Personal Meditation Practice & 10 Minute Talk

Date: May 21, 2017 1:00 PM

Location: Thoiry, France

We will do our own individual meditations (e.g. 16th Karmapa, Ngondro, 8th Karmapa or short refuge). If you have not started an individual meditation yet and would like to, we can give you an explanation. We will start with a 10 minute talk on a buddhist topic. This will be followed by personal meditation together, and then we can take some time to chat and answer your questions.

Contact Gretchen at heyculture@gmail.com for directions from the bus stop, driving, or carpooling options with other friends coming from Geneva.
