With Shamar Rinpoche, Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche, and Lama Ole teaching thousands of students in Southern Germany, Salzburg, Hamburg and Frankfurt during the last weeks, we had some unusually quiet days at the EC.
Those of us who stayed used the time to focus on meditation, work, spending quality time with friends and family and listening to the live streamings from the courses. The golden Allgäu autumn with still summer-like temperatures and lots of sunshine gave the perfect setting for that. Some brave ones are even still going for daily swims in the Alpsee lake! ;-)
Susan and Chris from Calgary in Canada gave us an insight on Diamond Way Buddhism in Canada, sharing some inspiring photos and stories from past and present. They came to visit the EC, along with a dozen of other friends from different parts of the world after the Salzburg course.
Slowly the focus is shifting to getting the EC ready for winter. The first snow already fell on the neighbouring mountains – or was that the last snow of the past season? ;-) So we will shake and climb the apple trees in the yard, make our famous EC apple juice, and engage in some extensive fire wood chopping this weekend. Come and join if you like, all help is welcome to get our home winter-ready.
The more quiet times will be over again soon anyway. Coming up are the Transmission Weekend about the Kagyu Masters of the Mahamudra transmission lineage as well as the Nordic Country Weekend. If you would like to come for one of these events, please register here.
