The way we relate to our self affects every area of our life. The ability to be happy with who we are, regardless of personal challenges and what others think of us is essential.

Buddha explained the art of self-acceptance and taught many
techniques for developing happiness and a positive self view.

On this meditation day course with Gen Kelsang Dornying learn and practice these techniques
for yourself and quickly enjoy confidence, happiness and stable
self esteem.

Open to meditators of all levels, including beginners. Everybody welcome.

Special Event | Nyungnay Retreat

A purifying ritual practice | 17-18 April | In-person and online

This special fasting and purification retreat is performed in conjunction with the meditation practise of Thousand-armed Avalokiteshvara. Engaging in this retreat is very powerful for purifying negative karma and pacifying strong delusions such as desirous attachment and hatred. It is also a special method for receiving the blessings of Buddha and improving our love, compassion and bodhichitta (the wish to attain enlightenment for the benefit of all).

Usually this practise is done over two days, with the Mahayana precepts* being taken at the beginning of each day. On the first day it is customary to abstain from all meals apart from lunch. On the second day we engage in a complete fast, abstaining from all food and drink for 24 hours. On both days, we do three sessions of meditation, combining prostrations with chanted meditation. Those who are unable to engage in a complete fast can participate in the sessions on the second day, provided they take the Mahayana precepts on that day. Each session is free of charge. (If you wish to join us for lunch on Saturday the fee is $7)

*The Mahayana precepts are vows we take to abstain from certain actions for the duration of 24 hours. For more information about precepts please refer to our website or ask your class teacher.
