A forest retreat

Teacher Gen Kelsang Delek


Surrey Nature Centre
14225 Green Timbers Way


Gen Kelsang Delek, the Resident Teacher of KMC Fraser Valley, has been studying and practicing in the Kadampa Tradition for 30 years.  She is loved by her students for her kindness, sincere example, and the clarity of her teachings.

About the course

Get away from your normal daily routine and enjoy teachings and meditations in the serenity and peace of Green Timbers Urban Forest.

Gen Delek will explain and guide a sequence of time-honoured meditations called taking and giving. These meditations are powerful methods for developing love, compassion and wisdom that heal both mind and body. The practice of taking and giving helps us transform self-centred attitudes; develop the good heart of compassion, our Buddha nature; and even heal physical illness.

Everyone is welcome to this short retreat.
