Bodhicharya London Day Retreat

Who we are

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

Day Retreat

We now have our day retreats using the Zoom platform. It is working well, and it feels surprisingly similar to our day retreats at Helios. People can join in with the discussions almost as easily as when we are 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!

Our previous Day Retreat

Last month, Tsering Paldron led a wonderful Day Retreat in her unique style, warm and thorough . We are fortunate to have such good teachers available. Her talk was profound and thought-provoking. Thank you, Tsering!

Day Retreat, 14 November with Dirk and Lama Tsultrim: “The The Art of Transcending Afflictions”

This month, Lama Tsultrim (Bodhicharya France) will start the day retreat with an opening talk, but will not be able to lead the whole Day Retreat. He is a popular teacher, and we are grateful that he can open the Day Retreat.

He writes:
"The topic will be The Nature of Desire and Other Kleshas according to Nagajurna. In the text, 'The Transcendent Intelligence, the Fundamental Treatise of the Middle Path', we can look at Nagajurna's point of view and how to apply it in our daily life. I think it is very useful for our practice."

This Day Retreat will be dedicated to practice. After Lambert Tsultrim's talk, we will look with Dirk at how to improve and sustain our awareness. A key way of of overcoming afflictions is to develop our awareness in daily life, so that we can effectively apply at Tsultrim's advice. We will look at how the understanding of "The Eight Consciousnesses" can guide us to improving our awareness. How can mindfulness of our own awareness be maintained?

There will be ample room for discussion, questions & answers.

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.


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!
