discovering the potential
of our mind:

Easter retreat 2022

From April 12 to 17

Mingyur Rinpoche says that the essence of Buddhism is not to make ourselves better people, but to discover the potential of our mind. In fact, this statement is very common among Buddhist teachers, and it is that they emphasize that, in reality, there is nothing to change about ourselves: what we long to change already is, already is . We just have to get rid of habits and patterns that entangle our potential. Otherwise, as Lama Norbu puts it: "As long as we don't observe how the mind works, we will only be victims of how the mind works." ​

So the proposal of the Buddhist tradition lies in identifying ourselves with those aspects that bring us closer to revealing the  Tathagatagarbha  or the matrix of buddhahood, the awakened potential of our mind, and softening those that only make the shell harder. Therefore, and according to Lama Norbu, as we perceive our mind, so we will suffer: if we identify with the accessory layers of our experience (egoism, vanity, anger, etc.), instead of with the awakened potential, we will not understand what it takes for our potential to hatch.  

In this activity we will delve into this exciting topic, because there is no time to lose and much to gain: discovering the true potential of our mind will radically transform our experience.

This activity can be done completely (from 12 to 17) or only a part (from 15 to 17):


The  From April 12 to 15 we will dedicate ourselves fundamentally to meditation, to reduce the speed and noise of our minds. In this way, we will have prepared ourselves to receive the teachings in a much more effective and profound way.


From 15 in the afternoon to 17 in the afternoon, the teachings, debate and discussion will take on greater prominence. This part of the activity can be followed  online from home.

In this way, we will follow the classical learning method in Buddhism: listening, contemplation and meditation. Listening refers to exposure to what the teachings or teachers have said - or say - and understanding it on an intellectual level. Contemplation involves seeing how what we have learned during exposure to the Dharma affects us personally: it is about rooting the Dharma in our lives. Meditation involves either getting used to dwelling in the truth of these teachings or paving the way for us to better receive these teachings.
