We live in a world where distractions are growing increasingly intense. However, in order to find deep inner peace, we need to find a way to move beyond these distractions and improve our concentration.

Concentration is important in every aspect of our life, from doing our job to driving our car, but it is especially important for getting the most out of meditation practice.

Part 1
During this day course, learn techniques to increase concentration both in and out of meditation. Everyone welcome.

Part 2
Instructions will be given during the day course that enable students to continue their training in meditation at home. This five-week training will include a daily meditation practice with simple prayers.

Part 3
Everyone is welcome to attend this Labour Weekend Retreat at Compassion Kadampa Buddhist Centre.

For those who have completed the first 2 parts of the training this will be an opportunity to gain deeper experience of mixing your mind with virtuous and positive states of mind.

For those who have not completed the first 2 parts of training in concentration there is still great benefit to be gained. Simply through the mental action of meditation we create the cause to experience peace and happiness in the future.

Retreat sessions will be guided by Buddhist nun Kelsang Richog. You do not have to attend all sessions. There will be long breaks between each session where you are free to leave and come back.
