Rest & Reflect Day Retreats
Madhyamaka Kadampa Buddhist Centre, Pocklington
Saturday 30 October and Sunday 31 October
An unequalled opportunity to get away from stress and busyness and to deepen your experience of meditation. This guided retreat will be held at the beautiful and inspiring Madhyamaka Kadampa Meditation Centre near York.
A retreat gives us the time and space away from our usual activities to gain a deeper and more stable experience of our spiritual practice.
This retreat will explore the development of a Peaceful Mind. It will help to reduce stress and other unpeaceful minds.
The meditations will be guided and the retreat is open and suitable for everyone, regardless of experience. Each meditation session will begin with short prayers, then there will be a talk followed by the guided meditation.
For those not wishing to attend the full Retreat Weekend on a residential basis we are also offering the Saturday and Sunday events as Day Retreats, with lunch included.
