Prayers & Formal Kadampa Retreats

About Prayers


​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.

Upcoming retreats:

'Stages of the Path' Retreat

stages of the path

Tuesday, 27th August to Saturday, 31st August at Jangchub Ling

‘The Stages of the Path’ is a special presentation of Buddha’s teachings, that modern people are able to easily understand and to practice. This retreat allows us to gain experience of these meditations as presented in ‘The New Meditation Handbook’.

Retreat sessions are unguided and last for an hour and a half. There is no facility fee for this retreat and you can attend as little or as much as you are able to. The retreat is open to everyone but if this is your first experience then if you could arrive 10-15 mins before the session then this will give you an opportunity to familiarise yourself with the format of the session.

Sessions Times: 9.30am,12pm, 5pm and 7.30pm except Thursday which are at 9.30am,12pm and 2.30pm with Melodious Drum at 6.30pm
