6pm Thurs 29th November – 2pm Sun December | with Gen Kelsang Chitta | at Lorne House and Estate, Cultra, Co.Down

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 the Lorne Estate, with woodlands and ocean right on your doorstep.

The retreat will guide us through the ancient Buddhist Loving Kindness meditation to allow us to gradually develop the quality of ‘loving-acceptance’.

Sessions are a little over an hour and consist of guided meditations and talks with Gen Kelsang Chitta.

Loving Kindness is a key practice of Kadampa Buddhism. You’ll be guided in deeply relaxing and profoundly illuminating meditations that act as a way of healing the troubled mind to free it from its pain and confusion.

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

Accommodation is 4 star and food is vegetarian. Vegan lifestyle meals can be accommodated.

It is possible to attend just the sessions if you don’t wish to avail of the accommodation.
