He took refuge with Lama Ole Nydahl in 1980, and in 1988 he started to translate Lama Ole’s lectures and books.  At the request of Lama Ole, he began giving lectures in 1992.

10 years of EC celebrations PLUS Buddhism in daily life – a weekend with Gerd Boll

Dearest friends.

Believe it or not: it’s been 10 years of the Europe Center in Allgäu this weekend!

10 years ago on March 26, 2007, the contract for the purchase of Gut Hochreute was signed – and the rest is history, which we are going to present to you in a beautiful photo exhibition in the pub, as well as with a presentation on Sunday.

The whole weekend will be full of lectures, activity and celebrations with Diamond Way teacher Gerd Boll. A longterm student of Lama Ole and father of six children, Gerd owns and manages an organic farm in Northern Germany. His lively lectures are full of examples and practical advice for Buddhist practice in everyday life.

AND because the weather will be awesome and Gerd knows a thing or two about joyful outdoor activity, you are warmly invited to join our Saturday morning outdoor action with Gerd and the EC’s outdoor team!

Lectures: 6€ entry

You are still welcome to register by emailing join@europe-center.org. Looking forward to celebrating with you!
