Swiss Alpine Course 2016 in Amden

Diamond Way around the world: From 2. until 9. October 2016 we met for the annual “Swiss Alpine Course” at our retreat center in Amden, Switzerland.

The program was guided by Diamond Way Teachers from Switzerland and Germany. They explained the foundational meditation practices of the Karma Kagyü Lineage (Ngöndro) and meditated together with around 150 friends who participated the meditation course at our beautiful retreat center at Lake Walensee in the Swiss Alps.
