The Channel Project

The Channel Project brings together friends from Diamond Way centres in France, Belguim, Holland and the UK. The main activities are an annual summer meditation retreat and a channel countries tour with Lama Ole Nydahl. These activities are now part of the Diamond Way European calendar and a wonderful opportunity for friends to meet and work together.

The Channel Retreat is hosted in a different city each year and is an enriching and inspirational experience. There are experienced Buddhist practitioners who guide the meditations and give talks on aspects of Buddhas timeless teachings. Meditation is a major part of the Diamond Way practice so the weekend contains a lot of meditation practice, although even with so much Dharma activity there is always time for socialising and strengthening bonds with our friends.

The Channel Tour
Each year in the Autumn, we have the opportunity to spend time with our Lama travelling to several cities in our channel countries. In each city the Lama gives a public lecture which is organised by friends resident in that country. It is a very special experience and a real opportunity to spend time with the Lama with such a small group of friends. The channel tour really gives the experience of being part of the Diamond Way, Karma Kagyu family, and this is why the channel tour is known to friends as the “Hidden Jewel”

Private: Channel Retreat

The Channel Retreat

Each year one of the Channel Countries organizes a retreat weekend.

A weekend where there is time for teachings, explanations, questions, friendship and parties.
We invite an international Travel Teacher for teachings, but also provide the possibility to ask questions or get explanations from one of the many local, national and international travel teachers that the Channel Countries have to offer.

It is an excellent opportunity to get to know the Channel Countries, the efforts that we take and to see the common development we make. You will have a chance to find out what is going on in Paris, London, Brussels and Amsterdam. But also in the many other centers and groups that we have.

There will be time to do your personal meditations or to get explanations for your current or next practice.

And yes! We would not be true Kagyu’s if we would not take time for our friendship and PARTY!

There you go: reasons enough to join the Channel Retreat!

Next Channel Retreat is in Spring 2011 in France

TRAVELLING with Lama Ole Nydahl

This is an amazing opportunity to travel together with Lama Ole and a small group of friends through western Europe’s most famous cities: Paris, Rotterdam, Brussels, London Exeter and Manchester.

The Hidden Jewel
It is truly a Jewel! Every city you visit, every lecture you hear, every party you join, every Kagyu you meet: they are all jewels. How can you discover this treasure? Hidden somewhere in late autumn, when the days are shortening. Most are preparing for longer evening sessions or perhaps resting from an exciting summer filled with activity. Only a select group are able to travel on this exclusive tour, at the end of which
you will gain the great Kagyu family experience. It is a unique chance to see how hard our Lama works, how many hours, how many questions are answered and how he remains bright and clear as always when giving his lectures.

Events

The Channel Project organizes several annual events.

Our “Main Attraction” is the Channel Tour. A tour where you can travel through the Channel Countries together with Lama Ole. Every year the tour starts in one of the Channel Countries and travels in a Double Decker Bus from city to city.

Each year one of our countries hosts the Channel Retreat, where we work together on methods, action and friendship.

But there is a lot more to us: we organize statue filling events, special retreats and we work together by exchanging knowledge and information!

Channel Tour 2013

The Channel Tour 2013 is an amazing opportunity to travel in a small group with Lama Ole, from Brussels to Paris and to Karma Euzer Ling in Normandie.

The Hidden Jewel
Very rarely is there the opportunity to travel with Lama Ole and friends in such an exclusive group. The tour really gives the experience of being part of the Kagyu family. No wonder the tour is referred to as the “Hidden Jewel” when so much quality time can be spent in our Lama’s presence The chance to see for yourself how our Lama works so many hours, answers so many questions and still as inspirational as always when giving his lectures.

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.
