Becoming Radically Happy
A User’s Guide to the Mind
13th – 15th November 2020
About this Retreat
We are delighted to announce that Erric Solomon, the co-authour of ‘Radically Happy’ with Phakchok Rinpoche, will lead an online retreat for Gomde UK, 13th –15th November 2020.

Registration is now open.


In these turbulent times we need to reclaim ourselves; to take hold of what is rightfully ours: our minds. This will help us find stability and happiness from within and support a clear navigation of the current social turmoil in a very different way.

Erric Solomon has an infectious enthusiasm that makes meditation simple, never boring, magical and applicable. This perfect combination encourages us to train and thereby see real results in our daily lives. The retreat is very experiential, with exercises, insights and guided meditation. In all it provides a very special tool kit that we can apply and practice to develop familiarity with the untapped rich resources of our mind.
Retreat Schedule
The event will begin with a talk on Friday evening and conclude midday on Sunday. Friday evening is an open group, designed as a taster session for anyone who is interested in exploring and finding out more as well as an introduction to the weekend teaching.

The Radically Happy programme
The Radically Happy programme has been carefully developed over several years by Phakchok Rinpoche and Erric Solomon.

“Phakchok Rinpoche has been trained in the traditional Buddhist wisdom culture and has a deep understanding of the mind and how it functions. At the same time, having lived and travelled all over the US and Europe, Rinpoche is also very familiar with modern life. Erric Solomon not only has a science and business background but also spent years studying the ancient wisdom tradition of Tibet. Together they wrote a book that is perfectly adapted to the modern mindset— which is constantly overwhelmed by the frantic pace of our world. In these times, we have lost the root of happiness. Rinpoche and Solomon guide us to discover the authentic basis of happiness, and it’s compassionate, loving expression. Radically Happy is an essential guide to getting the most out of your heart and mind, which will help make our world a better place.” – Tsoknyi Rinpoche

More about Erric Solmon
Being completely present brings a basic contentment. Caring for others as we would care for ourselves brings a sense of interconnection and meaning into our lives. Making this slight, yet radical, shift in our perspective, frees our mind, brings joy and has the potential to transform the world. – Erric Solomon

Throughout his career as a Silicon Valley technology entrepreneur, and now as an author and innovative meditation teacher, Erric has been interested in understanding the mind and how it functions, both as a user experience designer and as a mind hacker.
