Spring retreat 22nd-30th April 2017
As many of you know, Gelek Rimpoche passed away on Wednesday, February 15. We concluded the rituals around his passing on Saturday and everything went very smoothly. In accordance with his wish, we are continuing all courses and retreats.
The retreat will be led by his senior students, and the subjects are : ‘How The Mind Works’ and ‘Precious Human Life’.
We are hoping to invite Chungtsang Rinpoche, hopefully he will be with us during the retreat.
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.
