Online preparation meeting:
August 8 2019, 7:30-9PM CET
We are going to meet online to clarify any practical questions you might prior to departure on August 8, 2019. Furthermore, this meeting will serve as a general meditative and mental preparation for our pilgrimage.The meeting is set to begin at 7:30PM CET and will last approximately 90mins.
Spiritual preparation meetings:
August 22 & September 4, 2019 7:30-8:30PM CET
As part of our pilgrimage, we are going to meet twice online to allow for our spiritual opening toward Tibet to be anchored in. We'll meet in the later half of August, and then again in the beginning of September. These evenings will also offer the opportunity to meditate together.
The specific kind of meditation offered on both of these evenings is still practiced by Tibetan monks to this day. Its purpose is to clear the mind and open your awareness to a deeper connection with your soul.
