Celebrating the stupas in the Europe Center and in Basel

According to the wish of Lopön Tsechu Rinpoche, we got together to celebrate the birthday of the seven Stupas that were inaugurated in Zürich in 2001.

Motorbikers Weekend

Our historical first motorbike weekend was far beyond our expectations. It was amazing to share the colorful storytelling on Friday and Saturday. Seeing the arrival biker friends – 41 friends with their wide range of motorbike types with maaaany horsepower – and having the great Saturday´s evening barbecue definitely brought joyful atmosphere in the Europe Center.

Open house at the Europe Center

More than 300 visitors took advantage of the sunny weather, to get in contact with us. They enjoyed our offers like introductory rounds in the meditation hall, followed by a short meditation, or guided tours through the villa, as well as an information table and of course food and beverages as well as a lot of chatting and connecting.

Diamond Way Teacher Julie Fallon

Our first course with a Diamond Way teacher in 2018 was a wonderful one as well! Lovely Julie meditated with us and shared her knowledge, including inspiring insights from her work on the books of Hannah Nydahl.

Dive in! Meditation Days

Following our Lama’s wish, we started the new year with a new series of events at the EC: Diving in deeper! Getting together and meditating together!

Summer Course 2017: Day 14

Nedo Rinpoche gave us another precious empowerment on the last day of this year’s Summer Course: the initiation into White Liberatrice (Skt. Sita Tara, Tib. Dolkar). After the empowerment, Lama Ole touched us deeply with his closing speech

Summer Course 2017: Day 13

Today Nedo Rinpoche gave his first ever empowerment at the Europe Center: the initation into Diamond Mind (Skt. Vajrasattva Tib. Dorje Sempa), the united purifying power of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas of all times and directions.

Summer Course 2017: Day 8

On Monday Sherab Gyaltsen gave the Sojong vows for the coming 24 hours to those who wished to take it. What followed was an intense day of meditation practice and an enriching experience of acting with greater awareness than usual.
