Learn to Meditate

Juni 28   14:30 – 17:30

We all have the potential to experience a deep sense of connection, warmth and compassion for others, for our partners, family, friends and others. On this course you will learn three very practical, inspiring and transformative meditations that will help you to increase your love and compassion for others. Through these meditations, we can experience for ourselves that the more our compassion for others grows, the happier we become. We will find that our problems – especially in our relationships – will dissolve because of this special attitude.

The Healing Meditations of Medicine Buddha

July 11 (Daycourse)

Medicine Buddha is a Buddha doctor whose function is to free living beings from external and internal illness. How? Through his blessings. If we sincerely rely on the medicine guru in these impure times, we can be healed of serious physical and mental illness and released from the inner pain of the three poisons – attachment, anger and ignorance. We also receive a special physical, verbal and spiritual power to help others through healing actions. Gen Ananda will lead three meditations in connection with the Medicine Buddha Sadhana in this meditation course.
