In-Depth Retreats

Retreat provides an opportunity to gain deeper experience of meditation. On retreat we withdraw from our usual routine and structure our time and conditions so that we can get the most out of our meditation.

Manjushri KMC is the perfect place to engage in retreat, and the centre offers a comprehensive programme of group retreats throughout the year. All retreats include some instruction and guidance.

 

Our Annual Retreats:

Kadam Lamrim Retreat

Aug 31 – Sep 7, 2018

Lamrim is a powerful series of practical meditations that lead us along the entire path to enlightenment.

This retreat is suitable for all levels from complete beginners to experienced meditators and all sessions will be guided by Gen Kelsang Chonden.

Vajrasattva Retreat

Sep 15 – 21, 2018

The purpose of this retreat is to purify negative karma and obstacles to our spiritual development by reciting the mantra of Buddha Vajrasattva. By engaging in this practice in conjunction with the four opponent powers, we can purify all our negative karma and become a pure being with a pure mind for the benefit of others.

Refuge Retreat

Mar 8 – 15, 2019

The foundation of the Buddhist way of life is to go for refuge to Buddha, to guide us along the spiritual path to enlightenment; to Dharma, inner spiritual realizations that protect us from our delusions which are the source of all our suffering; and to Sangha, pure spiritual practitioners who inspire us, show a good example and help us along the spiritual path to inner peace. This retreat will deepen our experience of Buddhist refuge which is the foundation of all spiritual realizations.

Nyungnay Purifying Ritual Practice

Apr 13 – 15, 2019

This special fasting and purification practice is performed in conjunction with Eleven-faced Avalokiteshvara. It is very powerful for purifying negative karma of body, speech, and mind, and for pacifying strong delusions such as desirous attachment and hatred. It is also a special method for receiving blessings and improving our experience of love, compassion, and bodhichitta.
