Important: General Information about the Retreats in Allmuthen by Lama Ngawang Tsultrim

2023 the following retreats will be offered in Europe Benchen Phuntsok Ling:


14 days of individual retreat
During the sessions everyone does their own practice, everything else is done in the group as in the other retreats.
14 days of White Tara practice
The short text of Tenga Rinpoche will be used. We will focus mainly on the creation and completion phases.
Prerequisite: Tara empowerment.
14 days "Four Objects of Mindfulness"
Anyone can participate, including people who have not taken refuge.
Meditation on the four objects of mindfulness means focusing mindfulness on the body, on feelings, on the mind and on mental objects.
For this life and also for future lives it is very important to practise mindfulness. A lot of things go wrong in our lives. This comes from a lack of mindfulness. The distracted mind is an unhappy mind.
Mindfulness can be trained. If we want good health, success at work and just a happy life in general, it is very important to train one's mindfulness.
A mindfulness retreat helps to improve body awareness, to become aware of one's own feelings and to become aware again and again of the thoughts that come to mind. We should finally learn to notice what our body and mind have to tell us.
Mindfulness is the raw human ability to be fully in the present.
By training our mindfulness, we can finally see the nature of truth. In this retreat we will look at all four objects.
14 days of Gönkar Practice
Prerequisite: Gönkar empowerment.
During the Gönkar Retreat the main focus will be to practice the visualisation of the creation phase (kyerim) and to recite mantras. The short puja text for daily practice will be taken for this purpose, instead of the long one used at the summer course.
