Essential Meditations for the Spiritual Path

with Kadam Morten & Kadam Lucy

According to Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, we can easily gain profound realizations through the combination of our daily practice with occasional retreat.

This coming January, KMC NYC will offer five, week-long retreats on the meditations that make up the path to enlightenment. These retreats will be offered online and in person, and will be led by two of Venerable Geshe-la's most senior students, Kadam Morten & Kadam Lucy.

The meditations in weeks 1 and 2 will be based on the presentation of the Stages of the Path meditations presented in Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s The Mirror of Dharma with Additions. The meditations in weeks 3 - 5 will be based on The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra.

Can't commit to a full week of retreat? Join us for just one full day of retreat instead
