Our New Year meditation retreat from Saturday 20 to Saturday 27 January will be on the powerful, simple practice of mahamudra meditation.
Mahamudra is known for its power to reduce stress, ease suffering and difficult mental states, generate joy, and as a healing practice.
In this retreat we will practise meditation on our natural clear state of mind and progress to meditation on the ultimate nature of our mind and ourselves, which is the actual mahamudra, ultimate reality.
About the retreat
This practice allows us deep insight into our mind and is a special way to welcome in the New Year.
The retreat is suitable for new and experienced meditators and anyone who meditates can realise the benefits of this practical method.
It is held over eight days including the Australia Day holiday, with the option to stay at the Peaceful Land of Joy Meditation Centre in Yuroke or to attend each day. There is plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful peaceful environment of the temple and gardens, delicious home cooked food and to meet other meditators in a welcoming community.
The retreat will be led by Les Sheehy, long-term student of the Tibetan Buddhist Society’s Founder, Venerable Geshe Acharya Thubten Loden, and teacher and director of the Tibetan Buddhist Society in Perth.
Les received these mahamudra teachings over 35 years ago from his Gurus, Geshe Acharya Thubten Loden and Zasep Tulku Rinpoche, and has taught and led mahamudra retreats for many years.
