In response to this time of heightened anxiety and isolation due to the COVID–19 heath crisis, we are offering free online meditation sessions to remain close to our community and help alleviate some of the anxiety and distress caused by this crisis.

“Ripa Awareness Meditation” is a simple and effective method that helps stabilise 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. The method was conceived by the master of Tibetan Buddhism, Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche to benefit his students around the world. RIPA AWARENESS MEDITATION - every Friday at 17:30

No previous meditation experience needed. A progressive cycle of introduction to the Ripa Awareness Meditation method.

The Bardo teachings of Tibetan Buddhism are profound and precious teachings that address both how to approach the transitory, momentary experience of this life and how to use this wisdom to skillfully and intentionally navigate the process of our own dying and rebirth.

In this short introductory course we will contextualize the teachings on the in-between (Bardo means in-between) in the larger teachings of the nature of mind, use the arts to explore the practices and gain a better understanding of why the Bardo teachings are so precious and profound. We will base the instructions on actual practice.

The course will be appropriate for beginners (we will first contextualize the practice) as well as for advanced practitioners (we will then explore the practice from the perspective of the Nature of Mind – the highest teachings in Tibetan Buddhism). Key to understanding the teachings is to know and practice that “we die every day”.

Prices (excl. accommodation): Normal price: CHF 320.– Reduced price*: CHF 290.–

*Students, unemployed, senior and Ripa Sangha members.

The course will be taught in English - the reference material is translated into English. German translation will be offered upon request, only if a sufficient number of participants need it.

The seminar will be maintained with a minimum of 10 participants.

The meditation technique used in this practice is Shiné (or Shamata in Sanskrit) aimed particularly at soothing our mind. The name "Yogom" is a condensed version of YO for yoga, and GOM which means "meditate" in Tibetan. By unbinding tensions, this practice particularly helps to prepare the body and mind before engaging in formal sitting meditation practice. This technique was developed by François Bertolero at the request of the Tibetan Master Gyétrul Jigmé Rinpoche. The workshop will be led by Cynthia Jouffre, yoga teacher in Alsace, France, and certified Yogom instructor since 2017.

In response to this time of heightened anxiety and isolation due to the COVID–19 heath crisis, we are offering free online meditation sessions to remain close to our community and help alleviate some of the anxiety and distress caused by this crisis.

“Ripa Awareness Meditation” is a simple and effective method that helps stabilise 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. The method was conceived by the master of Tibetan Buddhism, Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche to benefit his students around the world. RIPA AWARENESS MEDITATION - every Friday at 17:30

No previous meditation experience needed. A progressive cycle of introduction to the Ripa Awareness Meditation method.
