Centered mainly around ideas of the buddhist dharma, this workshop provides guided meditation aswell as giving the participants the chance to share their experience with the group (sangha). The idea here is to benefit from one another by sharing different ways of perception and dealing with common hindrances in meditation practise. While playfulness and experimentation are key, the focus will keep shifting between theory and practise on demand.

This is a beginner-friendly non-consecutive workshop exploring various approaches every session. However, the purpose clearly is to provide a practical knowledge which enables a fruitful personal practice that makes a difference to ones life (beyond simple relaxation). The workshop is held in german/english and is run donation-based (recommended: 8-15 euro).

My own practise started as a teenager and moved from there over Zen, insight meditations, different aspects of ’samadhi‘ and recently to MBSR. A while ago I started to examine the common discourses of buddhism/hinduism and related traditions more profoundly. Lately I’ve been inspired alot by the dharma teachings of Rob Burbea.
