Courses and retreats


The New Kadampa tradition of Buddhism offers a balance between study and retreat. At Joyful Land’s in-depth day courses particular topics are investigated in detail in order to understand the precious teachings with clarity. Through retreat we gain the experience of meditating on these teachings to increase our familiarity so they may be even more beneficial in our daily lives.
