Retreat, step by step to understanding and wisdom:
Working with biographical themes and emotions in retreat

With enthusiasm and devotion I have accompanied and supported disciples from all over the world in their solitary and group retreats in India, Nepal and Europe. My experience over the years has shown me that it is of great benefit for practice and retreat preparation to have a look at ones own biography. Being in retreat naturally brings up a lot of thoughts about our life and the past. Despite our practice these thoughts can be overwhelming and cause emotional difficulties in the retreat. In my work as a professional biography-writing-teacher I use different methods to support practitioners in looking at their life and working with recurring themes in their biography. All of the methods are supportive to our development on all levels and enhance wisdom, insight and creativity. As a psychological counsellor, I also make sure that recurring themes can be addressed personally and that retreatants learn basic tools for coming in contact with and processing the emotions that come up.

I am looking forward to meeting different practitioners and working with them for one week in Schneverdingen together with Drubpön Rachel Dodds and Giorgio Savigliano.

Message from H.E.Garchen Rinpoche on October 10, 2020



It doesn’t matter whether one calls oneself a Buddhist or not a Buddhist. The Dharma is love.

When you see how your love touches others, it will become your happiness to give your happiness away.

Love is the only cause of happiness. Its nature is all-pervasive like space.

Love is the sunlight of the mind.

H.E.Garchen Rinpoche has finished his retreat and sends us this message:
