The Purpose of Meditation

Bringing peace, presence and clarity in our lives.

We have all heard about meditation, but do we know what meditation really is?

Grounded in the Dzgochen tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, which is known for its clarity, depth and simplicity, this retreat is a perfect occasion to explore tools for cultivating presence, peace and clarity, and to investigate how to bring these essential human qualities into our lives.

Held in the exceptional environment of Lerab Ling, which inspires calm and inner peace, this retreat offers the unique opportunity to take a break from everyday life and to enter into the experience of meditation.

Led by a team who have many years of experience in the practice of meditation and in guiding others, we will examine the timeless art of meditation practice through receiving clear instructions, guided practices and periods of silence. There will also be time for physical exercise and integration of meditation into movement – such as walking meditation – as well as plenty of opportunities for personal exchange and clarification.

This fresh and experiential approach is both for beginners as well as those who are already experienced in meditation and wish to deepen their practice. It is a perfect follow-up of Rigpa's What Meditation Really Is course.

PLEASE NOTE - for those who are not able to join the full retreat we offer a Weekend Option on 8 and 9 July.
