  • The Teacher

    This course is taught by Gen Chodor. Gen Chodor is a western Buddhist Monk. Ordained in 2001, he is a close disciple of Geshe-la and has studied and practiced Buddhism for many years. He is much loved for his relaxed and gentle nature and teaches with great clarity, insight and wisdom, skilfully guiding people to inner peace and happiness in their lives.

  • Topic

    Stages of the Path, or ‘Lamrim’, is a special arrangement of all Buddha’s teachings that is easy to understand and put into practice. By becoming familiar with these meditations, you will enjoy the peace and fulfillment that comes from following a spiritual way of life.

    Meditation on Buddha’s teachings opens our heart and connects us with others. We learn to see our problems from a different perspective, freeing us from painful negative minds, and gain deep insight into where true happiness lies and how we can experience this. Lamrim meditation brings about a powerful and long lasting positive transformation in our mind.

    This Lamrim retreat is a special opportunity to deepen our experience of the meditations contained with the The New Meditation Handbook by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. This retreat is open to everyone.


    The retreat will begin Friday evening at 7.00 pm with an introduction and will conclude on Monday at 1.00 pm. Each session will consist of traditional Buddhist prayers, a short Buddhist teaching to introduce the meditation for the session, and a guided meditation.
