Winter Retreat – Renewing Our Practice

The turn of the year can be a challenging time and yet is  also a good moment to pause and  find renewed strength and consolation in our practice. Please join us once again to explore how we can approach the new year with a spirit of bravery and adventure.

There will be daily guided instruction & short talks and readings about Shamatha-Vipassyana meditation, as also about courage and compassion. There will also be opportunities for one-on-one meditation interviews.

Please note: Priority will go to those committing to attending all three days.

The retreat will take place at the London Shambhala Meditation Centre, 27 Belmont Cl, Clapham, London SW4 6AY.
