Exploring the Preliminaries 2018-02-07T10:02:49+00:00

April 28th – May 2nd

With Beth Halford & Christian Fischer

Have you received precious advice from a teacher who has advised you to complete some preliminary practices, studying a course which requires you to do them, or wish to complete them for another reason but don’t know how to do them or are feeling daunted by the challenge?

This course is a wonderful opportunity to learn how to do these incredibly beneficial practices as well as learning more about why they are so important to complete. We are aiming to cover water bowls, thirty seven heap mandalas, tsa tsa’s, prostrations, refuge and possibly more depending on how long each takes and which are particularly relevant to people in the group.

You are welcome to attend the whole course or less, depending on what suits you.

Come and join us in the quiet and peaceful environment of Land of Joy to discover these practices which may have so felt out of your reach until now.

Beth first discovered Tibetan Buddhism at Root Institute in Bodhgaya, India in 2012 when volunteering there as a Physiotherapist. Since then, she has received many teachings from Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche, as well as attending a number of retreats including the one month November course at Kopan Monastery and her own personal retreat in a remote village in the Nepal Himalayas.

She was incredibly fortunate to complete nearly 100,000 water bowl offerings in Bodhgaya, one of the most powerful places in Buddhism and a preliminaries retreat in the Rolwaling area of the Nepal Himalayas.

She appreciates how daunting and difficult it can be to get started and continue these practices as well as finding someone to show how to do them and is therefore looking forward to being able to share what others have so kindly shown her.
