13th – 20th October 2017
with Kadam Morten Clausen, Eastern US NSD and Resident Teacher of KMC New York City
This retreat will provide the perfect opportunity to take the teachings from NKT-IKBU Fall Festival 2017 deep into our heart in the peaceful and relaxed environment of Kailash IRC. By strengthening our connection with Buddha Avalokiteshvara we will be able to magnify our experience of the powerful mind of limitless love.
Kadam Morten Clausen is the Eastern US National Spiritual Director of the New Kadampa Tradition & Resident Teacher at the KMC New York City, and Bodh Gaya Center in Bayside, Queens. For over 30 years he has been a close disciple of Ven. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. Kadam Morten is greatly admired as a meditation teacher and is especially known for his clarity, humor and inspirational presentation of Dharma. His teachings are always practical and easy to apply to everyday life. Through his gentle and joyful approach and his peaceful example, he has helped many people find true happiness in their hearts.
The retreat starts on the first day with supper at 6pm followed by the introduction at 8.15pm and finishes on the last day with lunch. There will be several meditation and teaching sessions every day as well as a session with chanted prayers. At break times each participant helps with small jobs and there is also plenty of time to go for walks in the beautiful surroundings of Kailash IRC.
All participants observe silence in the morning until lunchtime. The library and meditation room are silent zones all day.
The course will be held in English, please contact us if you need translation.
Kailash IRC is a non-profit charity and the Retreat Centre, B&B and courses are all run by a few volunteers. Therefore it is common practice during an event at Kailash IRC that every participant helps with some jobs (e.g. chopping vegetables, washing dishes, tidying up etc.) and the final cleaning at the end of the course.
