The EC has grown over the last year and the Summer Course will grow this year. Lucky enough, this year for the first time we had much more space to host the friends and for the team to have meetings all over the place.
Since the Summer Course is going to take place one week earlier than usual this year and we will be able to welcome H.H. the 17th Karmapa Trinley Thaye Dorje, Jigme Rinpche, Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche and Lama Ole Nydahl along with many guests for the inauguration of the new buildings and two weeks packed with program, many details in its organization need to be adapted accordingly.
But that’s by far not the only thing that will be very different this year. In time for the course, the rooms in the new building are going to be ready for use. And what better way to inaugurate them on a practical level than by hosting our highest teachers in their new rooms and friends from all over the world doing their Summer course teams’ work for the course inside of them! There will be meeting rooms, laundry kitchen, accommodation and more for parts of the team in the new building.
Also nice to know for everyone coming for the summer course: our beautiful new gompa will be open for everyone to do their personal meditation practice also during the course. Below on the ground floor, the course’s Dharma shops of the course will transform our Pub into a shopping paradise.
The Summer Course team is ready for the building-up weekends and warmly invites everyone to join them for the joyful building up of 2015′s International Summer Course at the Europe Center!
