New Year New You Guided Meditation Retreat

Date: 5th – 11th January 2019


The Buddhist approach for creating deep and lasting change

This is a guided meditation retreat. You can attend the whole course or just come along to any session. No booking is required.

We all wish to change and aspire to be a better person. When it comes to change, the Buddhist point of view is incredibly optimistic. The profound tools of transformation within Buddhist meditation gives us the ability to become the person we wish to be: peaceful, kinder, more dynamic and confident, happier, more loving. We will discover through meditation that positive change, and even profound change, is in our very nature and that we can absolutely direct ourselves towards becoming the person we wish to be.

In this retreat, through teachings, prayers and guided meditation, Kelsang Luma will introduce us to Buddhist meditation and show how we use it to connect to profound dimensions within our mind.  Through these skillful and creative methods we initiate the change we all long for.

This fully guided retreat will be held at the Centre and is suitable for beginners and advanced. Everybody is welcome

You can attend the whole course or just come along to any session. No booking is required. There is no physical exercise involved and you can choose to sit either in a chair or on a cushion.
