Two Day Retreats with Maitripala 
Saturday and Sunday
11th and 12th February
10am – 3pm

96 Halifax St, Adelaide

It is easy to feel overwhelmed by what is happening all around the world on any parameter you dare to think of – politics, environment, economics, gender, race, class and so it goes on and on. How can we best live a Dharma life in the midst of so much turmoil, conflict and suffering?

Join us for this weekend of exploring the teachings, to find out more about yourself and your relationship to unsatisfactoriness and compassion. Metta is a necessary first ingredient for effectively connecting with compassion. Maitripala will lead us through experiential learning that has enabled her to undertake the Buddhas-in-my-Pocket pilgrimage this past year and will enable us to go deeper in ourselves and with others.

The content of these two day retreat/workshops flows on one from the other, but each day can also be meaningfully participated in, without attending the other day.

Dana contribution for each day is $50, or $80 for both days.

Booking essential, via email 
or phone Dharmamodini 0439 839 785

triratna-fringe-poster-med-resCome and be gently led through a mindfulness and a cultivation of loving-kindness practice by ordained members of Adelaide’s Triratna Buddhist Community. No experience is necessary.

Mindfulness is a mental state cultivated by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations.  It has been a main focus of Buddhist practice for 2,500 years and has recently been more widely adopted as a technique for reducing stress and anxiety and improving focus and clarity of mind.

In the loving-kindness practice we are working with our emotions, learning to enter more fully into positive and enjoyable mental states as well as cultivating a more kindly attitude towards others, which in turn enables us to live more harmoniously with those around us.

There is no fee for these one hour events, but donations are welcome.
