About the Course

Mindfulness, Meditation & Mahamudra
Discovering the peace and clarity within

Teachings and Silent Meditation Retreat with Gen Kelsang Tonglam
August – September 2018

This 4-week meditation course includes 3 weekly teachings followed by a silent meditation retreat. It will take you on an inner journey into the clear and limitless nature of your own mind and help you to experience the peace and clarity within.

Mahamudra is the heart practice of Kadampa Buddhism. A great favourite among practitioners; deeply relaxing and profoundly illuminating meditations that will empower your ability to meditate and help maintain a happy and peaceful mind in your daily life.

Gen Tonglam will explain and guide simple, yet profound meditations that begin to open up a whole new inner world to gain deep insight and ability to understand and control your mind.

You can choose to attend Part 1 only, but to reap the most benefits, we recommend you to attend both Part 1 and Part 2. The retreat is suitable for those new to meditation as well as experienced practitioners.
