Day Retreat

Our previous Day Retreat

We had now our day retreats using the Zoom platform. It worked well, and it felt surprisingly similar to our day retreats at Helios. People could join in with the discussions almost as easily as when we were all together in the same room. With practice, it will get better and better. The advantage is that people can join our day retreats from all over the world, which is amazing.

We are grateful for Lama Wangmo’ vist and teachings in May. In June and July Tenzin Peljor will be our guest.

Day Retreat, 13 June with Tenzin Peljor Bhikshu
“Dealing With Emotions From A Buddhist Perspective”

Tenzin Peljor

At this Saturday Day Retreat, organised by Bodhicharya London, we will look more deeply into the causes and conditions of conflict-generating emotions such as fear or anger, helplessness, frustration, uncertainty, etc.

We will also explore how to deal with emotions, which disturb the mind, in a more constructive, less painless way, and how to reduce or skillfully dissolve them.

The course will provide theoretical basics as well as meditation exercises to help participants develop a healthy approach in dealing with emotions that cause mental turmoil or suffering.

There will be room for discussion, questions & answers.

The day retreat will be very much like our day retreats at Helios, but we will use the “Zoom” platform. We will have a talk, discussions and meditation sessions. We will also have tea breaks and lunch break. Let’s see how this turns out! We already doing something like this for the Thursday evening group. Please join us!

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. Some meditation sessions will be guided.

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.
