Meditation can help us both care for our health and improve our quality of life. The teachings will be based on the Tibetan forms of therapy ("tso-waâ meaning to heal wounds already there and trying to prevent future wounds occurring). The weekend will incorporateÂ visualisation,Â breathing methodsÂ andÂ meditation exercises.

The Samye Dzong approach to course donations, by Lama Zangmo
At the beginning of 2015, in honour of our Founder Choje Akong Tulku Rinpoche, we decided to offer our Dharma courses without a suggested course fee, on a donation basis.Â We do this with the motivation to make the precious teachings of the Dharma accessible to everyone, and no-one will be excluded due to lack of funds.
Traditionally the Buddhist teachings are given freely because they are considered priceless. In the Buddhist tradition one practicesÂ generosity, or Dana, by making monetary offerings for the teachings. This generosity is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is an offering given freely from the heart in appreciation of the Dharma...Â
