The "Ripa Awareness Meditation" method was conceived by the master of Tibetan Buddhism, Gyétrul Jigmé Rinpoche to benefit his students around the world. It is a simple and effective method that helps stabilize the mind, using the Shamatha technique or calm-abiding meditation; once the mind has settled, the application of Vipassana meditation tools allows the practitioner to gain access to more subtle aspects of his mind, thus allowing him a true exploration of the nature of phenomena and reality.
There is an ongoing practice for students of all levels, newcomers and long time students alike, at the Ripa International Center. The practice is led by Amrit Wagner, an approved meditation instructor under the guidance of Dungsey Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche. For more information on the weekly RAM sittings, please contact: amrit.wagner@gmx.ch [post_title] => Learn to meditate - Ripa Awareness Meditation (RAM) [post_excerpt] => “The only way to know mind and to attain wisdom is through meditation. In repose, in space, in silent time, answers can come. Wisdom and insight wash away problems. Transformation occurs in stillness. Through the practice of mindfulness, the elementary harmony that creates wind horse – the Tibetan expression for positive energy – is created. Relaxation will then translate into everyday life and bring benefits. Internal change will bring external change. When we are clear and equipped with insight, we are in a place to help others. It is by developing wisdom and compassion that we are able to be of the greatest assistance to others…. compassion heals.” – Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => learn-to-meditate [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2018-09-17 10:19:45 [post_modified_gmt] => 2018-09-17 10:19:45 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://ripa.wpengine.com/?post_type=program&p=29 [menu_order] => 20161116 [post_type] => program [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) [1] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 8676 [post_author] => 4 [post_date] => 2018-09-19 11:10:22 [post_date_gmt] => 2018-09-19 11:10:22 [post_content] => Public lecture and teachings, also with Mr Javier Garcia Campayo, hosted by Padma Ling Spain in Zaragosa.

Over 2,500 years ago, Sakyamuni Buddha laid down the foundations of a philosophy and a methodology to study the mind, whose main pillar was the practice of meditation. Driven by the aspiration to find a way to put an end to suffering, he found - through the practice of meditation - the source of suffering and the key to put a definite end to suffering.

In recent decades, the practice of meditation has generated growing interest among health professionals as an effective tool to cultivate mental and emotional well-being. Scientifically proven studies show that as short as ten minutes of daily practice helps to reduce stress and regulate emotional responses to difficult circumstances.

Ven. Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche and Dr Javier Garcia Campayo will talk about science and tradition, with a special emphasis on the following aspects:

 -      What are the philosophical and empirical bases that Buddhism proposes for a science of the study of the mind?

-      What are some of the most relevant neuroscientific discoveries about meditation in recent decades?

-    What is the purpose of meditation, yesterday and today?

An experiential perspective from Early Buddhism Mindfulness is en-vogue. While Mindfulness is being adopted by the modern world, many of the more subtle and critical aspects of the practice are overlooked and being lost. Very few know where Mindfulness comes from, how it was understood in the context of Early Buddhist practice, in which larger context mindfulness was practiced, and to what end.
The Satipatthana Sutra is well known as the main source for Buddhist teachings on mindfulness and its place in the Buddhist path, and is hailed as the direct path to realization. In this short retreat, we will use Bhikkhu Analayo’s translation of the Sutra, in conjunction with his instructions on how to practice, with the aim to explore deeper the original source of Mindfulness and benefit from its power for deep transformation. Diego Hangartner completed his studies in pharmacology at the ETHZurich, specializing in psychopharmacology and addiction. He lived for 11 years in Dharamsala, India, learned Tibetan, and studied for 7 years at the Institute of Buddhist Dialectics in the Tibetan language. He has completed multiple meditation retreats of several months, worked as an interpreter, translating Tibetan into many languages, and published several books. On returning to Europe, he taught widely, and organized many large events with His Holiness the Dalai Lama. He participates in research aimed at exploring the benefits of meditation as a long-term practitioner. Diego is associated with and worked for the Mind and Life Institute since the 1990’s: he was Mind and Life’s COO from 2009 – 2012 in the USA, founded Mind and Life Europe in 2008, and was its director until 2015. His teachers include His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Khamtul Rinpoche, Jigme Khyentse Rinpoche, Mingyur Rinpoche and Bhikkhu Analayo – with each spending many years of close study.

Mindfulness and awareness work together to bring acceptance of living situations as they are. Life is not regarded as source of rejection or indulgence, but rather as the food of awareness and mindfulness; the depression and excitement that go on in life become the very object of meditation!
During this end-of-year retreat Rinpoche will unfold and guide participants through the key elements that help us in this process. Gathered under the Ripa Awareness Meditation method, they bring in Shamata's Buddhist tools – a millennial breathing technique that helps develop mental calm – and introduces aspects of Vipassana meditation, or penetrating vision, that help us develop “ways of looking” that free the mind from conceptual fabrication.

Normal Price : CHF 320.– CHF / € 275.– Reduced Price *: CHF 240.–  / € 210.– (*students, seniors, unemployed or members of Ripa and Padma Ling)

The "Ripa Awareness Meditation" method was conceived by the master of Tibetan Buddhism, Gyétrul Jigmé Rinpoche to benefit his students around the world. It is a simple and effective method that helps stabilize the mind, using the Shamatha technique or calm-abiding meditation; once the mind has settled, the application of Vipassana meditation tools allows the practitioner to gain access to more subtle aspects of his mind, thus allowing him a true exploration of the nature of phenomena and reality.
There is an ongoing practice for students of all levels, newcomers and long time students alike, at the Ripa International Center. The practice is led by Amrit Wagner, an approved meditation instructor under the guidance of Dungsey Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche. For more information on the weekly RAM sittings, please contact: amrit.wagner@gmx.ch [post_title] => Learn to meditate - Ripa Awareness Meditation (RAM) [post_excerpt] => “The only way to know mind and to attain wisdom is through meditation. In repose, in space, in silent time, answers can come. Wisdom and insight wash away problems. Transformation occurs in stillness. Through the practice of mindfulness, the elementary harmony that creates wind horse – the Tibetan expression for positive energy – is created. Relaxation will then translate into everyday life and bring benefits. Internal change will bring external change. When we are clear and equipped with insight, we are in a place to help others. It is by developing wisdom and compassion that we are able to be of the greatest assistance to others…. compassion heals.” – Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => learn-to-meditate [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2018-09-17 10:19:45 [post_modified_gmt] => 2018-09-17 10:19:45 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://ripa.wpengine.com/?post_type=program&p=29 [menu_order] => 20161116 [post_type] => program [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) [comment_count] => 0 [current_comment] => -1 [found_posts] => 6 [max_num_pages] => 0 [max_num_comment_pages] => 0 [is_single] => [is_preview] => [is_page] => [is_archive] => 1 [is_date] => [is_year] => [is_month] => [is_day] => [is_time] => [is_author] => [is_category] => [is_tag] => [is_tax] => [is_search] => [is_feed] => [is_comment_feed] => [is_trackback] => [is_home] => [is_404] => [is_embed] => [is_paged] => [is_admin] => [is_attachment] => [is_singular] => [is_robots] => [is_posts_page] => [is_post_type_archive] => 1 [query_vars_hash:WP_Query:private] => 8e29545f98c8fd64e305383e9ab75b43 [query_vars_changed:WP_Query:private] => [thumbnails_cached] => [stopwords:WP_Query:private] => [compat_fields:WP_Query:private] => Array ( [0] => query_vars_hash [1] => query_vars_changed ) [compat_methods:WP_Query:private] => Array ( [0] => init_query_flags [1] => parse_tax_query ) )
