She is a very popular and experienced teacher and her clear and entertaining talks express the path of wisdom and meditation in a way that is ideally suited for people of the modern world. She is greatly cherished by her students for her warm, light and wise example.

Gen Lekma teaches meditation weekly classes, study programmes, day courses and guides retreats in Southampton and surrounding area. She is sometimes invited to guide retreats at other Meditation Centres in UK and abroad.
