Bodhisattva Path – City Retreat with Ven. Mary Reavey

October 5, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - October 7, 2018 @ 4:00 pm

50kr - 800kr

Bodhichitta, or the mind of enlightenment that aspires to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all sentient beings, is the heart of the Mahayana path.  This weekend is a rare opportunity to explore different methods that cultivate this precious motivation.

The city retreat will be a combination of teaching, meditations, and discussions. You will also have an opportunity to request advice about your practice.

The retreat is suitable for beginners as well as the more experienced students who aim to deepen their meditation experience.

About Venerable Mary Reavey

Born in Dundee, Scotland, Mary was a Staff Nurse when she first encountered Buddhism at Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition’s mother monastery -Kopan -in Nepal in 1978. It was her love of adventure and trekking that led her to Kopan. Mary attended a month-long course taught by Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa who emphasized the importance of meditation and taking complete responsibility for your own actions and their effects.

In 2001 Mary took ordination as a nun with Lama Zopa Rinpoche, then taught meditation and Buddhist philosophy at Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds, Buddhist centres in Preston, Liverpool, and at Armley Prison, Dumfries Prison, Leeds General Infirmary, St. James’ Hospital and Wheatfields Hospice, where she held regular meditation sessions until 2012.

Over the years Venerable Mary Reavey has undertaken and led many meditation retreats. She completed a one-year solitary retreat in 2014 and another three-month retreat in 2015. She continues to regularly teach at Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds, Jamyang Liverpool and in York. Ven Mary has recently moved to Jedburgh in order to live nearer to Land of Joy Retreat Centre where she regularly leads retreats.
