Turn inward your mind and you will find your way” Jetsun Milarepa

We live in an age of many distractions. We tend to look outside for our happiness. This retreat will focus on looking inwards and cultivating a healthy, noble attitude. There will be prayers to the Buddha of compassion at the end of each day and a day of silence on the Wednesday. Practices will include walking meditation, visualisations and self-compassion practices. The aim will be to build inner resilience and courage to face life in an overly complex world.

Entry is available to all but especially as a follow up to weekend and Easter courses at Kagyu Samye Ling.

Bring an open mind!

There is no fee for this course although donations are welcome. Your offering will help with the Monastery's considerable running costs, as well as the expenses incurred in inviting teachers.  Donations may be made in the Reception Office.
