Loving kindness and compassion – although all beings have these qualities by nature, we do not always have access to them. In everyday life, we are often overwhelmed by our feelings. In this way, we are neither particularly helpful to ourselves nor to others. In its essence, however, our spirit is open and compassionate. With the help of concrete “tools” we learn to reflect on our innermost being, to nourish this compassionate core and finally to bring it to full development. The Buddhist mind training known as Lojong is a complete toolbox full of easy-to-use exercises and methods to strengthen our compassion and bodhicitta. By learning to focus and calm our mind with the meditation technique “Sh amata”, we create a solid foundation on which we can build our mind training. This simple but effective technique teaches us to direct our consciousness instead of letting our thoughts drive us. This will enable us to use our minds in a more useful way for ourselves and others. An important exercise is Tonglen, the exchange of ourselves with others. We mentally train ourselves to take on the suffering of others and give them our happiness.

By changing our thought patterns, we become more aware of our connection to other beings and can treat them and ourselves more compassionately. This changes the way we deal with our feelings. We become more relaxed, open and gentle.

Lama Thierry

Lama Thierry, a Swiss “yogi”, who now lives in our center after twelve years as a Buddhist monk – 6 of them in retreat – will guide us in this training. He speaks from his own experience, finds vivid examples from everyday life that we can identify with, and refers to his extensive knowledge of Tibetan scriptures on the subject. Schedule The online meditation sessions take place every Tuesday at 7.00 pm via Zoom.
