Czech Republic

Practice

Since 1997 I have been practicing Dharma, since 2002 in Shambhala. This year I have been to Rigden Abisheka. I also practice as Dorje Kasung, Rusung of the Center, Council member and translator.

About

After a visit of Kerry MacLean, some 11 years ago, I have started Shambhala family programs in the Czech republic. They are now run by different co-ordinators but as far as we know we are one of few (or only?) Centers in the Mandala that run two family programs a year (a week in Summer and 10 days in Winter/Spring).

For 6th year I lead Parenting group. With my husband - fellow Shambhalian - we have co-ordinated this years' family program in Dechen Chöling and plan to co-ordinate the next one. Our daughter is a Sun Camper and son has been to the Rites of Passage. I have trained in Mindfulness in Schools program and work at a University at Student Services.

Main teachers

Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche

Purpose

The purpose of my participation at the conference is to bring there the experience of Children and Family programs in Europe, participate in the creative processes at the conference and bring back inspiration, best practices and contacts for further enrichment and support of european family and children programs.

Offering

I hope already this journey to the conference will bring some benefit to the community. After I come back I want to share what I learned by report and personal communication. If we decide to organize in the Europe a gathering with similar theme and objective - I would work on this with others.
