Meditation and Modern Buddhism

Silent Guided Retreat at Penmeiddyn

August 25th to 27th


Transform Your Life – A Blissful Journey

with kelsang Öpel

Being silent in retreat is a wonderful opportunity to let the mental chatter fade away and deeply enjoy peace and happiness. From the calm inner space of your own mind, you can begin to bring about the transformation and change you wish for.

We all wish to be happy and free from problems and during this meaningful week end break in peaceful and silent surroundings you will have the opportunity to deeply mix your mind with positive objects of meditation that lead directly to inner peace and happiness.

If you have not participated in a silent retreat before, this is an ideal introduction. This retreat is suitable for everyone from beginners and those with experience.

All teachings and meditations will be based on Modern Buddhsim Teachings, found in Transform Your Life, By Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.

The retreat will be held at Permeiddyn Retreat Centre a five bedroomed farmhouse. The three and a half acres of secluded private woodland lends itself to solitary retreat and silence. It is only two miles from the pebbled and sandy beaches and rugged coastline of the North Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

Meditation Session will be on Saturday 9am, 11.30am, 4pm, 7.30pm and Sunday at 9am and 11.30am
