Means to Accomplishment
A weekend retreat for members of the Triratna Buddhist Order

Sadhana is translated as ‘a means to accomplishment’. What we dedicate ourselves to accomplishing is Awakening, to seeing things as they really are. Our lived reality is that we are practicing somewhere on the scale between ignorance and Awakening. Fortunately we have many practices and methods, suiting many approaches and spiritual temperaments, that point us in that direction On this weekend we’ll use the elements of Sadhana as a framework for practice, discussion and dialogue to gain a deeper understanding of our Dharma life towards the wisdom and compassion of Awakening.

Aryajaya is the current International Order Convenor, taking over from Parami in 2018.  She works with Lokeshvara and the Order Office, as well as Order Convenors world wide, to connect and deepen the Order.  She came to live in the UK from Australia in 2000 to participate in windhorse:evolution in Cambridge and the ordintation process.  Ordained in 2006 she continued to work at Evolution until the closure in 2015.  She enjoyed the challenge of creating an ethical working environment and community in a commercial setting, often with staff that were not Buddhist.  She now lives at Adhisthana and enjoys meditation, the mythic realm, yoga and wild swimming.

* 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.
