A Weekend of Gratitude
Live Online • Sun 12 May • Classic Members and above
This day retreat is part of our weekend of gratitude.
“We are all interconnected in a web of kindness from which it is impossible to separate ourself. Everything we have and everything we enjoy, including our very life, is due to the kindness of others. In fact, every happiness there is in the world arises as a result of others’ kindness.” ~ Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, How to Transform Your Life
Our ability to realise and remember this fundamental truth will awaken a deep sense of closeness and appreciation that will transform our relationships with others and our world.
Over this day retreat we will learn clear and practical meditations that unlock our precious mind of gratitude, dispel any lingering resentment and entitlement, and thereby allow us to journey deep into this essential state of being. This retreat is suitable for everyone, from those completely new to meditation to the most accomplished meditators.
If you also choose to attend the day course entitled ‘Perceiving Through Wisdom & Compassion’, which runs the day before this retreat, you will get a deeper understanding of these teachings. However, it is perfectly appropriate and still immensely beneficial to attend only the retreat. See more information on this day course.
