A Padmasambhava practice retreat

Join us for an open retreat themed on the seven line prayer to Guru Padmasambhava based on a commentary by Jambgon Mipham who was an eminent 19th century Tibetan Buddhist.

We will explore the nature of mind - given the name Padmasambhava - in the context of meditation, ritual and discussion whilst dwelling in the beautiful natural environment of Sudarshanaloka.

Padmasambhava is about reaching into the depths of the human psyche, transforming our deeper energies and revealing the living presence of an awakened mind.

Suitable for both newcomers and those with experience.
