Welcome to the „Small Meeting of Buddhist Teachers in Europe”: http://adhisthana.org/
Here is a Google maps link https://goo.gl/maps/YvTiGnRJdj32
Following the inspiration given by the Hamburg conference in June this year (cf. https://www.buddhismuskunde.uni-hamburg.de/bdcs2018), which some of you might have attended, this year's topic for our small meeting preceding next year's large meeting in Barcelona will be:
"Buddhists in Dialogue with Contemporary Societies in Europe"
Last year's round of teachers agreed that we would take up topics from the 2017 meeting if all the participants this year would feel this to be attractive. After last year's very inspiring exchanges many felt there were topics that would allow a deeper engagement if we had the time for it. This year's meeting and topic will easily give space to follow up topics from last year's discussions on the topic: "How to live, study, teach Buddhism in Europe today".
I hope to meet many of you in Adhisthana this year! (For members and by invitation only!)
