What is retreat? It is when we stop all forms of busyness and worldly activities and focus on spiritual practice. Short retreats give us the opportunity to gain heart-felt meditative experience and use this experience to solve daily problems. How often do you give yourself this special time?

An excellent time to engage in retreat is straight after receiving the powerful inspiration of The Australian Dharma Celebration. The blessings of the Buddha of Compassion are strong and the teachings fresh. The inner and outer conditions for a profound and moving retreat will all be assembled, so don’t miss the opportunity to experience the essential insights into the Avalokiteshvara Sadhana.

The Teacher

The teacher of this retreat is Gen Kelsang Dornying, the Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Centre Australia and Kadampa Meditation Centre Melbourne. Gen Dornying has been teaching Kadampa Buddhism in Australia for over 16 years. He is an inspiring and light-hearted teacher of modern Buddhism who makes Buddha’s teachings clear, accessible and applicable to modern life.
