People of Colour Weekend Retreat: The Truth of Love Friday

10th July – Sun 12th

We’re delighted to invite you to The Truth of Love – a weekend retreat starting this coming Friday 9th.  Through talks, meditation and discussion, Manjusiha and I will be exploring how loving-kindness can be a powerful force for our personal lives, our communities and the world. For the first time, we will also be having one session for affinity groups. We recognise that while we share so much in common as people of colour there is of course diversity among us. So it feels important to have a space where we can share any specific conditioning or experience, whether that be gender, sexual orientation, cultural backgrounds etc. I will say more about this on Friday evening at the retreat orientation which starts at 7pm.

So do join us, especially if you haven’t yet joined any of our activities. We will be teaching meditation from scratch at 8am Saturday and Sunday so this is a perfect time to jump in.
