Day Retreat

We’ve just had an enriching Day Retreat with Rinchen, who led us to reflect and re-evaluate our values. It was great to see him again, and we hope that we will see him regularly in the future. Thank you so much, Rinchen!

Saturday, 10 November 2018 with Tsering Paldron: “Mindfulness in the Satipatthana Sutra, and Mahamudra”

Monk Rinchen

We can once again welcome Tsering Paldron back to London. She is becoming  an increasingly popular teacher, and it is a privilege to have her here.

The Satipatthana Sutra has a wealth of instructions on the cultivation of awareness. Whatever we experience, that can be included in our spiritual practice. We always have this wonderful opportunity of spiritual growth, during good times and bad. It is truly a blessing.

The foundations explained by Shakyamuni Buddha in the Satipatthana Sutra is explored and practised with a wealth of approaches in the Theravada (Sharavakayana), Mahayana and Vajrayana traditions. Tsering will explore how the Mahamudra teachings of the Vajrayana led to the profound wisdom and insight of so many extraordinary yogins of Tibet.

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.
