Bodhicharya London Day Retreat

Who we are

We are a Buddhist group which provides
teachings & practice in meditation & Buddhism.

Day Retreat

The winter is coming quickly, and I’ve been reflecting on the gloriously hot month of August in Portugal at the Bodhicharya Summer Camp, when the topic was Death. It was a remarkably cheerful occasion. Then we had the privilege of Ringu Tulku giving profound teachings here in London. How fortunate we are!

Saturday, 13 October 2018 with Rinchen: “How to turn everyday life into practice”

Monk Rinchen

Rinchen will first discuss why turning daily events in our life into practice (even to some extent), brings marvellous benefits.

He will speak about a commonly overlooked fact: that this is not easy, even for experienced meditators. We will consider why this is so.

There will be guidance on ways of actualising this in daily life.

The wise ones experience Nibbana, the incomparable freedom from bondage, only by always preservering with meditation.”—Shakyamuni Buddha

Beginners are welcome!

About London’s Day Retreats

Bodhicharya London is under the guidance of Ringu Tulku. We have been doing stimulating monthly day retreats at the Helios Centre for some time now.

We do a number of meditation sessions interspersed with the discussions and breaks for lunch, tea and biscuits. By the end of the day, we will have done about three hours of meditation in total. Beginners are very welcome.

10 a.m. to 5 p.m.


The suggested voluntary donation is £20 for the day and the venue. If you can’t afford it, you can give a smaller amount (just mention this to the group guide). We have two optional additional collections. One collection is for either Ringu Tulku or the Rigul Trust, and one for the retreat guide.

We usually have lunch nearby for about £6, if you would like to join us.

We are saving money for future projects (for example our visiting teachers), so if you give more, it helps us fund these. You can also become a member, or make an additional donation on the the day or direct to our bank account.
