Wake up to the preciousness of every moment of our lives
Weekend retreat with Gen Kelsang Khandro
This short but effective retreat will be guided by Gen Kelsang Khandro, Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Centre Basel. Each session will include brief commentary and guided meditations, with enough time and silence for everyone to explore the contemplations and meditations on their own. During the breaks, enjoy the tranquility of the surrounding landscape and speak to like-minded people who have come together for this weekend retreat.
Through contemplation and meditation on our own impermanence we will learn to cherish and value each and every moment of our present life and naturally be inspired to use it in a meaningful way.
Please note that each retreater will help with a merit job in order to ensure the smooth running of the retreat. Thank you.
