, touching upon the meanings of the Dhamma and practice Buddhist teachings in real-life simulations through discussions. When night comes, let us huddle in the warmth of each other’s company and admire the constellations above the night sky.

What if I’m not a student, UNIBUDS member or a full-on Buddhist?
All are welcome! The retreat – and the Monastery itself – receives all beyond its gates and into the light of Buddhism. However, due to regulated restrictions, UNIBUDS members will be prioritised, and a first-come-first-serve basis applies. So do register soon to ensure you don’t miss out on this opportunity!! As a sign of respect to the Monastery, participants must attend the full retreat which goes for 3 days and 2 nights.

How can I register?
Please register online by clicking this link: Register online

Note: there will be a $10 registration deposit, which will be refunded after the retreat. This is to minimise any inconvenience to the monastery caused by participants pulling out at the last minute. It will also allow us to have a good estimate of the number of participants for the retreat to proceed as smoothly as possible. Thank you for your understanding 🙂
