Join us for an extraordinary journey over the course of this weekend retreat, dedicated to the exploration of emptiness as presented in the Gelug tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. This retreat offers a unique opportunity to delve into one of the most essential and liberating teachings of Buddhism, providing participants with practical meditative tools to understand and experience the nature of emptiness.

Throughout this immersive weekend, participants will:

Gain a deeper understanding of the Gelug school’s interpretation of emptiness, rooted in the teachings of the great master Tsongkhapa.

Engage in guided meditations and contemplative practices specifically designed to deepen the understanding of emptiness, moving beyond intellectual comprehension to direct experiential insight.

Explore the practical implications of the realization of emptiness in daily life, understanding how this profound insight can transform our interactions with the world and our approach to suffering and happiness.

The retreat will balance in-depth teachings with practical meditation sessions, allowing participants to integrate the profound wisdom of the Gelug school into their practice. Emphasis will be placed on the unique approach of the Gelug tradition to meditating on emptiness, including its emphasis on precise philosophical understanding combined with deep meditative experience.

This retreat is suitable for individuals at all stages of their spiritual journey, whether new to the concept of emptiness or seeking to deepen their existing understanding and practice. It offers a rare opportunity to connect with the essence of the Gelug teachings on emptiness and to cultivate the conditions for genuine insight and transformation.
