Post-Spring Festival Retreat:

Meditations that make us strong

  29 May  – 3 June, 2020

Practical meditations from the tradition of Kadam Lamrim that are powerful, simple and life-changing.

They can be practiced by anyone and give us a good foundation for finding peace, strength and happiness in our normal, stressful everyday life. This retreat is perfect for anyone who wants to deepen practical experience in essential meditations from Buddhist meditation.
