The Joy of Kadampa Life

with Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Chokyan

In this weekend retreat, Gen Chokyan will review and guide meditations based on the teachings from the NKT-IKBU International Festival held at Manjushri KMC, UK.

The two topics that will be covered are “The Buddhist Way of Loving Kindness” and “Essential Advice from the Heart”.

This is a great opportunity to take these practices deeper into the heart for those who attended the Festival. Or a chance to receive the teachings for those unable to attend.

Private, shared, and dorm accommodations are available on site for an additional cost. For more information, contact [email protected].
