This Online Retreat is based on the ‘Live’ retreat that took place in June this year (2020).

Kindness in action

What will you do to be kind to yourself? What will you do differently to be a good listener to your inner world and your surrounding? How can you benefit others more? In short: What can you do to go deeper into your heart and wider into the world? 

Cultivate a habit of kindness!
Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche continues to emphasize the importance to develop positive habits, and scientific studies show it takes 66 days for something to actually turn into a habit. Following the ‘live’ Online Retreat Be Wise, Go Kind: Uncertainty as an Opportunity, we invited participants to reflect and share their intentions of kindness. Based on this we started a 66-day campaign: sharing an act of kindness every day as support to cultivate a habit of kindness. Seek inspiration? Look at the intentions, suggestions and actions of others that came here before you – and then develop and share your own!
