Week of Retreat in Höfen



The first retreat that combined the Practice of Green Tara and the Vajra Dance to benefit all sentient beings. The two instructors worked very harmoniously together, Vajra Dance instructor Karin Heinemann and Santi Maha Sangha instructor Alexander (Sasha) Pubants.



In the gonpa of Höfen 8 people aged from 20-60 years, 4 women and 4 men, practiced one week together, cooked together and took care of each other.



The beautiful crystal palace in Höfen / Germany. Hans Vogel built this pavillon inspired by the Merigar Gonpa for the mandala of Vajra Dance. Here the retreat of Vajra dance and Tara took place from 4th to 11th of October 2015.


Höfen/ Germany is a small village of 7 houses in quiet countryside between lovely hills. Here Hans Vogel renovated an old farmhouse as a seminar house for about 30 people. This is the yellow house, the Meditation Center that the Community in Germany has used for more than 20 years for retreats , but also for study groups of SMS, Yantra Yoga and assemblies of members of the Dzogchen Community.
