‘The Path To Happiness – A Weekend Retreat’, In Person Class


Saturday 5th June & Sunday 6th June

With Gen Pagpa

Open to anyone, no experience needed.

This retreat features teachings and guided meditations based on the recent International Spring Festival.

There will be a special focus on the sublime prayer called ‘Request to the Lord of all Lineages’.

This special prayer contains all of Buddha’s teachings, and it is easy to memorise and contemplate.

If we practice this prayer sincerely it will touch our heart and transform our mind into authentic wisdom, love, compassion and other spiritual realisations.

Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche says, “There is no greater meaning than engaging in this practice.”


You are welcome to attend both days or just one.

£5 off if you book for both days.

There is the option for meals between the sessions, and also to stay overnight at the Meditation Centre. If you are interested, please email mail@meditateinlancs.org.uk or call (01772) 884919.

By training in meditation, we create an inner space and clarity that enable us to control our mind regardless of the external circumstances.

Gradually we develop mental equilibrium, a balanced mind that is happy all the time, rather than an unbalanced mind that oscillates between the extremes of excitement and despondency.

If we train in meditation systematically, eventually we shall be able to eradicate from our mind the delusions that are the causes of all our problems and suffering.

In this way, we shall come to experience permanent inner peace.
