Time: Various
Cost: £200.00 / £0.00 Conc.
Led by:     Suryamani and an experienced team

Come and join us as we walk the ancient route of the Peddar’s Way taking inspiration for our rituals and meditations from Sangharakshita’s ‘ Wisdom Beyond Words’, poetry and the beauty of nature.

The Buddha’s followers were ‘Yatrikas’, or wanderers and so we will be evoking the way of life of the very earliest Buddhists – but ” upon England’s green and pleasant land.”

Connecting with each other as a journeying Sangha and with the sacred landscape we will walk in silent meditation from the Forest to the Sea.

We will walk at a gentle pace with plenty of breaks, when we can talk if we want.

In the evenings we will pitch camp and enjoy a tasty meal together prepared by our great Sherpa Team, Steve, Liz and Eileen. We will have sitting meditations in the evenings and mornings and also puja and other rituals at various times.

To get the full Yatra Experience we do encourage you to attend for the full week. If you are unable to do the whole week there is the option to come on the first weekend for a Thetford Forest Yatra. This will run from Friday evening until Sunday lunch time at which point you can enjoy a picnic lunch with everyone and celebrate the launch of the Peddars Way Yatra before returning to your starting point at Dower House.
