Develop your happiness and capacity to help others through these extraordinary 21 meditations

This retreat will guide us through a series of meditations that deeply transform our view of ourself and our world around us. The retreat will help us to develop a sense of purpose and joy as well as helping us to develop a special perspective on life that enables us to let go of stress and deeply relax.

We will be exploring a series of meditations called ‘Lamrim’ or Stages of the Path to Enlightenment. These meditations contain all of Buddha’s teachings but are presented in a way that are very relevant to modern living and easy to put into practice in our busy daily lives.

Everyone is welcome to attend a day or two – or even just a session if that’s all you can manage. The retreat will be suitable for beginners as well as those who wish to deepen their experience.

The weekend will be followed by a further 3 days of retreat sessions which are optional.
