Ocean of Peace Retreat 21 April – Free!

Bigton Hall 11am – 2pm

A Free-to-attend meditation half-day retreat – Find your inner peace & Stillness!

In busy daily life it is rare to experience even a few moments of mental peace and tranquillity. But simply through stepping out of our normal busyness and focusing on meditation for just a few hours we can achieve extraordinary blissful states of mind that show us the great potential within our mind for happiness and peace.

With distractions we cannot accomplish anything, whereas with concentration we gain the ability to accomplish our goals with relative ease and joy.  In this half day you will learn timeless practical and powerful methods for deepening your concentration in meditation and can discover how inner stillness is not so far away.

Through deepening our concentration in meditation we increase the power of our mind, our energy, our ability to fulfil our wishes and our inner peace. We will be able to significantly improve our meditation experience and overall inner peace, happiness and well being.

Guided by Gen Kelsang Tubchen, a modern Buddhist nun with over 20 years of experience of engaging in and guiding retreats. She will lead the meditations gently guiding us to deeper and deeper states of peace & tranquility.
