Conducted in a retreat environment, this programme will include talks, discussion, meditation and contemplations. 

Buddhist teacher Sarah Coleman will share experiences of learning from Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, while philosopher Alexandre Jollien will contribute his experiences of how Trungpa’s teachings influenced and benefitted him.

Author of several books, including works co-authored with Matthieu Ricard and Christophe André, Jollien has long been interested in Buddhism and especially in the teachings of Trungpa. Click here to see him speaking at a conference in Paris with Matthieu Ricard.
