Somerton Park – Clarity Silent Retreat – 1 June 2024


Day Retreat

A one-day silent retreat with Kelsang Monlam


All conceptual thoughts and mental activity arise and dissolve within the inner space of the mind. Through meditating on the clarity of our mind we learn to simply observe our thoughts, allowing them to arise and dissolve back into the mind. Just as waves arise from the ocean and then subside and become one with the ocean again. Gradually we perceive only clarity, and we enjoy the spacious peaceful feeling it evokes.

Everyone is welcome.

NB: This retreat will be silent until lunchtime. The afternoon session will include time for questions.
