This retreat will be guided by Buddhist Nun Gen Kelsang Chitta. Gen Chitta makes these retreats easily accessible for all, guiding meditations that are both relaxing and profound. The talks and practices explained are easy to understand and yet offer extraordinary benefits. Ordained by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche in 2009 she has been teaching meditation throughout NI for 12 years, sharing Dharma with humour and humility. Morning sessions will be guided by Ian McGlade, Resident Teacher of Lamrim Kadampa Buddhist Centre in Derry Londonderry.

This will be a wonderful and extraordinary weekend, located in the beautiful setting of Corrymeela, on the edge of the Atlantic coast. Your meditation room overlooks the Atlantic ocean and Raithlin Island and the occasional passing school of dolphins. There is ample opportunity between sessions to relax and walk, soaking up this ancient and extraordinary landscape.
