2018 Siddhartha's Intent Australia Program

Adelaide Vipashyana Retreat

29 March - 3 April 2018

"We can actually declare that, as non-theistic Buddhists, we can free the whole world from pain. That’s the greatest news. And we are doing it properly, rather than worshipping somebody or going into trance. We are doing it methodically, scientifically, psychologically. Starting with ourselves, we are expanding that news to others in turn. It is very definite and ordinary – and at the same time, it is quite remarkable."

 Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche

The practice of Buddhist meditation allows us to uncover and experience our natural heritage of wisdom though cultivating insight or vipashyana. It is to establish a peaceful space of presence and mindfulness, allowing us to awaken a calmer and wider appreciation of our reality. A retreat is an invaluable moment of clarifying and re-affirming our commitment to the vision and path of meditation. Jakob Leschly will lead the retreat, offering general instruction and individual interviews. The retreat is held under the auspices of Tibetan Buddhist master Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche with Jakob Leschly as one of his resident instructors.
