Vipassana meditation retreat in full silence
With Dungsey Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche
December 26, 2016 - January 1, 2017
RIC, Niederwangen (Bern), Switzerland – Annual Ripa International Winter Retreat
Approaching emptiness and the nature of reality
The experience of emptiness is one of the most puzzling aspects of Buddha’s teachings; while we can intuitively relate to the truth of impermanence to some extent, it is difficult for most of us to understand the notion of emptiness which is often likened to a big vacuum or some sort of state of deprivation; yet, according to Buddha’s teachings, the experience of emptiness plays a central role in liberating beings from pain and suffering.
During this end-of-year retreat, Dungsey Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoché will guide participants into exploring the experience of emptiness as the key insight into transforming our lives. Building on basic teachings and guided practice, he will train participants into developing “ways of looking” that help free the mind from conceptual fabrication.
