Every year, the monastic community (Monks and nuns) go on a three month retreat called the “Rains Retreat” from mid July to mid October. During this period, they do not visit our centres for teachings as it’s a time for deepening their own practice.
While the monks and nuns are away, we will have some interesting guest speakers coming in to give the Friday Night talk.

Imam Shakeeb: The Importance of Heart in Islam
Imam of the historical Northbridge mosque, the second oldest mosque in Australia, Imam Shekeeb is an engaging and articulate speaker who embraces inclusivity and unity. His session will focus on the importance of the heart in Islam, a topic which seen from a different perspective will no doubt be eye opening.
