Etiquette on Retreat:

Some of the retreat will be conducted in silence.
Smoking is not permitted.

In the Buddhist Tradition there are five precepts that guide conduct during the retreat. We have adopted these precepts for the Mindfulness in Australia Retreat. Participants are requested to observe these five precepts and to take up the practices of:

1. Cultivating kindness and restraining from harmful actions.

2. Cultivating appreciation and generosity with possessions and restraining from taking what is not offered.

3. Cultivating inner joy and contentment and restraining from sexual expression.

4. Cultivating truthful and appropriate communication and restraining from speech that distorts or is damaging.

5. Cultivating clarity and restraining habits that create dullness or heedlessness. (through eg. alcohol or drugs and other stimulants)
