Kicking of the Summer Course preparations!
As every year, the Summer Course team had its first meeting in January – never too early to start planning what’s to come in August!
No matter when or how often the Summer Course team comes to the EC, it’s always a very special atmosphere. Many old friends are happy to meet again and gain some new friends as well every time. It really feels like a family reunion. And this family reunion was crowned by a skype call with Lama Ole. Asked what his wish for the theme of this year’s Summer Course would be, he advised us to let the sangha decide, and this is of course what we will do. Stay tuned!
This time, many team members came a few days earlier to take part in the Phowa meditation for their late good friend and Summer Course veteran Peter. We were sad about losing such a wonderful friend of course, but as had been Peter’s explicit wish, we had a great party Saturday night on his behalf: music from the 80s he enjoyed, Barbeque with steaks at the snow bar especially constructed for the night – and so much friendship, joy and pretty wild dancing all night long!
The weekend was filled with team work and laughter in every corner of the Europe Center – so the planning for this year’s Summer Course is now well under way. You are very welcome to join the Big Summer Course Team Meeting with lectures by Diamond Way teachers Maike Brill and Rob Sok in April, here’s all the info:
