Meditation Practice Retreat

2:30pm 08 October 2024 - 12:00pm 15 October 2024

Cost: £0.00

Venue: Samye Ling

Drupon Khen Rinpoche will lead the retreat which will entail a mix of daily meditation sessions and teaching sessions. 

This year on 8th October it is eleven years since Choje Akong Tulku Rinpoche passed away.  Engaging in this week-long practice and study retreat is good for us and potentially good for others too, and it's a meaningful and auspicious way to commemorate Akong Rinpoche.  

The Retreat will begin at 2pm on 8th October and finish at lunchtime on 15th October.  

All participants must register and must undertake to attend all sessions.  Registration and booking will open in August.

There is no course fee, though donations may be made in the Reception Office.
