Training in Meditation
Guided meditations on the Stages of the Path based on New Meditation Handbook..
The Stages of the Path, or “Lamrim” in Tibetan, is a powerful series of contemplative meditations that help us swiftly understand and gain experience of the whole Buddhist path to enlightenment. Beginning with developing an appreciation for the incredible spiritual opportunity this human life affords us, through a recognition of our both our mortality and future lives, the possibility of permanent liberation from suffering, universal love and compassion, and finally direct insight into the ultimate nature of reality.
Kadam Mike will introduce and guide each meditation session. To obtain full benefit from the retreat it is best to attend all sessions, but if this is not possible you can attend any sessions you are able to on a drop-in basis.
The retreat is suitable for all levels from complete beginners to experienced meditators.
A perfect way to start the year!
