An “urban retreat” is a week of online talks, teachings, led meditations, and other resources, all designed to help you practice the Buddha’s teachings effectively, as you go about your day.
From Saturday 9th to Saturday 16th November, an urban retreat will be taking place here online, and you are invited to join! The theme will be: “Blazing Like the Sun”: how can our hearts be more overflowing with kindness, compassion, confidence, and love of life? How can we find the “freedom of heart” that is loving-kindness?
Whichever level of experience you are at, each day there will be support here to help you engage with the meditation practice, and to incorporate it into your daily life. We’ll be posting material every day. It will be best to start on the Saturday and follow the retreat each day. But if you can’t do that, just join in when you can.
The Urban Retreat is an activity being run by the Triratna Buddhist Community, of which we’re a part. Participation is entirely free!
Hi! So, the Urban Retreat, how much time is involved or required for each day? I’m sure some of us work…?
I’m sure some of us do :)
You can spend as much or as little time as you have available. I’ll be posting some guided meditations, which will be perhaps 30 long. And there will be a daily article. But there are other options, including meditations that will be posted at thebuddhistcentre.com.
Sounds great! Do we need to sign up?
There’s no need to sign up for Wildmind’s event, but you can sign up at thebuddhistcentre.com.
Can we make a donation?
Yes, indeed. We’ll have another post about the Urban Retreat (probably a few more posts) giving details of the program. It’s free, but donations are welcome, and we’ll make it easy to do.
Thank you, Julia!
I look forward to more information about this Retreat! Thank you.
