Post Summer Festival Retreat
This retreat is on lamrim which means ‘stages of the path to enlightenment’. It is a series of clear, step-by-step meditations that show us how to progress on the spiritual path to enlightenment in a way that is perfectly suited to our modern lives.
The retreat is based on the teachings and meditations given in Week One of the 2023 NKT International Summer Festival in England. You do not need to have attended the Summer Festival in order to attend this retreat; Gen Delek will explain and guide each meditation.
From Tuesday to Friday (Part One of the retreat) we will engage in the first two stages of lamrim: initial and middling scope meditations, on basic Buddhist view, meditation and action.
From Friday afternoon to Sunday (Part Two of the retreat) we will engage in the third stage of lamrim: great scope meditations on the joyful path of a Bodhisattva.
Centre members are welcome to part one, part two, or to the whole retreat.
