Learn to Meditate

Sunday 24 January 2021 15:00–17:30pm

Learning to meditate - an enrichment for all. This course explains in a practical way the basics and functions of meditation from A-Z. During this afternoon, you will learn simple meditations that you can continue to practice independently at home. You will also receive practical advice on how to influence your everyday life through your newly acquired inner peace.

The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. When our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and mental unhappiness, and thus will experience true happiness. However, if our mind is not peaceful, it becomes very difficult to be happy. Even if we live in the best conditions. So meditation becomes the tool for inner happiness & freedom.

Meditation and Mantra

Sunday 14 March 2021 15:00–17:30pm

with Ulrike Allmann

"Mantra", which simply means "protection for the mind", is a special method of creating inner protection from suffering and getting closer to the pure inner qualities we desire. By reciting mantras, we create a connection with enlightened states of mind and can quickly overcome any negativity or difficult situation. Discover the calming and inspiring power of these special words.
During this beginner course you will be introduced to the powerful practice of mantra meditation. With these practices you will create a real space of refuge and peace within your own mind.

Learn to meditate

Sunday 2 May 2021

with Gen Kelsang Devi

Meditieren lernen – eine Bereicherung für alle. Dieser Kurs erklärt praxisnah die Grundlagen und Funktionen der Meditation von A–Z. Erlerne an diesem Nachmittag einfache Meditationen, die du zu Hause selbständig weiter üben kannst und erhalte praktische Ratschläge, wie man durch die neugewonnene innere Ruhe, den Alltag beeinflussen kann. Sinn und Zweck der Meditation ist es, unseren Geist ruhig und friedvoll werden zu lassen. Wenn unser Geist friedvoll ist, werden wir frei von Sorgen und geistigem Unwohlsein sein und werden so wahres Glück erfahren. Ist unser Geist jedoch nicht friedvoll, wird es sehr schwierig, glücklich zu sein. Selbst wenn wir unter den besten Bedingungen leben. So wird die Meditation zum Werkzeug für inneres Glück & Freiheit.
