MORE DETAILS

THE TEACHER – Lama Thierry, a Swiss "yogi" will guide us in this training. After twelve years as a Buddhist monk (6 of them in retreat), Lama-la now resides at our center. He speaks from his own experience, finds vibrant everyday examples that we can identify with, and refers to his extensive knowledge of the Tibetan scriptures on the subject.

THE EXPERIENCE – The Buddhist mind training known as Lojong is a complete toolbox, full of easy-to-use exercises and methods to strengthen our compassion and bodhicitta. By learning how to focus and calm our mind with the meditation technique "shamata", we create a sound foundation to ground our mind training on. This simple, yet effective technique teaches us to direct our awareness, rather than being carried away by thoughts. Thereby we become able to use our mind in a more beneficial way for ourselves and others.
