Pure Mind, Pure Happiness
30 May – 4 June 2019
Post Spring Festival Retreat 2019
guided Silent Retreat with guest teacher Kadam Bridget Heyes
Teachings in English with German translation
We all have the seeds of negativity in our mind which are the principal cause of all our mental and physical problems. Empowering ourselves with this Buddhist wisdom of understanding karma or ‘action’, we can engage in simple and special meditation practices. These meditations have the power to clear this burden of negativity from our mind therefore healing our life and creating pure and happy experiences now and in the future for both ourselves and others. By practicing the meditation and recitation of Vajrasattva we can completely cleanse our mind, free our self from limiting negative habits and realise our own pure inner potential. In this guided retreat Kadam Bridget Heyes will lead us through all the essential practices presented during the UK International Spring Festival 2019.
This retreat is perfect for those who are new to purification practice as well as more experienced practitioners. It is beneficial but not necessary to have attended the UK Festival to enjoy this special retreat.

Revered for the clarity of her teachings, she presents profound ideas in a popular way that are immediately accessible and easy to practice and integrate into daily life. As a working mother of two, she exemplifies special insight into how to bring Buddhism alive to meet the demands of a busy modern life. Kadam Bridget is a genuinely inspiring example for everyone on the spiritual path.
“Through receiving the powerful blessings of Buddha Vajrasattva continually we can completely purify and transform our mind. All impure appearances, impure environments, and impure enjoyments of body and mind will cease for us and we will experience everything as pure. We will become a completely pure being.’
