Weekend Course GESHE TENZIN ZOPA Establishing a Tantric Practice

Open to anyone and everyone! Buddhist tantra is rich in symbolism, and unique to Tibetan Buddhism. Discover how it differs from Hindu Tantra, and the unique features of this lightening fast approach to enlightenment. Find out about the four different categories of Buddhist Tantra, who can practice them, and where the practices we are most familiar with, like Chenrezig and Manjushri, fit in.

Drop-in Meditation & Chai

We have a new format this year! Spend a relaxed morning enjoying two guided meditations to relax and revive! The first is a short mindfulness and breathing meditation, including settling the posture. After a short break enjoy the main meditation of guided visualisation and chanting purification with the Buddha. Join us for chai tea together in reception afterwards.

Sitting with the Buddha

These meditations connect us with our own ‘buddha nature’, our innate pure and blissful mind, and help remove the negative states of mind that destroy our peace and happiness. Learn to utilise the natural creativity of the mind to train in positive habits and attitudes.
