PUBLIC LECTURE – Relationships



During this lecture Lama Jigmé Namgyal will talk about the topic relationships in the broadest sense of the word. Our whole lives are filled with relationships, from the very first moment we were born, even months before already! Relationships come in various forms and types: the relationship with our parents, with our friends, children, acquaintances, colleagues, the sports club, you name it. And of course with ourselves, but also with total strangers, our environment, nature, etc.. Some relationships are pleasant and give us energy, whilst others can bring quite some stress, or can bring up jealousy or even anger within us and drain our energy.

How can we develop and maintain healthy, peaceful and satisfying relationships? How do we deal with expectations, emotions and values and what is réal love?


This Saturday Lama Jigmé Namgyal will discuss the following (sub)topics:

  1. How can we deal with emotions and expectations of ourselves and others,
  2. Communication in relationships

Lama Jigmé Namgyal

Lama Jigmé Namgyal was born into a nomad family in Golog, in the eastern part of Tibet, where he studied Buddhism from a young age. His root teacher was Khenpo Jigmé Phuntsok Rinpoche, with whom he studied at the university of Serthar Larung Gar for nine years.

After consulting his teachers, Lama Jigmé Namgyal decided to leave Tibet for Europe. He founded the Tibetan Cultural Centre in Luxembourg as well as the Phuntsok Chö Ling Buddhist Centre in Rotterdam. Furthermore, he raised Golog Support Foundation to provide medical care and education in remote areas of Golog, and Compassionate Leadership, aimed at bringing ethical decision taking into corporate management through training in mindfulness and compassion. This also includes an on-going program at the Dutch army.

Lama Jigmé has much experience in spiritually accompanying the dying and is also deeply interested in interreligious dialogue. Through his pithy sense of humor, he is able to connect with his Western audience in an open and direct way, and to communicate an experience beyond words.

Love to see you there!
