Information om evenemang

Yeshin Norbu har glädjen att informera att vårt center nu har möjlighet att delta i en pilotkurs i fördjupad meditation som hålls av Maitreya Institute i Hollands före detta residenta lärare Venerable Gendun. Venerable Gendun har många års erfarenhet i både stabiliserande meditation (Shamata) och Vipassana och denna kurs erbjuder möjlighet att fördjupa kunskap och praktik i båda dessa. Vajrayogini Institute i Frankrike, Land of Joy i England samt Shantideva institute i New York deltar också i denna kurs.

Kursen kommer att hållas online på lördagar mellan kl. 15.30-18.00 med start den 2:a september och börjar med en timmes meditation följt av undervisning. Det finns ett förslag att ca. en gång i månaden kan vi organisera ett fysiskt tillfälle på centret då deltagare är välkomna att praktisera tillsammans kanske med lite fika.

Kursen löper totalt över fyra år, men det går bra att delta drop in, att registrera sig månadsvis eller en terminsvis. Undervisningarna spelas in och de som registrerar sig får tillgång till en digital plattform online där det går att ta del av missade meditationer. Denna kurs vänder sig med fördel till dem som har lite förkunskaper i Tibetansk Buddhistisk filosofi.

Varmt Välkomna att ta del av och pröva på denna fantastiska möjlighet!

Yeshin Norbu Team

This four-year online course provides students with long term, in-depth support in their meditative development. This weekly course will offer: 

  • authentic traditional instructions, in contemporary language, aimed at providing a comprehensive set of meditation tools for students to transform their knowledge of the Dharma into personal experience.

  • traditional and modern theories on supplementary topics such as models of healthy psychological and spiritual development, ritual, narrative, ethics, and social engagement.

  • an international, community of meditators, online and live

Students will actively train in both shamatha and vipassana, gradually investigating the nature of self and phenomena. We will explore how we project layers (of ignorance) onto our perception and how to challenge these through reasoning and direct insight. This course is above all a practical one. It aims at helping students navigate their meditative lives successfully, both on and off the cushion. 

To complement the IDMT course we will also offer:

  • Meditation Retreats – 4 annual retreats on vipassana, compassion, and mahamudra, offered both live at one of the centers and online. 

  • Yogi Bootcamp – an intensive, guided 1-year meditation training with weekly personal interviews (call) for a small group of international students. 

Venerable Losang Gendun

After 20 years of practicing Theravada Buddhism Ven. Gendun became a monk in the Tibetan tradition in 2006. He studied Buddhist philosophy for nine years at Nalanda Monastery and practised under various teachers from Gelug and Theravada Forest traditions. In total, Ven. Gendun spent more than four years in retreat. He has been teaching for over 15 years in the Netherlands, France, Monaco, the US, and the UK. He actively promotes interfaith practice, contributes to Emouna, an international interreligious leadership network, and is an active promotor of gender equality. His main goal is to translate traditional methods into contemporary terms to make them accessible to a Western audience.

The Buddha Project

This meditation course is part of The Buddha Project led by Ven. Losang Gendun, a branch of which is the Buddha Research Project, an on-going collaboration between Buddhist contemplatives and scientific researchers from the universities of Nîmes and Lausanne, and the Mind & Life organization (founded by neuroscientist Francesco Varela in collaboration with H.H. the Dalai Lama). It is aimed at investigating transformative processes in long-term meditators, regarding such topics as mental health, perception, and self-transcendence. For the initial research it has been granted a European Varela Award.

Practical details

The In-Depth Meditation Training will run weekly on Saturdays and will consist of about 1-hour of guided meditation and 1,5 hours of teachings. The course offers a great opportunity for Buddhist practitioners. In the first year many of the foundational topics will be introduced, however a basic understanding of Mahayana Buddhism is a prerequisite to attend.

It will be given in English, with French translation, online via Zoom. The recordings will be made available after the sessions.
