22nd – 26th JanPreviously advertised to be in Rosnowlagh we’ve now changed our retreat location for this one to the wonderful Gyreum Ecolodge in beautiful Sligo.
We’ll provide you with a unique experience to set you up for the year ahead. Buddhist Meditation guided by Buddhist Nun and Resident Teacher of Potala KBC in Belfast Kelsang Chitta and a quiet beautiful place to relax and recharge.
The retreat will begin on friday night with supper and an introduction to the retreat and some guided relaxation meditation. Then each day will entail 4 one hour guided meditation and teaching sessions, one before breakfast, one before lunch, one before supper and one before bedtime. The rest of your time is your own to relax, read, rest or walk in the peaceful surrounding area.
Sessions on the first day will focus on the foundations of the buddhist way of life, day two will deepen our experience of buddhist meditations on loving kindness and acceptance and third day and last morning will focus on compassion and buddhist view of reality, ultimate truth – emptiness.
On saturday we’ll keep silence until lunch, on sunday until supper, and on monday we’ll have a full day of silence. This gives us time to really relax and focus inwards, to reduce distraction and improve our meditations.
Good wholesome vege food will be provided and is included in the cost which we try to keep as reasonable as we can.
