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.


Arnd Riester is a practicing Shambhala-Buddhist since 1991. Since 1998 he teaches in the Shambhala Lineage. In 2010 he was appointed as a Shastri . He served 7 years in this teaching role base in Cologne and part time in Praha. 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 kids in Cologne, Germany. He is a professional goldsmith; he runs two shops in Cologne and Bad Honnef, where he present his own jewellery work with his business partners.
