Day Retreat

Our previous Day Retreat

We had a great Day Retreat with Dirk in November, where we looked at our inner process as meditators, and the differences between a worldly mind, driven by conditioning, and a clearer, more aware way of being. Everybody who attended, contributed to a meaningful day.

Day Retreat, 14 December with Monk Rinchen
“Maintaining motivation and clarity.”

RinchenWe need to practise joyfully and with resilience to gain wisdom.

Rinchen is coming to London directly after a five month retreat, before returning to the West Indies.

He will talk about his retreat - he'll discuss its ups and downs, give tips for meditators, and will speak particularly about mahamudra: the pinnacle of meditation practice.

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.
