Working with Nature Retreat - An opportunity to engage with the beautiful bushland at Vijayaloka, on the outskirts of Sydney. We will practice as well as enhance and help care for the retreat centre.

International Urban Retreat - This biannual event is held simultaneously at Triratna centres worldwide. It explores practice in the context of everyday activity, and it is therefore held in the urban environment of our Buddhist Centre in Newtown. Starting with two half-day retreats (Sat/Sun), ending with a Friday evening get-together and carried out through online talks, home practice and staying in touch with other participants during your 'ordinary' week.

Sangha Retreat - Join the folk from the Coogee Meditation Group for a retreat open to all. Led by Padmadakini and Dharmalata

Introduction to Meditation Retreat - Learn to meditate in supportive retreat conditions. For absolute beginners and those wanting to brush up.

Entering the Middle Way: a new year retreat - An opportunity to take stock of the year and spend a week in a beautiful place. Vajradaka, a visiting Triratna Buddhist Order member who spent 21 years living and teaching at Vajraloka Retreat Centre in Wales, will explore an experiential approach to practising the Middle Way. There is an option for coming the first 3 days.
