Sponsoring Retreats

Sponsoring Retreats

As Lama Zopa Rinpoche says…

‘So retreat is the foundation of true development. Without retreat, without being alone, the mind is like muddy water. But the mind in retreat, being alone and free from outside distractions, is like a calm, crystal-clear lake. There is the clarity to help see ourselves more clearly and to see our Buddha nature more easily.’

The Benefits of Sponsoring Retreat

How wonderful to sponsor rare people who have the capacity for solitary retreat by providing them with sustenance and the hermitages suitable for their Dharma training. Meditators work 24 hours a day for all sentient beings; there is no way they can have a normal job. Meditators are the heart of Dharma, they keep the Enlightened Experience alive. Without them, dharma exists only in books and in empty spoken words.

——if WE aspire to do solitary retreat, we can create the cause when we sponsor others who do. Also, Jetsun Milarepa said — meditators and sponsors go to enlightenment together.

——The last of the 10 Endowments of the Perfect Human Rebirth is to live in a land where Dharma practitioners are supported. Supporting meditators in countries actually makes those countries a Central Land, thereby giving humans born in those countries the potential to have a Perfect Human Rebirth…not an ordinary one…How wonderful is that!

Sponsoring Retreats at Braeview

We would very much like to offer Braeview using a generosity model so anyone can come and do retreat in such a powerful place whatever their financial circumstances might be. Those who come will be invited to make a donation to help cover the cost of their visit. However, any shortfall between what they can offer and what it has cost will need to be covered for the place to stay available in the future. Therefore, we must raise the funds ourselves to ensure the monthly costs are met or the model cannot work.

A retreat will cost approximately £500 a month. Making an offering of any size will be an incredibly powerful gift to those who use Braeview while also creating immense merit, a connection to the benefits of solitary retreat and the cause for you to be able to complete one yourself in this or future lives. We would therefore like to invite you to make a donation to this incredible project to help the Brave View spread in the world. Anything you give using the form below will go into a fund specifically for sponsoring retreatants when they use Braeview.
