Following on from the International Summer Festival at Manjushri KMC, England, Gen Kelsang Demo will lead this meditation retreat based on the commentary to the practices of The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra. This is a special opportunity to deepen our understanding of the teachings in our heart by receiving guidance from a qualified senior practitioner. In this way we progress along the blissful path to enlightenment with Gen Demo in the perfect conditions of an oasis of peace within the City of Sarasota, Florida.
The retreats include practical instructions, guided meditations, Q & A, and food and refreshments. In between sessions there is time to relax, rest, and spend time with like minded friends in our Cafe. The peaceful surroundings of KMC Florida help people to create a comfortable space within their own minds.
