Meditation Retreats

You can do meditation retreats in the town – there’s no need to disappear to a cave! For those interested in deepening their meditation experience, the Centre offers regular one-day urban retreats. Retreats are designed to help us focus exclusively on a particular meditation practice without the normal distractions of everyday life. You are welcome to come to all the sessions or however many you can make.

Purifying Our Past Mistakes

Sun 15th Dec

The purpose of this retreat is to purify negative karma and obstacles to our spiritual development by reciting the mantra of Buddha Vajrasattva. By engaging in this practice in conjunction with the four opponent powers, we can purify all our negative karma and become a pure being with a pure mind for the benefit of others.

This retreat will be partially guided by Kelsang Chogma.
