retreat materials: Here you can find the daily short talks, the guided meditations, and the mantras that are the core teaching and practice content for this week
latest & updated: All contributions, blogs, posts, comments, updates are listed here in order of posting; most recent posts first
discussion: During the Urban Retreat week, there will be a quote from one or other book (mainly from Maitreyabandhu’s latest book The Journey and The Guide) with a few questions for you to reflect on, with an invitation that you share your thoughts
other resources: Other material, talks, audio recordings that will help your practice during the week
metta wave: On this page you will find information about the Metta Wave meditation - on Saturday 21 November the suggestion is all of us taking part in the Urban Retreat take the time at 4pm local time to send metta, wishes of loving-kindness and goodwill, to beings everywhere. You will also find here photos from Triratna Sanghas around the world - and the invitation is you join is and send us a photo of your Urban Retreat shrine or Buddha figure!
