Countryside meditation retreat
– Living with love, compassion & wisdom

October, Fri 27th to Sun 29th | with Gen Daö | at Langebæk Course & Retreat Center, Petersgaard Alle 2, 4772 Langebæk

Enjoy a deeply relaxing weekend of talks & guided meditations, in the tranquil setting of Langebaek retreat centre, in the beautiful southern Zealand countryside. Everyone is welcome. This meditation retreat is suitable for beginners to meditation and those with more experience.

About the meditation retreat

Discover the power of living with real love, compassion and wisdom for improving our life and all our relationships. At this time the world needs more love, compassion & wisdom. In this retreat we will discover how we can all accomplish this. We will learn meditations and ways of relating to daily life, that have proven effective for centuries in enabling everyone to live and grow these good qualities.

We will explore meditations that enable us to access and maintain inner peace and joy, even when experiencing difficulties. Connecting to the natural peace and joy within our mind opens us up to recognising and identifying with the potential for happiness, love, compassion and other good qualities that exist within each and everyone of us. We will explore how meditation enables us to connect to, strengthen and grow this inner potential.

This retreat will be based on meditations and practises for daily life explained in the inspiring book ‘The new eight steps to happiness’ by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. This highly practical manual for personal development shows us how we can use every situation we meet in life – good or bad – to strengthen and grow our love, compassion & wisdom. In this way we will gradually find a deep and lasting inner peace, happiness and well-being within, no matter what is happening in our life. We will discover there is no more powerful and positive way to solve our own and others problems – as well as live a truly happy and fulfilling life – than to live with love, compassion & wisdom.

Introduction to Tantra

November, Sat 11th |10:00 to 15:00 | with Gen Daö | at KMC CPH

Nowadays, Tantra is very popular. However, there is a lot of misunderstanding about the real meaning of this inspiring and highly practical inner training. In this workshop, we will discover how the basis for training in Tantra is realizing that everyone has an extraordinary potential to live a life of great freedom and joy. In Tantric meditation, we find the perfect methods to access and fully actualise this inner potential.

Gen Daö will explain how, by learning to experience increasingly subtle and deeply peaceful levels of mind in meditation, we gain clear insight into the nature and potential of our mind, and the nature of reality. Through these insights we come to understand that we and others have the freedom to change, to become the truly loving, compassionate and wise person we would wish to be.

Course fee: 300kr | students 200kr | member 150kr

The workshop fee includes coffee, tea and biscuits. Lunch can be found in the many good restaurants and cafes near the Centre.


Giv slip på stress

Lør. 18 Nov |10:00 till 13:15 | med Nathalie Rasmussen | KMC CPH

I vores travle hverdag oplever vi for tid til anden meget stress og angst. De meste af vores stress kommer fra vores tankevirksomhed. Dagligdagsproblemer, som for eksempel problemer i parforholdet og dårligt helbred, stammer fra eller bliver forstærket af denne stress.

I denne workshop lærer vi hvordan buddhistisk meditation og et ændret fokus, kan hjælpe os med at reducere og eliminere stress. Ved at bruge disse metoder i vores dagligdag, kan vi nyde en afslappet tilgang til livet.

Pure mind, pure world
The empowerment of Buddha Vajrasattva

November, Sat 25th | 10:00 to 15:00 | with Gen Daö | at KMC CPH

An empowerment is a deeply peaceful guided meditation through which we connect to a Buddha’s inspiration. By receiving the empowerment of Vajrasattva, the Buddha of purification, we can begin the journey of actualising our spiritual potential for a deeply happy and meaningful life, free of negativity.

Gen Daö will guide the empowerment in the morning and then, in the afternoon, explain a special meditation practice that enables us to swiftly eliminate the negativity from our mind and allow its natural purity to shine through.

There will be a break for lunch from 12.00-13.30, available from nearby cafes and restaurants


Att övervinna oro

2 december | 13.30-16-00 | med Gen Daö | Yoga Kendra Friisgatan 6C, Malmö

Oro och stress är växande och vanliga problem för människor i vår upptagna, moderna värld. Dessa sinnesstämningar hindrar oss från att uppleva frid och att njuta av livet.

Meditation är ett effektivt sätt att bekämpa negativa sinnesstämningar och skapa en känsla av mental frihet. Genom att skaffa sig erfarenhet av buddhistiska meditationstekniker och positivt tänkande kan vi lära oss att kontrollera vårt sinne, istället för att tillåta vårt sinne att kontrollera oss. Genom att lära oss att acceptera smärtsamma känslor, istället för att få panik över dem, kan vi behålla en ett lugnt och lyckligt sinne i alla situationer.

Workshopen kommer att innehålla föreläsningar och guidade meditationer på tydligt, lättförståelig engelska. Denna workshop lämpar sig för nybörjare och dem med mer erfarenhet av meditation.

Workshopsavgift: 250kr | students 150kr

Overcoming Anxiety

2 Dec | 13.30-16.00 | With Gen Daö | Yoga Kendra, Friisgatan 6C, Malmö

Anxiety and stress are increasingly common problems for people in our busy, modern world. These states of mind prevent us from experiencing peace and enjoying life.

Meditation is an effective way to combat negative states of mind and create a sense of mental freedom. By gaining experience of Buddhist meditation techniques and positive thinking we can learn to control our mind, rather than allowing our mind to control us. By learning to accept painful feelings rather than being panicked by them we can keep a calm and happy mind in all situations.

The workshop will include talks and guided meditations in clear, easy-to-understand English. This workshop is suitable for complete beginners and those with more experience of meditation.

international events

Every year, our tradition, the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT-IKBU) organises world-wide programs on modern Buddhism and meditation to explain how to apply Buddha’s teachings (Dharma) to modern living. The programs include International Festivals, National Festivals and Dharma Celebrations. Everyone is welcome, Buddhist or not.

The events vary in length from two days to two weeks, but whatever their duration they all offer a vacation with a difference – a chance to break free from the hectic routines of daily life and focus on the things that really matter. You will come away not only refreshed and relaxed but also spiritually re-energised.
