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 email@example.com before booking one of these retreats.
To book a place on any of these group retreats, or for more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Weekend course followed by a week long Refuge Retreat
Refuge is seeking protection from the stress and strains of daily life. By practising Buddha’s teachings, through contemplation and meditation, we can develop deeply peaceful minds. This guards us from imbalanced thoughts and actions which might bring harm to ourselves and others, the consequences of which can be far reaching.
In this way we gain a real place of refuge in our heart, by relying on Buddha, relying on his teachings, and relying on Sangha, our spiritual friends. This is the gateway to Buddhist practice.
Gen Kelsang Rigma is the Resident Teacher of Khedrubje Kadampa Buddhist Centre in Hull. Teaching and practising Kadampa Buddhism for over 30 years, Gen Rigma is valued in her formal capacity as a teacher, and also as a spiritual friend. She brings a wealth of experience to her teachings; we are very fortunate to have her teaching this weekend course.
