Practice Groups 

"I came here to teach you meditation!"
 Chögyam Trungpa

We often heard Reggie and other teachers saying that practice, genuine and unbiased experience, is not only the essence of this lineage, but the only path to true liberation. So we hope that this website will over time become a helpful tool for everyone in Europe to find the support that is needed.

Here you'll find a list of local or online practice groups and some guidelines that you might find helpful.

If you are leading a practice group or planning to start one, let us know through this form.

"If we want to contribute to the flourishing of the European Sangha,
job number one is our practice!" - Reggie Ray

The best way to deeply explore the practices and to connect with sangha friends from all over Europe is during retreat.
