Buddhism for the Modern World – An International Festival of Meditation, Teachings and Empowerments

Enjoy a summer holiday with a difference. Spend some inspiring time in the English Lake District with people from all over the world developing inner peace through the practices of modern Buddhism.

Week 1 ~ July 26 – 31
Kadam Lamrim:
Essential Buddhist Practices for Daily Life
with Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong

Week 2 ~ August 1 – 10
Highest Yoga Tantra:
A Special Method to Purify our World
with Gen-la Kelsang Kunsang

Come away refreshed, invigorated and inspired – equipped with the essential tools to transform your everyday life into a meaningful spiritual path that brings immense benefit to both yourself and those with whom you live and work.

You can attend either week of the Festival or both together – or come for just a few days. Both weeks are open to everyone and suitable for all levels. If you have not been to a Summer Festival before, Week 1 might be a good place to start.
