The Peace of Concentration Retreat
Saturday, January 2nd – Thursday, January 7th

*via Zoom*
co-hosted by KMC San Francisco, KMC Philadelphia and Menlha KBC

Find peace within and develop your concentration capacity through a relaxing retreat focusing on the breath in guided sessions with experienced Kadampa Teachers Gen Chogyop (KMC Philadelphia and Menlha KBC) and Gen Choma (KMC San Francisco). You are welcome to join in as many sessions as you like. Identify and tame your personal meditation obstacles by exploring tried and tested ancient Buddhist wisdom solutions. Come revel in your own inner peace.

Even though breathing meditation is only a preliminary state of meditation, it can be quite powerful. We can see from this practice that it is possible to experience inner peace and contentment just by controlling the mind, without having to depend at all upon external conditions.” extract from “How to Transform Your Life” by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

The retreat is suitable for all levels of experience. No previous meditation experience is needed.
