The Topic of the Retreat
On this retreat, Kelsang Lhachog will guide us through a series of meditations based on Geshe Kelsang Gyatso's newly released book How to Transform Your Life. The meditations will have a profoundly transformative effect on the mind, give us the perspective and confidence we need to navigate our life effectively and open our eyes to the pure and lasting happiness that we are all capable of experiencing.
