Updates for Bodhicharya Summercamp and Berlin Winter teachings



 Time once again to start making plans:

Start: 14/07/2014 at 18:00 
End: 20/07/2014 at 14:00
Location: Casa da Torre – Centro de Retiros | Soutelo – Vila Verde – Braga | PORTUGAL
After the previous years’ success, in 2014, the Bodhicharya Summer Camp will again be held in Portugal.
The chosen place is a Christian retreat house, in the North of Portugal. The facilities are excellent, with single and double rooms with twin beds. Vegetables and fruit are grown by the community itself and taste absolutely delicious.
There is a river, at a short walking distance away, where one can swim or just refresh oneself. There is a fluvial beach and a small terrace, perfect to sit, relax and enjoy a drink.
The summercamp will be accessible to everyone, even to those who do not have a deep knowledge of the Buddhist path and did not attend last years’ sessions. Every day there will be two teaching sessions with Rinpoche (one in the morning, one at the end of the afternoon).
If needed, there will be introductory classes for beginners who have not attended last years teachings, and group meditation.
Participants may also relax and enjoy the activities available around the center. Families are most welcome, however we will not be in a position to provide childcare.
Please go to Bodhicharya summercamp website for updates and bookings.
