Teacher

Gen Delek is a Western Buddhist nun and resident teacher of KMC Fraser Valley, who has been studying and practising Kadampa Buddhism for 30 years. She is loved by her students for her kindness, sincere example, and the clarity of her teachings.

About the course

Our mind’s true nature is like a clear sky, but so often it’s clouded by our busy, uncontrolled and sometimes negative thoughts.

In the quiet of Edenvale retreat centre we will learn to experience the clarity and peace of our own mind. Gen Delek will explain how to eliminate distractions and engage in clear and joyful meditations – meditations that will help us step into the new year with confidence and hope.

To help us let go of our busy external world, settle our mind, and get the most out of this precious time on retreat, there will be silence from Friday 10:00pm until Sunday after the second session.
