Together again, let’s get it started! As every year at the beginning of the International Summer Course, all team members came together in the big gompa.
Thanks to the yearly lake festival in Bühl, just one night after the lunar eclipse, we were able to welcome Lama Ole and the friends arriving for the Summercourse with some really beautiful fireworks – we hope you enjoy the impressions!
“The most efficient, joyful and relaxed Summer Course buildup for years” was the comment heard a lot the last week – and it was!
Last night we were lucky enough to witness this century’s longest lunar eclipse, a so-called blood moon. From a Buddhist point of view, this is a wonderful chance for meditation and making wishes. Here’s why.
The second Summer Course building up weekend proved the power of joyful effort and great teamwork.
Another amazing, powerful weekend that strengthened many friendships at the EC. The Building-Up Phase of the Summer Course has started! We asked some friends to share their impressions with us. This is the outcome…
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.
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.
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.
A wonderful time with Lama Ole was this year’s Transmission Weekend, which again attracted Buddhists from all over the world to listen to Buddha`s highest teachings given by Lama Ole.
