Introduction Evening: 37 Practices of Bodhisattvas

Wednesday, July 10th, 2024 • 7pm-8pm (Europe/London) • Online (Zoom)


Join us on Wednesday 10th July 2024, from 7-8pm (UK time) for an open evening introducing the themes of our upcoming 6-day retreat led by David Oromith.

This session will provide an introduction to the profoundly transformative and highly revered 14th-century Tibetan Buddhist text, The Thirty-Seven Practices of Bodhisattvas by Gyalse Tokme Zangpo. 

This text is a classic lojong (mind-training) treatise which gives advice on how to transform our own life by following the bodhisattva path. Lojong is about transforming all of life’s daily experiences into the path, rather than seeing them as obstacles to our spiritual practice. 

This session is also a chance to get to know David and gain a better understanding of what to expect on the upcoming 6 day retreat in which we’ll be exploring this transformative text.

Come with your questions and curiosities, we look forward to seeing you then!

“I am delighted that David Oromith will be leading the CCN’s Annual 6-Day Summer Retreat focusing on Transforming Adversity into Awakening.

In these times it is essential that we transform all that we encounter in our daily lives and the world around us into the spiritual path.

Focusing on the 14th-century Buddhist Text, The Thirty-Seven Practices of Bodhisattvas by Gyalse Tokme Zangpo, this will be an excellent opportunity to be guided on the bodhisattva path.

With greater compassion we can be transformed and transform the world around us.

This retreat will surely be of great benefit to all who can participate.”

– Lama Alan Wallace

Time & Location

The Teacher

David Oromith is the Operations Officer for the CCN, as well as co-founder of Samadhi. He is a Buddhist contemplative and meditation guide with a background in mental health services. Having practised meditation since the age of 18, his journey into Buddhism began through personal struggles with depression and anxiety, leading him to the Buddha’s teachings. 

David has studied under various teachers, with Lama Alan as his root guru, and is influenced by Tibetan Buddhism among other traditions, recognising the value and benefit of multiple points-of-view. He focuses on meditation training and core, practical Buddhist principles in his teachings. He is the author of the book A Practical Guide to Mindful Living and leads several retreats across the UK every year, as well as teaching online and in person across South Wales. 

David’s engaging style is clear, practical, and relatable, hoping to make ancient practices applicable to modern life. He envisions and works towards the establishment of the Samadhi Eco Retreat Centre as a community for spiritual development.
