Retreat Report: Jampa Ling Sesshin, August 2012.

Thanks and congratulations to all who attended our Summer weekend retreat at Jampa Ling Buddhist Centre, Co Cavan, this weekend past.

There was an excellent turnout with 18 participants showing up for the schedule of zazen, kinhin, samu and talks. A note of respect and admiration is due to those residents of the men's dormitory who delivered a surprise masterclass in snoring techniques on both nights (her hee, I'm still recovering... and I was only there for one night!)

The Jampa Ling facilities were excellent, and the staff were very helpful, so thank-you to all at Jampa Ling. Thanks are due also to Eilis who organised a wonderful vegetarian menu for the weekend.

We were able provide this event at low cost as it was run on a non-profit basis: So special thanks too to Peter Rocca Sensei for freely giving up his time to take bookings for the event, and for attending to lead the retreat.

Hopefully we'll be back at Jampa Ling in the near future for other such events. Watch this space!
