Spring Visit Gelek Rimpoche: 22nd-30th April 2017
Due to health issues, Gelek Rimpoche was unable to attend the Spring and Fall retreats in the Netherlands in 2016. However, he expressed a clear intent to teach in Nijmegen in April 2017. Although he will not be able to teach more than two hours a day, we are looking forward to welcoming him in our midst once again. The dates for the retreat are Sat. 22nd - Wed. 26th and Sat. 29th - Sun. 30th April 2017. There will be no teachings on Thursday 27th April (King's Day) and Friday 28th April. The subject of the teachings will be published shortly.
Jewel Heart is committed to ensuring as many opportunities as possible to study and benefit from Gelek Rimpoche’s teachings.
Among them you will find audio and video dharma through digital downloads, transcripts of Gelek Rimpoche’s teachings spanning back to the mid-80’s, and a webcast subscription service providing both live video and on demand audio and video events and teachings by Gelek Rimpoche and other guests.
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.
In principle the meditations are led in Dutch.
