The Song of the Vajra Retreat Part I with Stoffelina Verdonk
July 7 – 14
The Vajra Dance is a meditation in movement. The simple, slow and fluid movements relax the body, clear the mind, and relieve the tensions of our daily life.
Through dancing we activate and coordinate specific energy points in our body according to an ancient knowledge of channels and chakras. In this way the Vajra Dance dissolves energy blocks, harmonizes the three main aspects of our being – body, energy and mind – and develops presence and awareness.

The “Dance of the Song of the Vajra” is a complex symbolic dance connected particularly to the energetic aspect of our existence. Through their sound, all the syllables of the Song of the Vajra are linked to specific energy points within our inner mandala, our body, and our outer mandala, the external dimension of the world.

Drajyor Course with Fabian Sanders combined with Khaita Joyful Dances led by Erika Motylova
August 28 – September 1
Drajyor, system used for phonetics in practice texts developed by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, helps to understand the sound and right pronunciation of Tibetan language.
“Khaita” means “Harmony in Space”.”Kha” means “space/sky”. “Ta” means “harmony/melody”. It is a simple and joyful way to experience inner harmony.
Khaita come from the Tibetan culture and promote harmony within the individual and between people and their environment through dance, which goes beyond protecting and supporting a single culture.
While dancing we learn to be present in the inner display of thoughts and emotions. As we cultivate this relaxed presence in movement, harmony and joy develop naturally and we carry it to our daily life, moving more easily through our routines, activities.

Tibetan Language Beginner´s Course with Fabian Sanders combined with voice training with Alexandru Anton
September 2 – 7
The classical Tibetan language is an indispensable tool for all those interested in Buddhism, Tibetan traditions, sciences and culture. Not only does it preserve and transmit most of Indian Buddhist literature in translation, but it is also the expressive instrument of Tibetan Masters, yogis and scholars of great erudition and realisation of all times.
To make the language alive, we will combine it with a concrete experience through sound, movement, energy while exploring the creative possibilities that our voice has to offer.
Open course for everybody interested.
