Invitation to come on retreat with us
Over the Anzac weekend Coogee Meditation Group is combining with the Sydney Buddhist Centre and a newly formed meditation group in Newcastle for a retreat and you are warmly invited to join us.
One of our Sydney women’s order member chapters is organising it and Padmadakini and I will be co-leading with them.
Here is an information blurb just sent to me by one of them regarding the theme and content of the weekend
‘An opportunity to come together at Vijayaloka as a community of practitioners for the Anzac Day long weekend. Practice Qi Gong, express yourself in our writing workshop, dive into beautiful rituals, and meditate together. Do this (and more!) as we enter the realm of the beautiful red Buddha Amitabha, whose discriminating wisdom transforms hatred and ill-will into compassion and love.’
We will start on the evening of Friday April 22nd and finish mid afternoon on Monday April 25
As meditators who know our two practices (Mindfulness of Breathing and The Metta Bhavana) you will slot into it like a hand into a glove. Our retreat centre is a lovely spot on the banks of the Georges River so it will be wonderful time to chill out, drop into our lived experience and practice amongst like minded friends.
Here’s a link to book on:
If you have any questions regarding it please send me an email.
