Free your mind with wisdom

Saturday/Sunday: August 15th 10.30 – August 16th 17.30
Weekend meditation retreat with Kadam Lucy James
(Individual session times are given below)

Is your mind ever crammed full of thoughts you’d rather not be having? Or stuck in painful places, as if your thoughts are thinking you rather than the other way around? Dragging you around with them wherever they feel like it, even when you’d rather be somewhere else? And seemingly fixed and intractable even when you’ve been trying your best to change them?

Fortunately for all of us, Buddha’s teachings reveal that the inflexible, limited mind we normally relate to is nowhere near as solid or fixed as it appears! By meditating on our mind’s ultimate nature, its emptiness of existing in an objective, inherent way, we can quickly break free — uncovering our boundless potential for joyful transformation.

Whether you are an experienced meditator or a newcomer, this retreat will greatly improve the quality of your meditation. You will feel increasing peace and energy over the course of the weekend, and can then bring this to your home and to work with you!

About Kadam Lucy

Kadam Lucy is an internationally renowned meditation teacher. She is Resident Teacher at Kadampa Meditation Centre Colorado. One of the senior teachers of Kadampa Buddhism, since 1981 she has taught extensively in England, Florida, and San Francisco, and helped set up many thriving meditation centres. She is regularly invited to teach courses around the United States and Europe due to her ability in presenting both simple and profound subjects with great clarity.

For many years, her main job was to help with the editing and production of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s books; and she has also engaged in several years of meditation retreat.

Kadam Lucy is appreciated for her deep wisdom, clear mind, and inspiring yet practical presentation of Buddha’s teachings and meditations. She is very skilled at explaining how to make these teachings immediately effective in our busy modern lives, to help both ourselves and everyone around us.

About this online event

Kadam Lucy was due to visit the Nordic region in August to give live teachings. However, due to current travel restrictions, this is not possible, so she is giving the teachings she would have given via a combination of live-streaming and recorded videos.

She will be teaching a live class on Friday 14th August, and be leading a meditation retreat on 15th & 16th August. Everyone is welcome to attend.

After booking, you will be sent a link to where you can access the online classes.
