We don’t have to follow our bliss, because in reality bliss follows us!
Every aspect of our existence is permeated by bliss. However, out of habit, we misunderstand the very essence of who we really are. We are distracted by mind’s projections instead of resting in mind’s nature. True Bliss isn’t an experience, experiences come and go. But authentic bliss is always available. This bliss (called Mahasukha in Sanskrit or Dewa Chenpo in Tibetan) transcends circumstances and conditions; it is the indestructible nature of our being.
First we need to come to see how to transform our ordinary way of relating to ourselves and our world; we can begin to See Bliss as the nature of experience. Then, rather than chasing after bliss, we can learn to Be Bliss. In other words, we can uncover the superpower we already possess: blissful awareness.

Erric Solomon worked for many years in the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. There he developed his interest in understanding the human mind and how it works. So he found a way to Buddhism and learned from spiritual masters such as Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche and Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche. Erric Solomon speaks English, it will be translated.
With the current pandemic in mind, we are even more committed to offering opportunities for practicing compassion and learning how to live mindfully in harmony with others.
If you can, please also take your own mask with you.
Once you arrive, the Gomde team will inform you about the hygiene measures that you should follow in and outside the house. Don't worry - if we all help together, this seminar will work out well.
We are so happy that we can offer this seminar at Gomde. We want to support all of you who cannot be here at Gomde to attend the Dharma teachings and practices. Therefore, we will be broadcasting the seminar live on Zoom, especially so that those of you who cannot come to Gomde are still able to participate.
All sessions will be streamed live via zoom in the Central European Standard Time (CEST). However, participants can join from all over the world as recordings of each session will be made accessible after each session.
There will be a WhatsApp group for all online participants to exchange experience and stay up to date. Also, participants will be encouraged to ask questions via the Zoom chat, which will then be included in the seminar.
For registration for the online seminar, please choose „online“ as your option of accommodation in the registration form.
