Theme: Bardo ‘we are such stuff’

“We are such stuff

As dreams are made on, and our little life

Is rounded with a sleep.”

Shakespeare: The Tempest iv.i.

I haven’t written anything very extensive as theme. I tried a few but felt they were too wordy. Maybe the less said the better. I’ll talk mainly in the context of bardo teachings. I think this will do as a notice – Dónal.

Dónal has kindly offered to run a virtual retreat for the Southern Africa Centres from 12 – 20 March 2021. Participants will need to register to obtain the link.

Participants will join via ZOOM

Bookings open 1 Feb 2021

Although we will all be attending remotely, we will need to keep in mind that we are essentially on a retreat, and should thus conduct ourselves accordingly (even if we are attending from our homes).

We are all encouraged to offer Dana to Dónal for this retreat, in response to him giving generously of his time for us. This gesture will offer us an opportunity to practice generosity. (You will be advised as to how the payment may be made).

About Dónal Creedon

Dónal Creedon is a Buddhist meditation teacher with many years’ experience, loved and deeply appreciated for his warmth, openness and sincerity. He studied and practiced with Buddhist masters of the Kagyu practice lineage in Europe as well as in India and Nepal. This involved many years of intense retreat. Dónal also spent a number of years at the Krishnamurti Centre in Varanasi as resident Buddhist scholar. Thus the radical inquiry of Krishnamurti informs his approach.
