This year is flying by, and in less than two weeks I plan to be in retreat at the Forest Refuge for the whole month of May. So I wanted to take the opportunity now to remind NZ friends that there are still some places available for the 14-16 June weekend retreat at Bella Rakha in Oratia.
Looking further ahead, the 16-18 August metta weekend and Greg Scharf’s two-week retreat at BMIMC in New South Wales, Australia, are both close to being full already – so if you are interested in those two, please register soon. For more information, please see the “Upcoming retreats and courses” page.
While in New Zealand in June and July, I hope to be able to offer two six-week study and practice groups exploring the brahma-vihara practices and the Four Foundations of Mindfulness in more depth. These groups would meet for two hours each week somewhere in inner city Auckland (venue to be decided.) If you are interested in being involved in one or both of these groups, please let me know. More details to follow.
Wishing you all a peaceful autumn, and I hope to practice with you again this winter.
