Day Retreat

A big thanks to Tsering Paldron, for a most enjoyable Day Retreat in April!

In this coming month, the experienced and popular teacher, Lama Wangmo, agreed to continue with us our fascinating journey of exploring mindfulness according to the Satipatthana Sutra.

Saturday, 19 May 2018 with Lama Wangmo: The Journey to Buddhahood: The Satipatthana Sutra (Part 3), “Mindfulness of Phenomena”

Mindfulness is the foundation of all meditations.

First we will talk about mindfulness in general - about the definition and the sources of mindfulness. Then we will revisit the four applications of mindfulness - mindfulness of the body, feelings, mind and phenomena.

Focusing mainly on the mindfulness of phenomena, we will use different meditation techniques to bring a deeper understanding of the subject.

We will include Mahayana and Vajrayana perspectives to enrich our understanding of the sutra.

Beginners are welcome!

About Lama Wangmo

Lama Karma Wangmo first met His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa in the year 2000, just a few months after his arrival to India. Since then she has been studying and practicing Buddhism under the guidance of His Eminence, Tai Situpa, from whom she also received ordination in 2006.

She completed the traditional three year and three month meditation retreat under the guidance of Ringu Tulku Rinpoche in Sikkim.

After the retreat, Tai Situpa appointed her as the resident Lama of the Palpung Yeshe Chöling Dharma Center in Slovenia.

About London’s Day Retreats

Bodhicharya London is under the guidance of Ringu Tulku. We have been doing stimulating monthly day retreats at the Helios Centre for some time now.

We do a number of meditation sessions interspersed with the discussions and breaks for lunch, tea and biscuits. By the end of the day, we will have done about three hours of meditation in total. Beginners are very welcome.

The suggested voluntary donation is £20 for the day and the venue. If you can’t afford it, you can give a smaller amount (just mention this to the group guide). We have two optional additional collections. One collection is for either Ringu Tulku or the Rigul Trust, and one for the retreat guide.

We usually have lunch nearby for about £6, if you would like to join us.

We are saving money for future projects (for example our visiting teachers), so if you give more, it helps us fund these. You can also become a member, or make an additional donation on the the day or direct to our bank account.
