WEEKEND: Rest and reflect


Our Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Thekchen, is a senior meditation teacher in the New Kadampa Tradition.  He has been a Buddhist monk and teacher for 20 years, having taught in many Centres in the UK and Canada.  He presents Buddha’s teachings in a practical and often humorous way that enables the listener to easily understand the teachings and put them into practise.

Rest and reflect

Take a break from your normal routine and spend a few days relaxing in the comfortable and peaceful surroundings of Bodhisattva Kadampa Meditation Centre. During this ‘retreat’ you can learn gentle meditation techniques to unwind your body and mind, so that you will return home feeling refreshed and rejuvenated both spiritually and physically.

The weekend begins  with an evening Friday two course supper followed by a guided meditation in our beautiful meditation space.

Saturday includes our half day ‘Self care and Self Love’ mini course from 10am-1.15pm with  lunch.

Visit this page for more information about the course.

There is an option to stay on Saturday night also.

The retreat venue

The environment of Bodhisattva KMC is very relaxing and there is plenty of time between retreat sessions to enjoy our café, to meet and chat with other retreaters and the community of Bodhisattva KMC, and to enjoy walking and gentle strolls along the Brighton and Hove sea front and promenade. The peaceful surroundings of Bodhisattva KMC help people to create a comfortable space within their own minds.
