Urban RetreatSaturday 21st – Saturday 28th November
Living in the Greater Mandala is the theme of this retreat, taking place in your home, in your country, indeed anywhere in the world you may be!

The emphasis of an urban retreat is encouraging and supporting people to bring the Dharma into their daily living, relating the teachings to their everyday experience. In addition to this, it is also designed to enable people to experience themselves as part of the world-wide sangha that is Triratna.

This event is managed by the Triratna Development Team in Europe and is run online at thebuddhistcentre.com, our worldwide community across planet earth.

To take part in this retreat with the Adelaide sangha, you need to commit to coming along to two workshops on consecutive Saturdays, 21st and 28th November, from 10am – 4pm.
You also need to be committed to engaging daily through that week with whatever you have chosen for yourself as aspirations and keeping connected with other retreatants for mutual support and encouragement.

More details will follow on the program and the theme, but for now it can be summed up in a quote from Sangharakshita “The aim..is to bring an attitude of pure aesthetic appreciation to whatever circumstances that come our way.”

If you have questions or want to discuss any aspects of the retreat, you can phone Dharmamodini 0439 839 785 or Saddhavijaya 0406 070 532

Please let us know asap if you are thinking of and/or going to take part in this inspiring and delightful sharing in spiritual friendship.
Participation is on the basis of dana contribution.

Urban RetreatParami, an international Order convenor, has travelled from the UK to support Triratna sanghas in Australia. She is visiting us in Adelaide and will be delivering the introductory talk for this year’s international urban retreat Living in the Greater Mandala. This will be recorded for launching the retreat worldwide on 21st November.

This will be a unique night for Adelaide Trirtatna. Please join us for a true gem of a talk by a true gem of an individual. Come and hear what Parami has to say about learning to live less from a driven and speedy state of being and more from an expansive, non-utilitarian and beautiful way of being.

All welcome – see you there, 96 Halifax St, starting at 6.45pm with meditation (the Drop-In meditation is also available), followed by a cuppa and then the talk.
