Balajit

For several years, Balajit has been regularly leading retreats at the Vajraloka Buddhist Retreat Centre in North Wales. He also runs meditation workshops and events across the Uk and in Ireland. His teaching places particular emphasis on how developing a felt connection with the ground and body awareness, support the deepening of meditation and mindfulness. 

He also focuses on exposing and loosening assumptions and views we hold that limit us in our everyday lives – with a range of exercises and techniques to help make this happen.
