Friday 6 - Sunday 8, December 2019

The practice of Buddhist meditation allows us to uncover and experience our natural heritage of wisdom through cultivating insight or vipashyana. It is to establish a peaceful space of presence and mindfulness, allowing us to awaken a calmer and wider appreciation of our reality. A retreat is an invaluable moment of clarifying and re-affirming our commitment to the vision and path of meditation. Jakob Leschly  will lead the retreat, offering general instruction and individual interviews.

The retreat is held under the auspices of Tibetan Buddhist master Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche with Jakob Leschly as his resident instructor.
