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 22 November there will be no meeting because of Rimpoche's public talk visit.
