Course outline

THIS COURSE IS FULLY-BOOKED.

For centuries Tibetans have used a series of fifty-nine slogans as a skillfull method for training the mind and cultivating limitless compassion. 

Based on the text The Great Path of Awakening, which contains clear, precise instructions, Lama Zangmo will give instructions with emphasis on using the practice to meet ordinary life situations with understanding and loving kindness.

Each day will start with a meditation session before breakfast, with the main part of the day consisting of meditation sessions and breaks and a teaching session in the morning and in the afternoon.

The meditation sessions may include some walking meditation depending on the weather.

A longer break after lunch will give time for walks on the island, private practice, reading or resting. 

This is primarily a meditation retreat suited for those already familiar with meditation, it is not for complete beginners. 

Please note: Part of the retreat will be held in silence. Participants are required to attend all the daily sessions, except in case of illness. Mobile phones are required to be turned off and not in use.

A detailed programme will be available nearer the time. It will include an hour after breakfast each day working with the resident volunteer community, helping with kitchen, housecare and garden tasks. 

THE RETREAT BEGINS WITH SUPPER AND A FIRST SESSION IN THE EVENING OF THE 10TH AND DEPARTURE IS AFTER BREAKFAST ON THE 17TH
