Description

Details

Following on from the International Fall Festival in International Kadampa Retreat Centre Grand Canyon, Arizona, Gen Kelsang Devi will lead this retreat based on the commentary and teachings to the practices ‘The Mirror of Dharma’ book. This is a precious opportunity to engage in qualified retreat and to deepen our understanding and experience of the teachings. An opportunity to progress along the blissful path to enlightenment in the perfect conditions of retreat. Although this retreat is guided as a whole, not every session is guided. Some sessions will be self guided to enable practitioners to deepen their own experience and confidence in meditation.

Programme:
The retreat starts on the first day with supper at 6pm followed by the introduction at 8pm and finishes on the last day with lunch. There will be several meditation and teaching sessions every day as well as a session with chanted prayers. At break times each participant helps with small jobs and there is also plenty of time to go for walks in the beautiful surroundings of Kailash IRC.

Silence:
During the retreat, in the mornings, we 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. During some retreats, depending on the wishes of the retreaters the retreat can be completely silent from a certain point in the retreat.

Language:
The Retreat will be conducted in English and translated into German, please contact us if you need additional translation.

Merit jobs:
Kailash IRC is a non-profit charity and the Retreat Centre, B&B and courses are all run by a few volunteers. Therefore it is common practice during an event at Kailash IRC that 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.

Bookings close:
