Prayers & Formal Kadampa Retreats

About Prayers

Prayer

​JLC has a programme of daily, weekly, fortnightly and monthly prayers which are free for everyone to join. We will be posting more detailed information about these prayers soon, but in the mean time you can look at our calendar to see when they're on.

About Retreats

​In addition to our beginners retreats Jangchub Ling Centre hosts several formal retreats based around Kadampa Buddhist practice. These retreats are free and can be attended by anyone except where indicated, but if you have not been on one of these retreats previously we recommend getting in touch first, so you can check if they're right for you. We ask that all attendees arrive five minutes before session time so that we can start promptly.
