In the lands of miraculous snow mountains and bitter sweet frost, one star-lit Friday night the Czech and Lithuanian armies rolled in together for an (un)usual country weekend at the EC.
It all began with an inspiring Q&A session by Jan Matuska followed by a chill-out party in the Baucafe. No one can tell for sure, was it the enchanting Lithuanian specialties, the knock-out Czech DJ or the perfect blend of Czech and Lithuanian vibes, but eventually it all turned into a restless dance party till 4am!
The beautiful Saturday morning was promising an impressive day, full of adventures while hiking in the mountains, meditating together, eating exquisite national dishes and laughing our heads off during the presentation session. This time both of the countries decided to present each other and show how they perceive each others buddhist history, “celebrities” and national peculiarities. In the evening, Caty answered questions about the EC and its future plans, followed by talks by Czech buddhist teachers. The Lithuanian teachers unfortunately were no-shows this time, but they had their own reasons, including illnesses and even giving birth! The amusing day was rounded up as usual at the Baucafe getting together in Czech style, which included testing drinks and dancing to Czech (and some other) tunes, which lasted until another early morning…
Sunday was a chill-out day, comprised of a beautiful stormy-winter-Allgäu morning, meditating together (which is the best and most inspiring way to create bonds), cleaning and saying good-byes. The time came to leave and everyone could not help but wonder, how to get back as soon as possible to the beautiful EC.
