Caty Hartung and Tomek Lehnert took the time to share their experiences, from their many years on the road and in the air with Lama Ole.
We started off with a lecture about the student and teacher relationship by Tomek, followed by questions and answers with both he & Caty. We got to know how Caty and Tomek became students of Lama Ole, and how and why they started to travel with him around the world until today.
During the lectures on Saturday we talked about fearlessness, highest joy and active compassion and heard exciting stories about trust in the Lama. In the evening we squeezed Caty and Tomek with more questions and were inspired by a selection of pictures that were taken over the last 20 years. On Sunday morning they shared some of the challenges they had on their way and how they dealt with them.
Rounding up every session with a meditation on the 16th Karmapa was very fitting!
Thanks to the Czech cooking crew and the joyful activity of all the friends who helped here and there, the atmosphere was very relaxed and on top there was time to get to know each other better. Caty and Tomek let us take part in their lives and gave us great inspiration, by showing how a student can identify with the Lamas’ qualities and out of this identification, the hard work can be full of joy and fun.
