Bodhicharya London Day Retreat

Who we are

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

Day Retreat

We had a thought-provoking retreat in February with Dirk and Steve, where we looked at the ‘self’ and at consciousness.

Day Retreat, 30 March 2019, with Lama Tsultrim: “How to integrate meditation in daily life.”

Steve Todd

We are honoured to welcome the very popular teacher, Lama Tsultrim (and click here) from France to teach at Bodhicharya London at the end of March. We have asked him to guide a day retreat for years, and he has finally agreed. Thanks, Lama Tsultrim!

Lama Tsultrim was born in Grenoble, in France in 1955. His main teachers were Kalu Rinpoche, Bokar Rinpoche, and now Ringu Tulku.

He did a traditional Retreat in France from 1988 till 1992, and took the first monastic vows in 1985.

He founded the monastic centre in Lusse, in the Vosges mountains in NE France. More information can be read by following the links above.

We will discuss the questions, why do we want to transform our minds? In which way does meditation transform our mind?

We are all living in the world and we have to practise staying in the world. Meditation can make us more involved in the world, but involved in a different way. How can we combine living our day-to-day lives with meditation?

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.
