Urban Retreat in Liverpool

August 7, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - August 9, 2015 @ 5:00 pm


The Way of Universal Compassion

A Buddhist Meditation and Teaching Retreat with Lama Lhakpa Yeshe

Liverpool Hope Park
Buddhism is not a religion, it is simply a philosophy which one has to practice. We all wish to be happy. Happiness comes from within ourselves, through wisdom and compassion.

Lama Lhakpa Yeshe teaches the development of wisdom and compassion necessary to meditate effectively. You are warmly encouraged to ask questions and discuss openly, both within the programmed classes and during the extended meal times.

Cost is £167 for 3 days including accommodation and all meals. £50 deposit is required to secure a place.

A daily rate will also be made available for persons not requiring accommodation. Meals will still be included in the daily rate, as attendees will be expected to be on site before breakfast time and after evening meal in order to take part in retreat activities.

There are a limited number of places available at £100 for those on low or no wage.

Payments can be accepted via BACS or cheque and optionally in instalments if you prefer.

The venue is the lovely Hope Park campus of Hope University in Liverpool. Just 5 miles from the city centre.
