Last weekend friends from the Diamond Way buddhist center in Cologne/Germany came to present their new project. Their “Maarweg Roadshow” was a great adventure for us. We got to feel the Cologners’ passion about finding a place after eight years of searching for it. We had a chance to discuss their vision, taste the traditional food and drinks and… chorus together „Let’s do it Maaaaarway!”. Surprisingly, at the same time we also had guests from Düsseldorf – it seems those two centers always show up together ;) What to do – we meditated, worked on the EC’s road and had fun together. And now we understand why Lama Ole said “The Maarweg is the first class!”.
After this exciting weekend, thanks to our guest and neighbour, we got to know two centers in Latin America. Macarena and Sebastian fulfilled our wishes and took us on a story-telling trip trough the buddhist center in Buenos Aires/Argentina and the retreat center Karma Dechen Ling (KDL)/Uruguay. Anecdotes about a phowa course in KDL with 200 friends from 20 different countries and a collaboration of Spanish speaking countries touched us deeply. Suddenly everybody felt a connection to our friends on the other continent and wished not only to hear stories and look at photos – but also to visit those places for real one day. And… we are all warmly invited to do so!
