You are invited to join an urban retreat we will be hosting from Saturday 9th to Saturday 16th November. The “urban retreat” is a week of online talks, teachings, guided meditations, and other resources, delivered to your inbox every day by email. And it’s all free!
The theme will be: “Blazing Like the Sun” and we’ll explore how our hearts can be more overflowing with kindness, compassion, confidence, and love of life. We’ll explore how to find the “freedom of heart” that is loving-kindness.
