Retreats in Switzerland, USA & France

Kadampa Centres around the world continue to fulfill Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso's wish for people of the modern world to have access to qualified retreats. Through contemplating and meditating on the meaning of Buddhist teachings, we gain access to deeper states of peace. Retreats at Kailash IRC in Switzerland, KMC Georgia and KMC North Carolina in the US and Lamrim KBC Lyon in France offered space to reflect and develop new, beneficial ways to look at our lives.


Retreat at Kailash IRC, Switzerland

KMC Geneva recently had the incredible opportunity of hosting its annual winter retreat at Kailash IRC. The retreat was partly in silence for one day, which really helped everyone gain more familiarity with the meditations and focus our concentration inwards. Such a blessed weekend!

Joint retreat in USA

KMC Georgia and KMC North Carolina came together to enjoy an away retreat in the mountains of Georgia, in the southeastern US. We had the precious opportunity to meditate on taking and giving during our retreat entitled Healing Our Mind, Healing Our World.

The retreat conditions were perfect - cold and drizzly outside, warm and cozy on the inside. On the morning of the final day, the sun was shining in the sky and in our hearts.

Vajrasattva Purification Retreat in France

In Lyon, France, the Lamrim Kadampa Buddhist Center hosted a purification retreat on the practice of Buddha Vajrasattva. Attendees enjoyed a relaxed sessions, immersing themselves in practical teachings and purifying meditations. It was an enjoyable journey within that left attendees with deeper understanding of this powerful practice.
