About the Center

In 1991 Lama Sönam (a French meditation teacher in the Karma Kagyu Lineage) started to give meditation courses in Heidelberg for interested people. What started in a small room with 2-3 persons, is now a stable meditation group, meeting regularly to meditate together. Lama Sönam is guiding the lay retreat center Dhagpo Dargye Ling in France, which became a Bodhi Path center later. The group in Heidelberg is closely connected to this place. We ourselves decided in 2011 to join the Bodhi Path organization, founded by Shamar Rinpoche. In the Bodhi Path centers it is taught in an authentic way how the teachings of the Buddha can be applied in our daily life situation in the Western context.
