17th Gyalwa Karmapa"Buddhism is a way of life through which we develop the qualities of our mind.
This way of life is very unusual, as it is a means to attain happiness without harming others.

Dhagpo’s team is sensitive to the evolution of the health and safety situation in France and continues to adapt the courses and retreats on offer according to the circumstances. We are happy to present you the teaching program from October through December. We reduced the proposed number of courses and made and effort to respond to different needs. We worked hard to maintain a balance between study, meditation, and Dharma in daily life.

Furthermore, we have opened the temple in order to be able to increase the number of courses available—up until now courses have been held solely in the Institute—and to diversify the themes of the teachings.
On a concrete level, in order to come and follow a teaching, preregistering for courses is required. During your visit, on-site lodgings are NOT available, and meals will be served at lunchtime only. You may also bring a picnic lunch.

Of course, course participation presupposes respecting the now-widely-known security measures that allow for safe community activity:
1. Maintaining a distance of 1m from other individuals in the Institute and the Temple, at the Welcome Office, and during one’s movements around the center.
2. Wearing a mask in all enclosed spaces (Welcome Office, Institute, Temple, Dining Hall, etc).
3. Cleaning one’s hands with hand sanitizer at the entry to any location where objects are touched by multiple people.
4. Respecting flow of traffic and any indications on the ground.
5. Retaining your seat location in the Institute or Temple for the duration of the course.

If you cannot or do not wish to follow these directives, we ask you not to come to the center so long as these rules are in force. Likewise, we ask you not to come if you are sick or present any symptoms of the virus.

If we all observe these few rules, the center will be able to recommence its daily activities step by step. There remains a little time for us to consider how to organize the program for the beginning of 2021. Between now and then, we wish you practice that is beneficial for all.
