Our festivals and away retreats provide a precious opportunity to study and practice the special presentation of modern Buddhism taught by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, the Founder of the NKT-IKBU.

The events include teachings, meditations, short retreats and blessing empowerments*.

Festivals and retreats give us the precious opportunity to meet and practice with like-minded people from all over the world. You will leave refreshed  and spiritually re-energised.

Everyone is welcome to attend regardless of experience.

*Away retreats do not have blessing empowerments.
