Away Retreat at Kailash IRC in the Valais Mountains

March 16 - 18, 2018


About this Retreat:

In this busy world, our experiences of happiness are fleeting and short-lived, while inner peace eludes us completely. Our negative states of mind, such as uncontrolled desire and anger, create endless problems for ourselves and others, and prevent us from fulfilling our deepest wishes. By meditating on Buddha's popular teaching on the Four Noble Truths, which offer a clear and simple solution to all our problems, we are guided to an oasis of peace within our hearts. Through meditation you can overcome the problem of anger and learn how to develop and maintain patience when faced with even the most difficult circumstances.

A meditation retreat on Buddhas precious teaching of the Four Noble Truths with respect to the sufferings of disappointment, discouragement, stress and anger in our mind.
