Film about Gelek Rimpoche
"American Rimpoche: A Tibetan Lama in the 21th century"
The American Rimpoche is a biographical film about Gelek Rimpoche, a former Tibetan monk now citizen of the United States. The film interweaves conversations with him, his students and key players in America’s adoption of Tibetan Buddhism.
The film will be shown on the Buddhist Film Festival in Amsterdam on 4 October 2014.
Open meditation evenings
For those who are interested in meditation or who want to meditate together with others: every Friday night (holidays excluded) there is an open meditation evening in the Jewel Heart Center from 20:00 – 21:00 hrs. Doors open at 19:30 hrs.
The meditation is led by senior students. We practice breathing mindfulness meditation, walking and listening meditation or visualisations. These nights are great to find your own ''breathing space'' and calm your mind.
On 3 October 2014 there will be no meeting because of the public talk by Alfred Woll.
