Kadampa Meditation Centre, Copenhagen

The Kadampa Meditation Centre, Copenhagen in St. Anne's Passage

Velkommen til Kadampa Meditation Centre, Copenhagen. Centeret blev grundlagt i 2005 af den kendte Buddhistiske meditations mester og forfatter, Ærværdige Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. Det er et ud af 1200 centre og grupper i 40 lande, også kaldet the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union.

Vores mål i Kadampa Meditation Centre, Copenhagen er at tilbyde et åbent, imødekommende og fredeligt sted i København. Hvor alle kan finde større indre ro, glæde og velbefindende. Vi tilbyder meditations undervisning og kurser, workshops med mere for alle. Vi håber også du vil finde noget både brugbart og interessant her – uanset om du er fuldstændig nybegynder eller allerede har erfaring med meditation, det kræves ikke at man er buddhist.

Undervisningen og meditations teknikkerne kan spores over 2.500 år tilbage i en ubrudt linje til Buddha Shakyamuni. Undervisningen blive selvfølgelig præsenteret på en måde, så den kan bruges praktisk i en helt almindelig dansk hverdag. Vi kalder det for Moderne Buddhisme og tror på at alle vil finde det nyttigt at lære.

Men den eneste måde at finde ud af om dette er noget for dig, er ved at komme til en af vores klasser eller workshops og opleve hvad meditation kan gøre for dig. Du er meget velkommen til droppe ind til en af vores ugentlige undervisningsklasser eller booke en lørdags workshop. Vi håber at se dig i centeret.
