URBAN Retreat | Change your Habits

January 3 @ 6:00 pm - January 7 @ 7:00 pm

R55.00 – R1,050.00

Feel like you’re going in reverse? Or at least the important things in your life are showing the opposite of progress, or are a little stagnant?


What would be a really helpful experience, is to reverse the habits that create all our problems!


There is a special presentation of Buddhas teachings which we can use to systematically change our habits and perhaps more importantly the way we view things. As we view ourself, others and our world in more insightful ways we start to develop new habits. And these give rise to a meaningful life!


The name of this special presentation is Lamrim, or the stages of the path to enlightenment. In this early January retreat Buddhist monk, Gen Jampel will guide us in these meditations leading to a new and joyful way of viewing life.


There couldn’t be a better way to get the year going!


Everybody’s welcome!
