LETTING GO OF THE PAST

A guided Meditation Retreat with Gen Kelsang Chö

We often have trouble letting go of painful events in our past and this affects the way we respond to our current life situations. We blame situations, ourselves or others and remain trapped in a state of anger and hurt. Through training in mindfulness and meditation we can illuminate the real source of pain and difficulty within our minds and finally release it completely, leaving us with a tremendous feeling of relief and joy.

Learn practical methods to let go of the past through a retreat at Kailash with Gen Kelsang Chö from 12 – 15 September, 2019.

Everyone is welcome!

          Teacher

Gen Kelsang Chö is the resident teacher at Kadampa Meditation Centre Rome, Italy.

He is an English Buddhist monk who has practiced under the guidance of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso for 19 years. His qualities of clarity and loving kindness are an inspiration for everyone.

Silence during the retreat

During the retreat, we will try to observe silence until lunchtime. Being in silence allows the mind to settle and find peace. In this way you will be able to concentrate better during meditation and to leave all the stress and busyness that we are normally immersed in behind. In the afternoon and evening retreaters are encouraged to discuss their experience of the meditation and teachings, so they can help each other to overcome obstacles and gain deeper experience.


Language and Translation

This course will be held in English and translated into Italian. Please get in touch with us if you need any translation and we try to help.

Volunteering

Kailash IRC is a charity and the Retreat Centre is run by a few volunteers. It is also fun to connect with fellow retreaters while helping out with small tasks. For this reason 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.
