About the Retreat
Finding Beauty Within
Arran is a beautiful island, we love to visit but always have to return to our ordinary life. On this retreat we look at how to build a beautiful inner space that we can carry into our regular life and that naturally changes our daily experiences. Then we will know for ourselves the transformative power of the mind.
Gen Kelsang Drolkyi is the Resident Teacher at KMC Glasgow and a senior teacher in the New Kadampa Tradition. With over 30 years of experience including 28 years of ordination, she has inspired people worldwide through her knowledge, skill and loving example.
The retreat will take place at The Arran Lodge in Lamlash: The Arran Lodge, Lamlash, Isle of Arran, KA27 8LQ

We recommend booking the following ferry times:
