SUMMER RETREAT 2019
WITH GEN KELSANG DEVI
TAMING THE WILD ELEPHANT MIND
Enter into the Pure Land of Lamrim
In this retreat we will have the opportunity to use Buddhas teachings on Lamrim to practically solve our human problems through meditation.
This magical mystery tour of the mind will make our lives truly meaningful.
Gen Kelsang Devi is a senior teacher of the New Kadampa Tradition having studied and practiced Kadampa Buddhism for almost 20 years under the guidance of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.
During this time Gen Devi has engaged in extensive silent meditation retreat and has also taught and skilfully guided numerous group retreats ranging from a few days to three months both at Tharpaland IRC and internationally. These are very popular with students from all over the world as well as with the local community, and her regular classes, programmes and courses are greatly enjoyed by all.
Each retreat week starts on the first day with supper at 6 pm followed by the introduction at 8.15 pm 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 longer stays have priority.

Week 2: Friday July 12 – Thursday July 18
Week 3: Friday July 19 – Thursday July 25
Detailed information about the topic and timetable of each week of the retreat will follow soon.
