Retreats in 2024 -- Allmuthen

2024 the following five retreats will be offered in Europe Benchen Phuntsok Ling: 


14 days of Individual Retreat (completed)
During the sessions everyone does their own practice, everything else is done in the group as in the other retreats.
14 days of Gönkar Practice (cancelled)
Prerequisite: Gönkar empowerment.
During the Gönkar Retreat the main focus will be to practice the visualisation of the creation phase (kyerim) and to recite mantras. The short puja text for daily practice will be taken for this purpose, instead of the long one used at the summer course.
14 days of Sangye Menla Practice
Medicine Buddha Practice
Prerequisite: Sangye Menla empowerment.
14 days "Seven Points of Mind Training"
Mind training, or lojong, leads to a change from the normal, deluded mind directed toward a self to a fundamentally changed enlightened view directed toward others.
In doing so, one reflects on the fact that others are just like oneself and puts their welfare in the place now occupied by one's own welfare.
A 16-day Nyungne
A set of 8 Nyungne in a row.
Prerequisite: Chenrezig empowerment.
