Free your Mind. Free the World.

Saturday, July 10th @ 10:00 am 4:00 pm

A day-retreat for under 30s

Free your mind. Free the world. Learn to sail the Worldy Winds.

We are all blown about by the challenges of our own lives and catastrophic events across the globe. The Buddha’s teaching can help us transform our thinking and actions to have a positive impact on ourselves, on our community and on the entire planet.

Join Aksayadhi and Buddhasiha for a day retreat on the Worldly Winds for under 30s.

This retreat is suitable for complete beginners who have no experience of meditation or Buddhism, but those who do have experience, are also very welcome.

There will be personal talks from Aksayadhi and Buddhasiha, group discussions and meditation instruction.


The day is in two parts with a delicious free lunch for those who book for both.

Morning 10:00am – 12:30pm

Worldly Wind 1: Gain and Loss
“Freedom from the binds of modern life – How Buddhism can help liberate us in our everyday lives”
Worldly Wind 2: Fame and Infamy
“Please ‘Like’ me – physical appearance, image and my social media profile”

Afternoon 1:30pm – 4:00pm

Worldly Wind 3: Praise and Blame
“No matter whether they love me or hate me – Going way beyond approval”
Worldly Wind 4: Pleasure and Pain
“Just one more promotion – then I’ll be happy. Navigating career highs and lows in a competitive working culture”
