10th June – 26th July 2018
with Gen Losang Kelsang

This retreat is designed for those who wish to develop great confidence in their practice of the uncommon Vajrayana Mahamudra meditations of Je Tsongkhapa’s Oral Tradition. The first three weeks will be dedicated to the preparing our minds with the practices of purification, mandala offerings and guru yoga. The next three weeks we will dive into the blissful yogas of the channel, drop and wind. This combination of meditations naturally leads to the deep inner stillness and limitless potential that lies within, just beneath the surface of our mind.

It is possible to attend parts of the retreat on a weekly basis.

It is also possible to include the Post Spring Festival retreat in your stay at a reduced rate.


Each retreat week 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 sessions and one teaching/discussion session every day as well as a session with chanted prayers. During break times each participant helps with small jobs and there is plenty of time to go for walks and discuss the topics with other practitioners.
The retreat can also be attended by the week. Bookings for all three weeks have priority.
Part 1 : 10th June – 29th June 2018 – Preliminaries
Part 2 : 30th June – 26th July 2018 – Actual Mahamudra

During this course all participants observe silence in the morning until lunch. The library and meditation room are silent zones all day.

The course will be held in English, please contact us if you need translation.

Merit jobs:
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.
