17th Karmapa Thaye Dordje

Our vision

Is to establish a base for the growth of Diamond Way Buddhism in the four participating countries (Belgium, France, Netherlands, UK) through co-operation on major projects.

Our aims

  • To gain experience in running courses and retreats and to reinforce friendships
  • To develop the infrastructure to run events to learn from our national experiences and to support each other
  • To develop and establish our capabilities and potential to host major courses with Lama Ole and to organise empowerments and teachings from great Diamond Way Buddhist teachers.

About us

The Channel Project
In June 2003, during the Karma Guen course in Velez-Malaga, Spain, the idea was born to organise a course for students of Lama Ole Nydahl from the countries along the Channel. We actually discovered that Paris wanted to organise a course with Brussels, Brussels with Rotterdam, Rotterdam with London, London with The Hague and The Hague with Amsterdam. There was a representative from each of these centres at the Karma Guen course and when our separate plans came to light, we decided to make a course for all of us! We named it ‘The Channel Project’: a joint effort in which English, Belgian, French and Dutch students of Lama Ole work together on the basis of friendship with the use of our combined resources.

Through the activity of organising this project together we aim to get to know each other and learn from our collective abilities. So far this has resulted in a yearly Channel Tour, a yearly Channel Retreat, the start of a Statue Filling Event and the first Channel Countries EC weekend!

Anyone who wishes to offer their abilities and ideas to help realise this Channel Project is most welcome! Inhabitants of the Channel countries who would like to help can contact us.
