Developing the East-West Sanctuary - Budapest, Hungary

For the past 2 years Sinhagupta, a Dharmacharini from Cambridge UK, has been developing the East-West Sanctuary in Budapest, Hungary, in collaboration with the Budapest Buddhist University. This is a major project, and one which will take many years in development.

She has sent us this news of recent developments there -

“Since the opening 18 months ago, we have been running a variety of meditation and psychotherapeutic workshops, and also seminars on business sustainability and developing a European Buddhist University. Many of these have run for Hungarians, but now we are hoping to expand internationally to a wider audience. The sanctuary is beginning to attract different people from many different areas - but all with a willingness and desire to communicate and relate within this globalising but fragmented world.

“Starting in March we are running the first of a three-week, year-long course in Buddhist theory and practice. This will be led in English by Paramananda, Tamas Agocs from the Budapest Buddhist University , and myself. We are also starting a three-weekend course in contemplative psychotherapy, which will run in English with Hungarian translation. Finally, we are offering one other more specialised event: a series of short retreats called 'Javas' which are based in a Hungarian spiritual tradition that itself is founded in Ayurvedic medicine and healing, astrology, and Buddhist philosophy and healing”.

More information on all these can be downloaded from the internet - 2008 East-West Centre Programme for the programme,
Javas_retreats for the retreats

If you are interested in attending or knowing more, please contact Sinhagupta. If you know anyone else who may be interested, please would you forward this link.
