Whoever hadn’t seen the new Europe Center buildings got his or her chance at the Open House day with tours of the premises, the new buildings, the villa and of course the possibility to try a meditation as well.
The potato salad was a class of its own. Along with coffee and cake, it was the perfect lunch for sitting in the sun on the new terrace in front of the cafe. Lots of lively exchange between visitors and Buddhists everywhere, with many questions answered and lots of laughter in between. Introductory talks and guided meditations in our beautiful meditation hall under the old roof of the barn were one option, the guided tours of the old and new buildings were another. There was even the possibility for a glance through one of the open windows of the new building to get an impression of how the inhabitants of the Europe Center live their everyday lives.
Of course, for those who missed this chance of getting to know the Europe Center and Diamond Way Buddhism and take part in a meditation, it is not too late: every Thursday at 7pm, anyone is welcome to join an introductory talk and the guided meditation in German language afterwards.
