Kirchheim Winter Retreat 2007

The twenty-second annual Rigpa winter retreat at Kirchheim, Germany has recently concluded.

Sogyal Rinpoche taught for ten days (28 December - 6 January), giving profound, but highly practical, advice on how to work with our minds in every moment of our daily lives, from the moment we wake up in the morning until we go to bed at night.

He also shared insights gathered from Three-Year Retreatants at Lerab Ling and Home Retreatants from around the world, on how they apply the teachings in their daily life and in their spiritual practice.

The retreat was attended by about 700 students from around Germany, as well as from France, The Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, India, Australia and the United States.

At midnight on New Years' Eve, Rinpoche joined the celebrations to pray with the sangha for an auspicious 2008.
