Open heartedness, joy and wisdom

Path to Enlightenment or lam.rim, maps the path from where we are now – wherever that may be for us individually – to the supreme open heartedness, joy and wisdom of enlightenment. People often ask – there are so many meditation practices and teachings: where do I start? 

The Path to Enlightenment answers that question – leading us step by step through the ever expanding perspectives of the three scopes, enabling us to realise our potential for enlightenment. And  from the moment we set foot on that path our positive qualities and experiences begin to flourish – our compassion, our love, our resilience, sensitivity, energy and wisdom.  Our life becomes lighter and joy is closer to the surface.

Beautiful and comfortable retreat setting

In this retreat, Les Sheehy will lead us through the teachings and meditations on lam.rim based on Ven Geshe Acharya Loden’s definitive text, Path to Enlightenment in Tibetan Buddhism. The practice of lam.rim is life changing and the opportunity to focus on the entire scope of the lam.rim in the  beautiful and comfortable retreat setting of the Peaceful Land of Joy is not to be missed!

Les is renowned for his clear, practical and down to earth teachings, catering for people at all levels of experience of Buddhist philosophy and meditation.


Can anyone attend the retreat?

Yes. Path to Enlightenment presents the core principles of Buddhist philosophy and has the wonderful quality of showing us how to meditate on those teachings step by step.

For people who are already familiar with lam.rim, this retreat will deepen your practice and understanding. The retreat is equally a wonderful opportunity for people who are not familiar with lam.rim or meditation but who wish to gain a holistic experience of the perspectives and meditations taught in the Buddhist tradition.
