1st – 5th June 2017
with Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab, retired General Spiritual Director and Resident Teacher of KMC Toronto.

This retreat will be a special opportunity to strengthen our connection with Buddha Maitreya and enhance our experience of loving kindness. It will be based on the empowerment of Buddha Maitreya and commentaries given during the NKT-IKBU Spring Festival 2017 in the UK.

Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab is the Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Centre Canada and the National Spiritual Director of Canada. A retired General Spiritual Director of the New Kadampa Tradition (NKT-IKBU), he has trained closely with Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche for nearly thirty-five years. Gen-la Khyenrab is an internationally renowned teacher and Buddhist monk who is greatly admired for his powerful teachings as well as his pure example of humility and loving-kindness.

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 conducted 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.
