Part 1: 22. to 26.7.

Lojong "Freeing the mind from poison" (on site + live online)

In these crisis-ridden times, no one really needs to explain to us what afflictive emotions are. But why are greed, hatred and delusion so difficult to overcome? Through challenging verses of mind training (blo sbyong), Rinpoche will show us what a self-centered attitude can do to us and our environment. But also how we can free ourselves from it and thereby gain much more happiness and relaxation. He will draw on rare textual treasures that have been translated into German by Dr. Cornelia Weishaar-Günter under the guidance of Dagyab Rinpoche.

Time | Start: Friday 6 pm, End: Tuesday 5 pm

Regular 195 Euro | Members 115 Euro | Reduced 80 Euro; in each case plus accommodation and meals (when participating on site)

 

Part 2: 27. to 30.7.

Kriya Tantra Wang Akshobhya with nine deities (only on site)

Zong Rinpoche gives a Kriya Tantra Wang into the practice of Buddha Akshobhya with nine deities, followed by commentary teachings. The connection with Akshobhya is considered
as a particularly effective purification practice, especially in times of crisis and transition. This empowerment can be taken as an entry point into the tantric path.
