The workshop is dedicated to the finalizing of the construction works on the Second Stupa. During this time you can also join us for the workshop on preparing Tsa Tsa and Mantra rolls for filling this Stupa. Another precious substance to prepare for the stupa is sang powder and collecting its ingredients will be another part of our collective activity.
The Vajra Dance is a meditation in movement. The simple, slow and fluid movements relax the body, clear the mind, and relieve the tensions of our daily life.
Through dancing we activate and coordinate specific energy points in our body according to an ancient knowledge of channels and chakras. In this way the Vajra Dance dissolves energy blocks, harmonizes the three main aspects of our being – body, energy and mind – and develops presence and awareness.
This is an open retreat, for everyone interested. In this retreat we will learn how to use suffering and happiness on the Path of Awakening, and how to turn them into the Path of Awakening, both through relative truth and through absolute truth, in the context of the Lojongs (mind trainings) of the Dzogchen Menngagdé (Series of Pith Instructions) and a teaching by Jigme Tenpai Nyima, the Third Dodrub Chen Rinpoche.

The classical Tibetan language is an indispensable tool for all those interested in Buddhism, Tibetan traditions, sciences and culture. Not only does it preserve and transmit most of Indian Buddhist literature in translation, but it is also the expressive instrument of Tibetan Masters, yogis and scholars of great erudition and realisation of all times.
