A peaceful meditation retreat based in the Buddhist teachings of 'loving kindness' and held in the stunningly beautiful Alpujarras mountains of Andalucia, southern Spain. The centre, Cortijo Romero, is a peaceful placed for those wishing to take space from their lives and reflect, and to share the week with a group of likeminded people.

This introduction to the Mahayana tradition explores how we can benefit ourselves and others in everyday life. It includes discussions and practical advice on authentic and proven meditative practices; methods to deal with strong emotions such as anger, depression and desire; and how to cultivate wisdom and compassion to benefit yourself and others. A visit to Osel Ling Buddhist Retreat Centre (shown in the photo) and daily chi gong breathing exercises are woven into the programme.
