Event Dates: January 18, 2019 – January 21, 2019


Join us for our annual gathering and celebration of sangha!

This year’s theme is the True Individual, one of Sangharakshita’s signature teachings. A true individual is someone who has developed a strong self-awareness that doesn’t rely on convention or social identity for a sense of purpose in life. Instead, they’re guided by their relationship with a deeper reality – the way things really are. They confidently stand on their own two feet and at the same time live in harmony with everyone and everything around them. Where there is a gathering of true individuals, a true sangha forms. Can we aspire to create such a thing over this weekend?

This retreat was previously known as the Outlying Sanghas Retreat, for the Portland, Boston, and New York sanghas exclusively. Starting this year, we are opening it up to all sangha members in the Northeast Region, including Aryaloka, Portsmouth, and Lubec, ME. Please come and add your energy to what we hope to make an annual event!

* At Aryaloka, we strive to make our programs available to everyone regardless of their financial circumstances. Our fee structure allows you to pay according to your means. The Sustaining price is for people comfortably paying their rent or mortgage, and who can afford the occasional meal out and movie. The Sustaining price level also helps Aryaloka offer lower prices to those who could otherwise not afford to attend. Any payment above this price is a tax-deductible donation. Mid-Level prices are for those who have a regular income and are paying their mortgage or rent. Prices at this level contribute to the range of Aryaloka’s operating costs. The Base-Level price is for those without an income or with an income low enough that making ends meet is a challenge. Those whose circumstances are not included above can call the office to arrange alternate pricing.

* Retreat participants are asked to work together to prepare and clean up after meals and to help with general cleanup at the end of the retreat.
