    Joyful Living Through Meditation with Choje Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche - 26th-28th September

    Join the Kagyu Samye Dzong London Sangha and community for a weekend of teachings with Choje Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche Abbot of Kagyu Samye Ling monastery.

    Lama Yeshe Rinpoche will teach methods to cultivate joy and inner peace. Meditation naturally becomes much more effective as soon as we introduce a genuine feeling of joy and enthusiasm.

    He will share, through his vast experience, some of the benefits and values of meditation. As is his custom he will also emphasise the value of a strong ethical foundation for our practice.
