Post Summer Festival Retreat blessings in Spain

KMC Malaga, IKRC Menorca, KMC Barcelona and KMC Madrid have all hosted retreats following the Summer Festival. See the galleries to visit Spanish post-festival week.

KMC Spain

an unforgettable post summer retreat with Kadam Morten at KMC Spain


At KMC Spain we had the good fortune to have a guided post-festival retreat with Kadam Morten. He inspired us with sublime guidance encouraging us to enjoy the beautiful practice of The Yoga of Buddha Heruka.

People came from all over the world (Spain, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Finland, Albania, Israel, the United States, Mexico, New Zealand and South Africa), shared, contemplated, meditated and delighted in the teachings of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

IKRC Menorca



"Kelsang Ganden visited the International Kadampa Retreat Centre Menorca to transmit the teachings of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche on the Lamrim of the Sutra.

His explanations were simple and approachable, creating an atmosphere of affection and friendship during the retreat. In all the sessions, his depth of Dharma moved our minds, presenting the object of meditation clearly. Thank you for the journey to the Pure Land."

KMC Barcelona

Summer post Festival in KMC BARCELONA with Gen-la Kelsang Kunsang


Our annual Post Summer Festival Retreat 2023 has come to a close. A unique opportunity that our dear Gen-la Kunsang has made us value deeply.

During this beautiful retreat held at the KMC Barcelona, near the stunning mountains of Montserrat, we explored the entire path to enlightenment — from recognizing the preciousness of our human life to the two stages of tantric practice.

The meditation room was filled with people who delighted in listening, contemplating, and meditating on the precious Dharma of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. Sangha from Mexico, Brazil, France, Spain, Canada, and the United States came together, united by the vision of our Spiritual Guide.

Our heartfelt gratitude goes to Gen-la Kelsang Kunsang for her extraordinary generosity. 🧡

KMC Madrid

The Vajrayogini Body Mandala with Gen Kelsang Chokga

"The KMC Madrid center has hosted a beautiful Post Summer Festival with Spain's National Spiritual Director, Gen Kelsang Chokga. This retreat brought together many Spanish-speaking students from both sides of the Atlantic and has been an incredibly special experience.

The Teacher, Gen Chokga, conveyed to us the teachings received during this summer's Festival at Manjushri KMC in a very pure and faithful manner. She ensured that we had the appropriate tools for successful meditation, displaying her well-known warmth and humility. She emphasised the need to stop distractions and fully savour our meditative experience. She helped us understand the profound teaching that the things we normally see do not exist and showed how this understanding forms the basis for meditating on the Vajrayogini Body Mandala.

Throughout the retreat, we repeated Vajrayogini's mantra, carrying it in our hearts continuously  underlining the importance of ALWAYS having our wonderful Spiritual Guide with us, both in formal practice and in our daily lives.
