July 4: Day of Mindfulness and Transmission of the Five Mindfulness Trainings

On the 4th of July we will have a Day of Mindfulness in the temple in Glostrup. Community members who wish to take the Five Mindfulness Trainings will join in a ceremony and receive the trainings. On the same day Brother Thay Phap An, Brother Thay Phap Tru and Sister Song Nghiem will treat us with Dharma talks and more.


If you feel an interest in committing yourself to the practice, to develop your practice deeper, then taking the Five Mindfulness trainings could be a very good opportunity for you. This is only the second time we offer this opportunity in Denmark. Aspirations for the Five Mindfulness Trainings should be send to interbeingdenmark@gmail.com no later than first of June to give Br. Thay Phap Tru time to look deeply into the aspiration and find your Dharma name. We strongly recommend that you join a Five Mindfulness Trainings study group if you plan to receive them.


Buddhist Psychology by Br. Thay Phap Tru - March-May

Thay will be giving ten Dharma talks about Buddhist psychology, giving members of Interbeing Denmark the oppotunity to dig deep into the Dharma of the mind. These teachings will be in the temple in Glostrup. Book via interbeingdenmark@gmail.com - your registration is only valid upon confirmation from us. New registrations will not be accepted after the first day of class.


The class will meet on the following Wednesdays, from 19:00-21:00: 21/2, 28/2, 6/3, 13/3, 20/3, 3/4, 10/4, 17/4, 24/4, 8/5


General Assembly - May

Facilitation Training

In cooperation with Dharma teachers from the Order of Interbeing, new and upcoming facilitators will receive introductions to how to facilitate activities, topics for reading, an introduction to the bell and how to use it, how to facilitate Dharma sharings, and related topics. These lessons will be available online in 2024, when sufficient interest has been registered.


Study Groups

We offer study groups for our members where we read about the Dharma and share about what we've learned. These groups will meet online. The next Five Mindfulness Trainings study group will be in 2024, consisting of six online meetings held on weekdays in the evening.


Five Mindfulness Training Recitations - Online

For members who have already received the Five Mindfulness Trainings, we will hold online recitations to keep the practice alive even for those who cannot join the recitation in the temple or who would like to recite more often. The first online recitation of the Five and Fourteen Mindfulness Trainings took place on January 6, and further recitations will be scheduled as needed.
