The Green Heart Total Immersion 2022 - Expressions of Interest

Saturday 7 May 2022 to Saturday 18 June 2022

This event is set up to collect serious expressions of interest at present. Please do this by July 2021 if you wish to be offered a place for this beautiful experience of practice.


Buddhafield is delighted to announce that Paramananda - one of Triratna’s most experienced meditation teachers will be leading a 6 week Total Immersion Meditation Retreat in 2022.


Paramananda writes:

"Our task on this Green Heart retreat is to be called to find our place in this exquisite world, and to find our courage to respond to the call in these critical and turbulent times ... the teaching will be ordinated to opening the heart to the world and one another."


Who is this retreat for?
This retreat will be open to any experienced meditator with at least 3 years' regular meditation practice.


Conditions for Practice
As with all Buddhafield Total Immersion Retreats, we will live and practice as a community in the mythical and alchemical English landscape in solidarity with one another and with nature.
Outside of the teachings we will mainly be in silence. Bodywork, ritual and regular meditation reviews by the teaching team offers further supportive conditions for practice.
Unlike previous month long Buddhafield Total Immersion retreats, there will not be an option for leaving half-way i.e. this will be a closed retreat to support us to individually and collectively deepen.


Living Conditions
We will be living in nature: living lightly, ecologically and with as low a carbon footprint as possible. This will be a camping retreat, bring a tent and camping gear. There will be single sex communal sleeping domes for those who can’t bring their own tent, i.e. if traveling from abroad. Live-in vans will be welcome too.


Food will be vegan, tasty and nourishing. Organic and locally sourced where possible. If you have dietary restrictions and any medical conditions, we will gather this information when you book and pay your deposit.


Confirmation of place and how to book
Once we have gathered expressions of interest, we will let you know that the event is going ahead and invite you back to the website to pay your deposit. 


There will be three levels of suggested Dana/donations to help us cover the costs for running this 6 week retreat
(may change in line with rates of inflation)
£1,350 (Waged)
£1,100 (Low waged)
£850 (Unwaged)


Deposit and Payments
A deposit will be required by January 2022. This deposit will be non-refundable unless for extenuating circumstances.

We ask that the rest of your financial contributions be paid by 30 April 2022 at the latest. This is a week before the retreat starts on 7th May 2022.
