      The Stages of the Path to Enlightenment

     Thursday January 14th– Monday January 18th

This retreat is the perfect opportunity to develop your meditation practice and learn more about Buddhism. It would be an excellent precursor to joining the Buddhist class.


Kadam Lamrim is the scientific method to improve our human nature and qualities. These instructions, also called The Stages of the Path to Enlightenment, are very practical and easy to practise in our daily lives. Lamrim makes our lives happy and meaningful, helps us to solve our human problems, and ultimately to find pure and everlasting happiness.


Gen Kelsang Dema will guide each session which will include prayers, a teaching, and a meditation based on the new meditations in Geshe-la’s recent book “How to Understand the Mind.” The sessions will be suitable for both beginners and those familiar with Lamrim.


Comments from previous retreats at Chenrezig:

Demas' guiding in such a peaceful place helps to improve my concentration when meditating & I am able to get the essence of the meditations.

This retreat has come at just the right time for me.  My cloudy busy agitated mind that couldn't concentrate on anything has been replaced by a positive delighted mind that feels like anything and everything is possible.

Between the sessions everyone was so friendly & helpful. It really helped me to feel part of the Chenrezig community. I was able to drop-in whenever I was free.

Retreat sessions are open to all - please drop in to any session. It is not necessary to attend all the sessions. No need to book, just turn up, relax and enjoy.
