Fri, 15 Nov, 2013 - 14:58Hi everyone, please join us in an hour’s time if you can for the live Facebook group discussion on the topic ‘Metta In The Face Of World Problems’… How does the work of this urban retreat - and of developing loving kindness in our lives - relate (if at all) to the scale of kinds of issues we face today?

Introducing the team for the urban retreat…

Thu, 7 Nov, 2013 - 22:16Hello there, just wanted to introduce the “team” for the urban retreat, but before that here is a couple of responses to questions we’ve had about the event…
