WEEKEND: Rest and reflect


Our Resident Teacher of Bodhisattva Kadampa Meditation Centre is Gen Kelsang Jigme.

Ordained as a monk in 1997 by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Gen Jigme has studied, practised and taught Kadampa Buddhism under Geshe Kelsang’s guidance in major Kadampa Centres throughout the UK for many years. He shows a humble, kind example as a practitioner and his clear explanations of Buddha’s teachings give us the confidence to practise them in our daily life.

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 ‘Urban Silent Retreat’ mini course from 9am-4pm with  lunch.

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.
