A spacious and healing meditation retreat north of Stockholm in beautiful nature close to a big river.
This unique teaching came to be called Lam-Rim, or gradual Path to Enlightenment, and has been transmitted by Tibetan Masters like His Holiness the Dalai Lama into our modern times.
Tibetan Masters have for centuries developed a time-tested, logical, sequential and practical road map to help guide spiritual seekers on the path, from suffering to liberation.
Take a meditation break and restore your energy for the rest of the day. Even short meditations have positive effects.
This is a continuation of the course "Foundation of Mindfulness" and is also taught by the very same experienced teacher: Martin Ström. - Great opportunity to deepen your practice and take your mindfulness to the next level!
The art of happiness?
Watching emotions without getting involved in the old habituated stories.
Refining focus, understanding ourselves, and opening our heart to ourselves and others!
What does it mean to take refuge in Buddhism? What is Buddha, Dharma & Sangha? Clear out the concepts, either you are Buddhist or not - everyone is welcome!
A very practical course where you learn both the theory and the practice of Mindfulness. Take care of your life before, prevent burnout and negative stress. This course helps you to get more focused, relaxed, and calm.
During this weekend we´ll dive deeper into the mind training: you´ll understand your mind and how to train in meditation. We will examine the nature of the mind, its functions, divisions, objects, causes. We will discuss mind and mental factors, the nature of afflictions, and how we can improve the quality of our lives - by mind training.
Du får gedigna kunskaper om visualisering-meditation och introduktion till Kriya-tantra - den första nivån av Tantra /Vajrayana. Denna kurs har utvecklats av Rob Preece - med ledning av Lama Yeshe. Lama Yeshe uppmuntrade Rob att kombinera västerländsk psykologi och Tantra. - Det är önskvärt att du som deltagare har grundläggande kunskaper om Buddhistisk meditation.
Under denna kurs får du bekanta dig med olika slags meditationer, förstå att det är i mångt och mycket kunskap och teknik det handlar om - att börja med. Det som skiljer Buddhistisk meditation från annat är att dess syfte är långsiktig: att utveckla konstruktiva mentala sinnestillstånd, att verkligen ta hand om ditt liv och medvetande. Du lär dig använda meditation som "verktyg" för mental hygien och ökad livskvalité.
This is an introductory course on Buddhist psychology and philosophy, also touching the Four Noble Truths of Aryas. Indeed a good start for a beginner. Then you might continue to next level of studies, such as Discovering Buddhism study course - which first modules offer valuable insight into the nature of mind, and meditation-techniques. - And you do not need to become a "Buddhist", "just become a better of what you already are ", as Dalai Lama puts it.
She was a Lama Yeshe disciple - and chose Buddhism instead of Black Panthers at the ´60s, that was a great challenge at that time!
You have a unique opportunity to meet and talk with a very experienced Buddhist practitioner about "Refuge in Three Jewels". This talk is open for everyone; to Buddhist, non-Buddhist - to everybody who wants to increase one´s understanding about Dharma and Buddhism.
What does "The Buddhist Science of Mind" - as Dalai Lama calls it - say about gender and race issues? What about women in Buddhism? - Join us this evening and listen to the professor, Buddhist, Afro-American woman.
Healing meditation and practice once a month. For yourself, your loved ones, friends - strangers, enemies, the world.
This course is all about building new emotional resources, uncovering the seeds of self-compassion that already lie within you. You´ll learn step-by-step to discover this powerful inner resource and transform your life. Self-compassion lessens anxiety, depression, and stress, and helps you to keep healthy habits such as diet and exercise. It is also key to more satisfying personal relationships. And it’s easier than you think! Constructive changes occur naturally as you treat yourself in a kinder and more compassionate way.
You have an opportunity to join this longer course about the 37 practices - and learn more about the practices on the Bodhisattva Path. You can study together with others, entire six months; starting with weekend teachings in October, then six online teachings à one hour with Q&A - and ending in March 2020 with weekend teachings again. - This will lighten up your (and our) long Nordic winter!
Yin yogan hjälper dig att öppna upp, slappna av, släppa taget och komma till ro, det finns ingen strävan, ingen perfekt ställning, inget mål.

Mindfulness in the real world
There are many different ideas of what mindfulness is. In Buddhist psychology, mindfulness is simply being able to focus on something without becoming distracted with a mind that is relaxed, stable, and clear.
The opposite of this is having a mind that is tense, distracted, and dull, something we all recognize from everyday life. Imagine going through the day with a completely relaxed mind, being fully focused on all your tasks and everyone you meet and experiencing everything with a brilliant clarity. These are the direct benefits of developing mindfulness.
The true benefit of developing mindfulness, however, is to then apply that mindfulness to our own experience and the world around us. This application of mindfulness leads to insights that help us live more in tune with reality.
On the basis of mindfulness beautiful states of minds like love, compassion, generosity will grow. On the basis of mindfulness we can become more wise and insightful and instead of being constantly tormented by our own minds, we can make our own minds our best friend.

The wisdom of doing nothing
Reading about mind training and cultivating our minds can sound exhausting. Yet another thing on the list of improvement projects next to the failed gym membership and the exhausting need for professional training to keep up in your career.
When we, the people of modernity, when we meet these age old techniques of meditation and mind training, we approach them like everything else in our lives. We want to perform, we want to be the best, we try so hard. Too hard. This becomes our biggest challenge.
We need to cultivate the ability to relax deeply, to let go of all striving, to simply rest in things as they are, to experience contentment without the need to achieve anything. We need to learng to stop “doing” and cultivate “being”.
Come spend a moment of stillness and peace with us. Just sitting quietly together with no agenda, no striving, no need for improvement. Come sit with us in the spirit of kindness, and self-care.
