Like a mirage that appears to be water but is not in fact water, things appear in a deceptive way.

“Emptiness is the way things exist as opposed to the way they appear… Although things appear directly to our senses to be truly, or inherently, existent, in reality all phenomena lack, or are empty of, true existence.” - Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Modern Buddhism

Emptiness Drop-in classes, 13 October – 20 November
There will also be 6 weeks of drop-in classes at all our branches prior to the retreat giving instructions on the meditations guided on the retreat.

​​Emptiness ​Day Course, 26th October
​Prior to the weekend retreat there will be a day course where Resident Teacher and Buddhist nun Kelsang Pagma will teach the meditations that will be guided during the retreat.

​A Weekend of Wisdom - Weekend Retreat at Waihoanga Centre – Otaki, November 21- 23
In this retreat, discover this profound Buddhist knowledge of the truth of phenomena, emptiness. Emptiness simply means how all things actually exist rather than how things appear to be. With emptiness as a foundation of reflection on our personal experiences, you have a great opportunity to sort out your source of pain and suffering and to find your own source of unlimited happiness and permanent liberation.

​For cost and booking information, please visit Bodh Gaya website.
