About the Course

Post Summer Festival Retreat with Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Tonglam

Follow the Advice from Atisha’s Heart and Emulate his Example of Purity and Sincerity

In this retreat, we will review and deepen the essential teachings of the Advice from Atisha’s Heart given in the Summer Festival.  This sublime advice encapsulates the way of life of the early Kadampa practitioners, whose example of purity and sincerity we should all try to emulate. This heartfelt and practical guidance helps us transform our ordinary daily life into a joyful path to deep inner peace for our own and others’ benefit.

This retreat is open to everyone, whether you have attended Summer Festival or not. Everybody welcome.
