You may have seen in the program for the retreat that as well as hosting the retreat materials here, we’ll also be doing some online-only events designed to help bring awareness of the practice into that aspect of our daily lives. We can easily spend so much time online - it’s a challenge to find mindful ways to engage amid so much distraction! And, of course, not everyone is near a Buddhist Centre… So we’re interested in new ways to have a taste of what sangha means and we’d also like to develop resources that can help anyone bring more self-awareness (and, in that sense, more self metta!) into their web use…
Submit questions any time during the retreat for Vessantara by posting here or on Twitter(@buddhistcentre) using the hashtag #urbanretreat. Questions will be answered on the site and on Twitter on Wednesday and Friday (13th/15th).
Follow us on Instagram (@buddhistcenter) - we’ll make an Instagram feed of pictures you pictures [at] thebuddhistcentre.com (send us) or post to this space of your Urban Retreat shrine/Buddha statue. (Unless you ask us not to!)
With apologies to those in the southern hemisphere who, we hope, will be sleeping soundly when some of these events are happening. We’ll be bearing you in mind though… See you online!
