Summer Meditation Program 2019
Way of The Moon: Awakening Kindness
In a society displaying division, confusion, competition and speediness, kindness may seem questionable or even disempowering. How can we skillfully, genuinely keep our hearts and minds open and present—even when we feel triggered?
We invite you to a summer meditation program in the beautiful Czech Krkonoše mountains.
Teacher: ACHARYA ARND RIESTER
Arnd Riester has been a practicing Shambhala-Buddhist since 1991, and he has been teaching in the Shambhala Lineage since 1998. In 2010 he was appointed as a Shastri. He has served 7 years in this teaching role based in Cologne and part time in Prague. Sakyong Mipham empowered him in September 2017 as Acharya to represent him and the Kagyu, Nyingma, and Shambhala lineages he holds. Arnd Riester lives with his wife and two children in Cologne, Germany. He is a professional goldsmith and he runs two shops in Cologne and Bad Honnef, where he presents his own jewellery work with his business partners.
