Dear Heidi, thank you so much to you and all the Ehipassiko people for having us at Antwerp, and for showing us your beautiful hospitality.

Wie geeft wat hij heeft, is waard dat hij leeft.

I hope I got this right?


#65

Yes, completely right :slight_smile:

Thanks so much for coming to Belgium, Bhante @sujato! :slightly_smiling_face: :blue_heart: And it’s hard to describe my appreciation for everyone who made this retreat possible, including @sabbamitta and Ven @Vimala. It was magical. :lightsaber: :anjal: :sparkling_heart:

(I’m the tall guy left of Bhante :grin:)

Thanks for posting the picture, @Robbie! You can find more pics of this awesome place—and the awesome people of the retreat—here. :smile:

Just as a nice aside: The place has a long standing history of spiritual practice. It goes back to a Christian Saint called Saint-Jean l’Agneau (St. John the lamb, because of his peaceful character) in the 7th century. He is said to have been a great meditator, and even the frogs respected his meditation and kept silent in order not to disturb him!

In the 1980s a Tibetan center has been established as one of the first in Europe. We felt very warmly welcomed by their organization!
