Changing Direction: The Practice of the Eleven Reversals

The Post-International Fall Festival retreat will provide a wonderful opportunity to explore and deepen our experience of the teachings on the eleven reversals. The eleven reversals reveal the essence of Buddha’s teachings of Sutra and Tantra. On this weekend retreat, Gen-la Kunsang will provide a clear and inspiring summary of these precious teachings and and how we can integrate them into our daily life.

The retreat is suitable for those attending the festival who wish to deepen their experience, or for those unable to attend and want to catch up on the teachings.

Relax and enjoy this special practice in the beautiful and blessed surroundings of Madhyamaka KMC, the perfect environment in which to take these teachings to heart in the company of Kadampa family and friends – everybody welcome!
