Pubblicato il


The retreat is open to everyone, it is not necessary to have previous experiences of meditation. Every day there will be two Dharma talks, two guided meditations, a question and answer session and the possibility, compatibly with the number of participants, to have individual interviews with the teachers and it will be possible, for those who wish, to participate every day in a Qi Gong lesson led by Debora Drigani. During the retreat the rule of the Noble Silence will be observed. Being able to devote to intensive practice in a marvelous context like that of the Lama Tzong Khapa Institute, represents a precious opportunity to gather and cultivate one’s mind-heart with care. It is this commitment, this love that we turn to ourselves that allows us to take care of others with more awareness and effectiveness and to bring a concrete change in our lives and in the community to which we belong.
