Commonsense Retreat by Tarchin Hearn

We are pleased to announce the availability of a free PDF, e-book version of Tarchin’s recently revised ‘Commonsense Retreat’

‘Commonsense Retreat’ is a small booklet introducing some broadly practical considerations that will help support a solitary retreat.  It was originally written in 1984 to help introduce people to the use of retreat huts at the Wangapeka Study and Retreat Centre in N.Z.  Though based on general Buddhist principles, it will speak to people from a wide range of traditions and backgrounds.  It touches on themes such as one’s motivation for retreating, basic preparation, the environment or place for retreat, physical health, diet, basic mindfulness practice, and how to smoothly emerge from retreat.

Click the link to download the entire 10 page booklet, Commonsense Retreat PDF or, visit Green Dharma Treasury and go to the section, Writings/E-Books.
