Description of Teaching and Learning

Lama Lhakpa Yeshe is travelling to France again this year to give these extremely important teachings that are of great benefit to everyone.

Following is a description of the days;

Teaching - Receiving - Meditation

Analytical observation of teaching

Reflection on observation

Find questions for debating with Lama and the class

To make best use of all the teaching time, you must get some experience from the Phowa practice.

Here’s some guidance and advice:

  1. During the morning and afternoon breaks share your experience of the teaching with others. Less talk about self, your own background etc. The number 1 topic is ‘Phowa’. Remind each other of the topic.
  2. The 2 hour lunch will be silent. Lama will explain how to be silent in a group. We will eat together and you can spend the remainder of the time sitting or walking quietly.

The reason and purpose for this silence is that you need to focus yourself on Phowa practice. Pay attention to yourself. Reflect on the Phowa practice or any aspects of Bhuddism.

At the start of the next session there will be questions and answers. See if you can find some questions for the Lama when you rejoin the class.

This teaching is very important.

This way you will get more benefit from this wonderful opportunity.

It’s a difficult subject, but make the effort and you’ll get the result

Travel

You are responsible for your own travel arrangements. If you are arriving from the UK or other country, there are international airports with cheap flights at Limoges, Bordeaux and Bergerac. All approximately 2 hours drive. There are closer airports at Poitier (45 min) and La Rochelle (1hr15min) but the flights may be more expensive. The retreat centre is situated in the countryside, so hiring a car is the best option for getting to the venue.
