The UK Dharma Celebration (UKDC) is a special course on Buddhism and meditation that explains how to apply Buddha’s teachings (Dharma) to modern living. The UKDC is a precious opportunity to study and practise the special presentation of modern Buddhism taught by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, the Founder of the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union.
Taught by the National Spiritual Director of the UK Kadam Bridget Heyes, the Celebration is a holiday with a difference – giving you a chance to break free from the hectic routines of daily life and focus on the things that really matter.
