Weekly physical Vipassana meditation session in Karunika, Meerhuizenplein 38, Amsterdam.
The evening consists of a walking and sitting meditation. Guidance Aad Verboom.
The sitting meditation on Thursday is shorter than on Monday evening (online) and there is more guidance during the meditations. If you have little or no experience, join the Thursday evening sessions. After the meditation there is an opportunity to ask questions.
The meditation room is equipped with meditation mats and cushions. It is handy to wear comfortable clothing.
Please note the measures against Covid-19
From our point of view on buddhist ethics Covid-19 is a risk for teachers and participants as well as for those present to contaminate others. We have therefore chosen to limit access to physical activities to those who can show themselves to be protected. This according to the measures of the Dutch government (https://www.government.nl/topics/coronavirus-covid-19/covid-certificate).
If you wish to join, make sure you can show:
- the Corona check app with the QR code, or
- the ‘yellow book’, filled in by the GGD or your general practitioner, or
- proof of a PCR test with negative result which is not older than 36 hours, or
- test yourself with a self test of good quality, with negative result, done no longer than 24 hours before the event. Since the latter option is hard to show or prove, we will trust your personal statement on the matter. In case of doubt a new self-test is required, provided by Dhammadipa.
We are aware of the fact that in this way proof of protection against Covid-19 does not include proof from ‘alternative’ or ‘non-regular’ medicine. We hope that this will be possible in the near future. For questions and comments please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The evenings are given on the basis of dana, with a guideline of € 10 as a contribution to the fixed costs, such as the rent. Dana means generosity.
The dana can be offered via a bank transfer to the Dhammadipa, Amsterdam account number NL85 INGB 0005019113.
There is also a dana box so that you may offer dana in cash.
