Shamatha meditation retreat with Jhampa (Karl William Gratton).

19 April @ 6:30 pm - 21 April @ 3:00 pm AEST


About Event:

“I felt in need of a great pilgrimage, so I sat still for three days.”

Hafiz. Sufi poet/mystic 

This meditation retreat is an opportunity to sit and abide in the beautiful surroundings within the Chenrezig Institute Gompa to “sooth the body, still the mind and illuminate awareness.” Each day will consist of theoretical instruction and ample time for meditation practice as well as group discussion.

About Teacher:

Jhampa (Karl William Gratton) was a monk at Chenrezig Institute for many years studying philosophy, engaging in practice, and is well known in the Chenrezig community. He then lived in India and Sri Lanka learning Tibetan language and continuing Buddhist study and practice. Now, Jhampa is a qualified Counsellor working at a holistic mental health retreat facility on the Sunshine Coast and is also a dedicated father and loving partner. His previous meditation days have included creative and integrative presentations of meditation, mind, and the human condition as well as guidance in practice.
