Transform Your Life


weekend retreat

9.30am – 3pm

Francolin Fields Retreat
Lions River – 14 District Rd 369

guided retreat
With Kelsang Jampel, Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Centre Durban

On this special week retreat, guided by Buddhist monk and Teacher Kelsang Jampel, we will gain practical experience of the meditations contained within Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s new book How To Transform Your Life. This book is an indispensable guide on how to use Buddhist meditation to build the foundation of inner peace within our busy and often stressful lives and how to enter, make progress, and complete the Buddhist path to enlightenment.

Gen Phuntsog

The meditations will be steeped in Buddhist wisdom and are perfectly suited to modern life. This retreat is perfect for anyone wishing to deepen their understanding of Buddhist philosophy, the Buddhist way of life, and how to develop a powerful daily meditation practice.

The retreat will be based upon the teachings at this year’s NKT International Summer Festival 2017 held in the UK.

Cost: R150 per day or R300 for whole retreat (retreat is free for members).

Lunch on Saturday and Sunday is available at R50 per person.

Please remember to book your accommodation separately with Carol
