Post International Festival Summer 2022 Retreat

with Gen Kelsang Rigden

August 15-20 in person and OnLine

Retreat based on the International Summer Festival held at the KMC Manjushri in UK.
Following the International Summer Festival, Gen Kelsang Rigden will lead a retreat based on the teachings and comments given at the festival, in order to gain familiarity with the profound Tantric practices of Mahamudra through meditation and contemplation.
In this way we can develop and increase our compassion to all sentient beings and thus come closer to enlightenment.

This is a wonderful opportunity to deepen our understanding of the Festival teachings in the beautiful mountains of Madrid.

Guided by this wonderful and much loved meditation master, we will delve into tantric methods that will help us generate a profoundly peaceful mind through by controling the subtle winds of our body.
*To carry out this retreat it is necessary to have initiation of Tantra of the Supreme Yoga or generate the sincere desire to receive it as soon as you can.


Gen Kelsang Rigden. Resident Teacher at Kadampa Meditation Center Deuachen in Sintra

Clear light of bliss is an extraordinary book that explains with exceptional clarity how through training in Mahamudra practices we can transform our very subtle mind into the clear light of bliss, the real quick path to enlightenment.
Deepening retreat, although it is suitable for everyone.
Attending the festival beforehand is recommended to get the maximum benefit, but is not an essential prerequisite.
