Buchinger Inspiration Week with Martine van Houten and Dr. Lisa Green*

Our health is a complex system comprising different spheres – the mental, the emotional and the physical. It is dependent on the relationship we cultivate between each of these spheres within ourselves, as well as the relationships we build and cultivate in our immediate and extended environment. We will examine these topics every day in motivational talks and in-depth discussions.
The programme is held in German and English.

Mindfulness Meditation Week with Lharampa Tenzin Kalden*

Practising mindfulness plays a central role in Buddhism. Being mindful means being in the here and now, where we are conscious of our emotions, thoughts and actions. At every moment, our mind is alert and knows what impact our actions will have on other people and the environment. Mindfulness is a clear, neutral spirit that does not judge or appraise.
There are four aspects to mindfulness: mindfulness of my body, my feelings, my thoughts and my actions. Those who practice mindful-ness are aware of samsara, the repetitive everlasting cycle of habit, and live their lives for the good of all sentient beings.

Content of the seminar:

  • Meditation and Tibetan Lu Jong Yoga for the five elements
  • Mindfulness meditation and walking meditation
  • Buddhist psychology for harmony and health
  • Healing mantras and exercises to cleanse your chakra derived from Tibetan Buddhism
  • Meditation and exercises against stress and burnout

Lharampa Tenzin Kalden is a Buddhist monk and meditation instructor who teaches traditional mindfulness meditation methods and Tibetan Lu Jong Yoga.
Born in Tibet and raised in Europe, he studied at the Sera Monastic University in South India for 17 years, where he graduated in the five great sciences of Buddhism. He was awarded the title of Rabjampa and achieved the highest scholastic title of Lharampa. For the last nine years, Lharampa Tenzin Kalden has organized training courses in Buddhist philosophy and meditation retreats in Europe.
The programme is held in German and English.

Inspirational seminar on herbs and their healing properties*

During our “Herb Week”, you can choose from several events on different aspects of “Medicinal herbs – All the goodness of nature” at our clinic on Lake Constance.

This is a chance to experience plants, and especially herbs with their healing properties, with all your senses – in cooking demonstrations, at special workshops, e.g., on the topic of lavender with practical applications, or creatively in the art studio.
If the current situation permits, we will go on outings to herb gardens in the region, where you can find out more about cultivating plants based on the principles of permaculture.

Various employees of the clinic introduce you to different medicinal plants and tell you about their properties.
