Amitayus Retreat

Friday 23rd - Sunday 25th February 2024

Amitayus is the Buddha of long life, merit and wisdom – the main qualities we need for the happiness of enlightenment. Spending a couple of days in retreat on Amitayus at the start of the year is considered very auspicious for what the whole of the rest of the year will bring.
