Finding Real Refuge

September 8, 2023 - September 13, 2023

Refuge Retreat

Meditations for Inner Strength & Protection ~ Refuge Retreat with Kadampa Buddhist Nun & Teacher Kelsang Khacho

We usually try to find stability and protection from unpleasant feelings by surrounding ourselves with people and things that make us feel happy, comfortable and safe. In reality, people and things are impermanent, lacking the power to truly shield us from suffering and problems. Only the Three Jewels – Buddha, Dharma and Sangha – can protect us permanently from the sufferings of this and our countless future lives.

This retreat provides a special opportunity to deepen our experience of refuge, the gateway to the Buddhist path. We will be guided in profound meditations that will help us develop real inner strength, protection, stability and resilience. By learning to go for refuge, we can create a feeling of peace, joy and freedom within our heart, which we can then share with others. Each session will include a teaching, chanted prayers and a guided meditation. No previous experience of meditation or Buddhism is needed. Everyone is welcome!
