about the course

Relax, be inspired and find peace with a half-day course on the ancient practice of mantra recitation. Learn how we can use this practice to purify our mind, stay positive and draw close to the Buddhas.

«Mantra» is a sanskrit word meaning «mind-protection», it is the supreme method to accomplish spiritual realisations, pacify negative thoughts and receive blessings or inspiration from enlightened beings.

The afternoon will include a combination of teachings, guided meditations and a short session of chanting the mantra of the Buddha of Compassion. We will learn how to combine mantra recitation with breathing meditation and also how to use mantras in the context of our daily lives.
