Buddhist Retreat

Post-Summer Festival Retreat

with Kadam Ai Peng McBretney

28 – 30 Aug | Various Sessions

Everybody who has received Highest Yoga Empowerment is welcome to attend this retreat. The sessions will be live-streamed and can be attended online or in-person.

This guided retreat is a wonderful opportunity to develop our experience of Highest Yoga Tantra following the priceless blessing empowerments of Heruka and Vajrayogini that we can receive at the Summer Festival from Gen-la Kelsang Jampa, the Deputy Spiritual Director of the NKT.

Through training in these practices on this retreat we can change our basis of imputation from an impure body and mind to the completely pure body and mind of an enlightened Deity. In this way we can quickly become a completely pure being, an enlightened Deity such as Vajrayogini or Heruka, experiencing everything – our world, our self, our enjoyments, and our activities – as completely pure.

Everybody who has received Highest Yoga Empowerment is welcome to attend this retreat. The sessions will be live-streamed and can be attended online or in-person.

Wonderful oasis of calm in a hectic world. What I've learnt here has helped me and those connected with me, in every aspect of life. The resident teacher, Ai Peng, is knowledgable, helpful and kind, and displays a perfect example of a Buddhist Practitioner. Well worth a visit.

A lovely, peaceful place where it was fantastic to think in a different way and try and clear my mind. Not something I would usually have done in the past - but would definitely come back again when solace is needed or after a busy week.

We attended the teaching 'Dealing with Loss and Change'. It was a wonderful, meaningful experience on death, and one that we will remember and treasure always.
