Module I - What is real meditation

Real meditation has nothing to do with feeling good. Feelings always change. In real meditation one is not disturbed by emotions or feelings, but one can abide in a stable and calm and clear state of mind. This is when meditation brings clarity and leads to recognition of ones true nature which is hidden underneath our continuous flow of thoughts, feelings and emotions, like the sun is hidden behind the clouds. In five sessions Lama Jigmé Namgyal will teach about what real authentic meditation is and what the benefits are. These sessions are open to all, irrespective of religion, background, nationality or experience in meditation.

  • When: 8/10, 15/10, 5/11, 12/11, 19/11 2019 | 12:15-1:45pm
  • Where: Campus Belval | 3rd floor | 3.230

Module II - Emotions in daily life and during meditation

What to do with emotions during meditation? Or during daily life? What are emotions actually? Where are they coming from? And where do they go to? Buddhism talks about antidotes. What are they and how to apply them? In five sessions Lama Jigmé Namgyal will explain what emotions are, what they are not, and how to deal with them in daily life and during meditation. These sessions are open to all, irrespective of religion, background or nationality.

Module III  - Mindfulness

Simply being mindful of what you are doing and thinking is not enough because simply being aware that you are angry or worried does not help you. Real mindfulness is much more that that; it is a means to transform negatives to positives. In six sessions Lama Jigmé Namgyal will teach about what real mindfulness is, what the benefits are and how to integrate it in daily life. These sessions are open to all, irrespective of religion, background or nationalit

Lama Jigmé Namgyal was born into a nomad family in Golog, in the eastern part of Tibet, where he studied Buddhism from a young age. His root teacher was Khenpo Jigmé Phuntsok Rinpoche, with whom he studied at the university of Serthar Larung Gar for nine years.

After consulting his teachers, Lama Jigmé Namgyal decided to leave Tibet for Europe. He founded the Tibetan Cultural Center in Luxembourg as well as the Phuntsok Chö Ling Buddhist Center in Rotterdam. Furthermore, he raised Golog Support Foundation to provide medical care and education in remote areas of Golog, and Compassionate Leadership, aimed at bringing ethical decision taking into corporate management through training in mindfulness and compassion. This also includes an on-going programme at the Dutch army.

Lama Jigmé has much experience in spiritually accompanying the dying and is also deeply interested in inter-religious dialogue. Through his pithy sense of humour, he is able to connect with his Western audience in an open and direct way, and to communicate an experience beyond words.
