“Everything we encounter and perceive in our daily life is a product of our imagination, but because we believe in the illusions we create, they become such deeply rooted mental habits that we completely forget they are little more than fantasy”

Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

Siddhartha’s Intent Europe, founded in 1986 by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, is member of the international collective under the Siddhartha’s Intent umbrella. SIE shares the collective vision of SI to create an environment which facilitates connection with the wisdom of the Buddha through the Khyentse lineage and the Rime (non-sectarian) tradition. SIE offers a number of opportunities for study and practice including weekend workshops, online studies, and vipashyana retreats. See the menu above for details of our programs.
