Day Retreat, Sat. 14 May with Lama Wangmo

Monk Rinchen

Lama Karma Wangmo first met His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa in the year 2000, just a few months after his arrival to India. Since then she has been studying and practicing Buddhism under the guidance of Chamgon Kenting Tai Situpa, from whom she also received ordination in 2006. She completed the traditional three year and three month meditation retreat under the guidance of Ringu Tulku Rinpoche in Sikkim.

After the retreat, Chamgon Kenting Tai Situpa appointed her as the resident Lama of the Palpung Yeshe Chöling Dharma Center in Slovenia.

Finding Peace Within
Exploring different aspects of Shamatha

In the current uncertain times, finding inner stability and tranquillity is an essential foundation for good practice. Good practice means being a good human being and a good meditator. We must make sure that our conduct and meditation go in the right direction to establish a sound foundation for future practice.
Lama Wangmo will explore this, as well as essential aspects of the stages of samatha practice. With samatha meditation, we establish a foundation of meditation without which progress is not easy.

It is a privilege to be offered these instructions from such a qualified teacher.

All are welcome!

 About London’s Day Retreats

We have been doing stimulating monthly Day Retreats at the Helios Centre for many years. Since the pandemic, we have been conducting them online, where there have been well attended.

We have a main topic for the day and often invite guest speakers, who give talks and have open discussion groups. We have a number of meditation sessions interspersed with the discussions and breaks for lunch, tea and biscuits. Some meditation sessions will be guided. Beginners are very welcome.


The day retreat will at Helios, and we will also use the “Zoom” platform.
