Learn simple methods to increase your happiness and solve your problems. No need to book, just turn up, relax and enjoy.


We all want to get rid of our suffering and problems, and experience more happiness and peace. One of the most powerful methods to achieve this is meditation and recitation of Vajrasattva, the Buddha of purification.

On this retreat, Gen Kelsang Dema will explain how we can use this practice to remove from our mind the negativities and obstacles, which are the source of our suffering, and ripen our potential to have a happier more peaceful mind.

Each session includes a short teaching, guided prayers & a
period of mantra recitation in silence, & meditation.

Retreat sessions:

Cost: £3/session, £5/half-day, £10/day
£18 for whole retreat Free to Facility Fee payers
Soup & roll available 1-2pm if booked in advance by email
