Middle Way Education (MWE) is a not-for-profit organization established in 2017, guided by the vision of Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche and other masters from various Buddhist traditions. Our mission is to build a comprehensive model for Buddhist education, creating pathways for traditional Buddhist wisdom and knowledge to enhance modern education for the benefit of this and future generations.
Running over a weekend – Friday evening to Sunday afternoon, this retreat is open to those aged between 13 and 19 years old. It is an opportunity for teenagers to sample a more formal retreat setting with an invitation to silence, guided mediation, walking meditation, reflection and discussions. The setting within a monastery is also an opportunity to get a taste of life in a contemplative community.
The retreat starts at 5 pm on Friday and finishes at 4.00 pm on Sunday. Accommodation is provided in the retreat centre. Participants will be in the male or female dormitories unless there is a very specific need for a single room. There are three meals a day and all food is vegetarian.
