Consciousness unraveled

Seminar with various speakers

SAT 27 JUN 2015 | 12:00 — 16:00

Is that what we perceive as real truly the reality ? Or is this only our personnal perception of that reality ? Are our opinions and perceptions of events in our environment reliable ? Or does our consciousness play a game with us ? And if it is truly our own consciousness, can’t we then simply stop these games ?

Phuntsok Chö Ling, Tibetan Buddhist Centre in Rotterdam, organises Saturday 27 June 2015 a special seminar with the theme « consciousness unraveled ». During this event, three different speakers will shed a light on the functioning of our consciousness.


  • Lama Jigmé Namgyal (Buddhist teacher of Phuntsok Chö Ling)
  • Dr. Linda van der Zwaan (Teacher and education coordinator)
  • Joop Burgerhout (Psychologist and sociologist of religion)
  • Dr. Berthe Jansen (Tibetan-Dutch translator)

Lama Jigmé Namgyal visit to Ireland 9th to 16th April 2015

Once more we are happy to announce that Lama Jigmé Namgyal will be giving teachings in Ireland in April.

A weekend course based on ‘The Seven Points of Mind Training’ will take place on Sat 11th and Sun 12th April at Center, Feakle, County Clare.

This text on mind training, called lojong in Tibetan, was brought to Tibet by Atisha in the eleventh century. Its purpose is to help bring about a change of perspective by freeing the mind from the tyranny of self-grasping which Buddhists believe to be the root cause of suffering. These teachings can be enjoyed by everyone, for those with some knowledge of Buddhism and for newcomers. Read More

Developing Compassion – Study Retreat (Netherlands)

Phuntsok Chö Ling, Tibetan Buddhist Centre in Rotterdam, organizes one week study retreat led by Lama Jigmé Namgyal.

It will take place in the beautiful woods of Oosterhout, Netherland. Lama Jigmé will give profound instructions on developing compassion. As long as we continue to focus primarily on our own desires and needs we can never find true happiness and conquer our negative emotions and disturbances. True happiness arises through benefiting others. That is why compassion is the source of true happiness for ourselves and others.
