Lama Dashon's retreat

Entering the final months of his 2 year retreat at the Hermitage

Wed 21 Jun 2023


Today, on the Summer Solstice 2023 Lama Dashon starts the final 6 months of his 2 year retreat at the Hermitage of the Awakened Heart. Tucked away in a meditation hut in a field neighbouring Lama Shenpen's labrang and the Stupa, Lama Dashon has been in retreat since 21st December 2021. And he has the ever growing beard to account for this ;)

He is going strong and focusing his remaining retreat time exclusively on meditation. In the meantime, he is going turn 50 in mid July while in solitude!

If you would like to give him a sense of a community that supports his efforts, you can send him birthday wishes, words of encouragement and/or natural wax candles to: 

The Hermitage (Offering for Lama Dashon), Ynys Graianog, Criccieth, Gwynedd, LL52 0NT, UK

The retreat is supported financially by Sustain Dharma Charity and spiritually by Lama Shenpen and the Awakened Heart Sangha members.
