Bodhicitta – awakened heart – is an innate quality of everyone. Deep in our hearts we want to help others and we want to live in a peaceful society. In order to realize this, we train this quality by practicing meditation and bodhichitta.


During this weekthün there will be talks, meditation and exchange of our experiences. We will train meditation in practice by mindful cooking and eating. It is possible to sleep in our center.
