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 Mülamadhyamakakärikä is the most famous work of the great Acharya Nagarjuna, one of the main founders of the Madhyamaka School of Mahayana Buddhism. The central topic of this text is the understanding of emptiness of self and all phenomena, which are devoid of inherent existence and interdependently originated.

At a time when the practice of meditation is becoming mainstream in the West, these teachings are especially recommended as a way to deepen the understanding of the Buddhist philosophical principles that underpin the practice of meditation, the understanding of the mind and the nature of reality. In this particular year hit by Covid-19, Khenpo kindly accepted to continue giving these precious teachings through Zoom. Ripa Russia offered to be the main organiser in 2020. Dates Buddhist Philosphy I (revision of last year's curriculum) October 10-11, October 17-18. Time (GMT + 2) 9:00 - 11:00 13:00 -14: 15 14:30 - 15:30 You can check the time of the event in your time zone. The course of lectures is divided into two weekends and contains the explanation of the first four chapters of Mulamadhyamakakarika text. 1. Examination of causes and conditions. 2. Examination of motion. 3. Examination of the senses, capacities for perceiving. 4. Examination of scandhas (aggregations). Buddhist Philosophy II The next lecture course is planned to be held in January/February 2021. 5. Examination of the primary elements, dhatu. 6. Examination of the desire and the one who desires. 7.

Once the mind is settled, aspects of VIPASSANA meditation, or "penetrating vision", are introduced, facilitating approaches that free the mind from conceptual fabrication.  Attentive presence and mindfulness work together to help us accept life situations as they are and make them the very object of our meditative practice. The Ripa Awareness Meditation (RAM) method was developed by Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche, authentic master of Tibetan Buddhism of the Ripa lineage. Geneviève Hamelet has been practicing meditation for over 25 years; a student of Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche, she is the director of RAM programs in charge of development and training. Since 2009, she has also been involved in the development of the Mindfulness and MBSR programmes in French-speaking countries, within the ADM (Association pour le développement de la Mindfulness), of which she is a founding member and President.

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.
