ENTRY: feel FREE to donate.

Is psychedelic experience real or a fantasy?
What did i see and feel? What did the thoughts mean?
Can i take this experience back into my normal day-to-day life?
How should i interpret the emotions which i experienced?
How can i use the knowledge which i discovered?

According to the theory of subtle fields (Shai Tubali), our body is surrounded by 5 layers of consciousness. Any spiritual or psychedelic experience, any vision or insight belong to one of these fields.
Understanding them and knowing how to shift from one field to another is the key to merge between spiritual or esoteric states and life itself. It also enable us to shift our self-development higher and higher and not get stuck in one state of mind, enjoyable as it may seem.

The speaker Eilon Lester is a published author of 5 books, all in the field of awareness, holds an MBA in business from Manchester University and is the founder of ‘The Expansion Method’.

Do you know how to knit? Do you have yarn leftovers?
Help us to dress Nomad’s tree for the winter :)

We always wanted to decorate the tree in front of Nomad. We saw some trees in Portugal, pretty covered with knitted sleeves, it inspired us to make such a dress here.

If you can contribute, please knit a 140-160 cm long piece (that’s the diameter of the tree, yes it’s big!) with yarn of any color. At the event on Thursday we will do some more knitting and then connect all the pieces to one nice sleeve.

REWARD: free chai and cake for the helpers!

Shamatha Mediation GUIDED by: Arne Schelling and Seseg Zhigzhitova
Bodhicharya website. Bodhicharya FacebookTergar Meditation Community.

Entry: feel FREE to donate.

If we want to go on any kind of journey—not just a spiritual one but also a secular one, such as studying or doing business—we need a mind that is workable. We need a mind that we can rely on. That’s the notion of training the mind, of making the mind workable so it can do whatever it needs to do.

Shamatha, or mindfulness, meditation is how we make this mind more stable, more useful. From this point of view, shamatha is not purely a Buddhist practice; it’s a practice that anyone can do. It doesn’t tie in with a particular spiritual tradition. If we want to undo bewilderment, we’re going to have to be responsible for learning what our own mind is and how it works, no matter what beliefs we hold.

Arne Schelling has been practicing meditation since he is 15. He works as doctor in Berlin and translates buddhists teachers. He is a student of the great lama Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche,

Seseg Zhigzhitova is a group coordinator and practice leader of of the Tergar Practice group Berlin, which is a part of International Tergar Meditation Community, guided by Mingyur Rinpoche. Seseg lives in Berlin, working as an architect.
