Loving Kindness Meditation Retreat


6pm Friday 22nd February – 2pm Sun 24th February | with Gen Kelsang Chitta | at Corrymeela Ballycastle

Everyone is welcome. The retreat is suitable to those new to meditation as well as experienced practitioners.

A great getaway weekend combining meditation with the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful and peaceful surroundings of Corrymeela Ballycastle, with ocean views in every direction, from a beautiful modern bright space.

The retreat will guide you through the ancient Buddhist Loving Kindness meditations to allow you to gradually deepen the quality of ‘loving-acceptance’. You’ll be guided through these deeply relaxing and profoundly illuminating meditations that are deeply healing.

Each session will be guided by Buddhist Nun and Potala Kadampa Buddhist Centre’s Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Chitta. Chitta has been a student of Buddhist Master Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche for over 15 years and for last 8 years has been teaching and guiding retreats all over Northern Ireland. She is known for her warmth and down to earth approach in sharing these meditations.

There’ll be plenty of time between sessions to read, walk and relax, and the silence in the mornings will allow us the opportunity to reduce distractions and engage more fully with meditation and contemplation.

Accommodation is modern and comfortable, and meals vegetarian. It is possible to attend just the sessions if you don’t wish to avail of the accommodation.
