Advanced Retreats

The following group retreats can be attended for just a day, the weekend or the whole week and are an ideal next step after attending a beginner’s weekend and drop-in classes. Meditating and praying in a group is very powerful and creates a very positive energy.

These group retreats are ideal for those with some experience of meditation and/or Buddhist practices who wish to gain a deeper level of practice. If you are unable to attend any guided sessions and are unfamiliar with the practices then please contact epc@madhyamaka.org before booking one of these retreats.

It was compiled by the great Indian Buddhist Master Atisha, who was invited to Tibet by King Jangchub Ö in AD 1042, and who spent the rest of his life there spreading pure Dharma.
