How to transform your life


This retreat will be guided by Gen Kelsang Togden, resident teacher of the Kadampa Meditation Centre in Auckland. Gen Togden has also been National Spiritual Director of the NKT-IKBU in Portugal and South America.

After the Kadampa International Festivals where thousands of people gather from all over the world, many Kadampa Meditation Centres (KMC) and International Retreat Centres (IRC) offer ‘Post-Festival-retreats’ to deepen the experience of the teachings and meditations held at the Festival. This year at the 2017 International Summer Festival, we will receive for the first time at an International Festival the oral transmission of the new book from Venerebale Geshe kelsang Gyatso, How to transform your life

* It is not necessary to have assisted to the Festival in order to join this retreat. 

The Book How to transform your life is a very practical manual to stop our experience of problems, and find deep and lasting happiness through developing our inner peace.

“If we practice the instructions presented in this book we can transform our life from a state of misery into one of pure and everlasting happiness. These instructions are scientific methods to improve our human nature. Everybody needs to begood-natured with a good heart, because in this way we can solve our own problems as well as those of others, and we can make our human life meaningful.”
How to Transform Your Life. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

A Joyful Journey

In this retreat we will reveal effective methods of the practice of mindfulness and meditation that we can all
use in our daily lives to acquire a special power that will enable us to always be happy. Each person has the
potential to enjoy deep happiness. In spite of encountering circumstances or people can complicate our life, the main obstacle that prevents us from being always happy is within our own mind. The harmful attitudes and emotions that we generate
obscure our mental clarity and thus decreasing our ability to fulfill our most basic wishes. If we learn to
overcome them in a constructive and gentle manner, we will obtain the power to be happy.
