Festivals & Away Retreats

Save these dates of our Festivals & Away Retreats in 2023

These 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 consist of teachings, empowerments (not away retreats) and meditations, with short retreats. Everyone is welcome to attend regardless of experience.

Besides the teaching and meditation program, the festivals and away retreats provide a precious opportunity to meet and practice with like-minded people from all over the world.

You will come away not only refreshed and relaxed but also spiritually re-energised.
