Vajravarahi Kadampa Meditation Centre
38 West Cliff, Preston, PR1 8HU.


Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha are known as the Three Jewels.

When we go for refuge to the Three Jewels we enter into the Buddhist family.

Buddha is the source of all teachings and blessings, Dharma is the realization of Buddha’s teachings, and Sangha is the pure Dharma practitioners who help us with our spiritual practice.


The day has 4 sessions, with an optional vegetarian/vegan lunch at 1pm.

The sessions last for 1 hour, and feature teachings, prayers, and a guided meditation.

This retreat day is open to anyone - no previous experience is needed.
