The Centre Culturel Tibétain is happy to announce that it is organizing a special weekend from Saturday 22 June to Sunday 23 June 2019 in Luxembourg during which Lama Jigmé will teach the basics of Phowa.
Phowa (Tibetan: འཕོ་བ) or the transference of consciousness, is a powerful method which enables you, if you practice it well during your life, to transfer your consciousness to a pure field at the time of death. There are many levels of transference. By becoming familiar with this method during your lifetime, the moment of death is no longer something to fear, but rather becomes a moment of spiritual triumph and liberation. As you might know, Lama Jigmé holds some very special instructions from his Phowa master, Akyong Siddhi Tulku, who was an extraordinarily accomplished master of Phowa. It is Lama Jigmé’s deepest wish to share these teachings with those who wish to receive them, and to benefit beings at the most important and most vulnerable moment of their lives, the moment of dying.
Knowledge of Buddhism or experience with meditation is not necessary, the method is suitable for everyone.
In December 2019, Lama Jigmé and the CCT will organize a 5-day Phowa retreat in Luxembourg. If you want to participate, it is advisable to follow this introduction first, unless you have previously received Phowa instruction from Lama Jigmé.
Please be aware that this programme may not be suitable for people with certain mental health conditions. If you have a history of mental health problems, please contact Lama Jigme or the Phowa programme staff to discuss the possibility of attending.
Participation is only possible for the whole weekend, not for single days.
