What we're about
This is an official public group of practicioners of an ancient teaching called Dzogchen or 'The Great Perfection' in Holland. The Dutch Dzogchen Community was established in the Netherlands more than 25 years ago.
Creating this group we are not aiming to gather as much members or as much profit as possible. The idea is to create a possibility to learn about the Teaching for the ones who has interest in it.
This spiritual path, which is open to all, involves working towards self-awareness; personal freedom is an essential aspect so there is no obligation to follow rules or take monastic vows.
The fundamental practice consist of reaching a deep knowledge of oneself and one's essential existence through the various experiences of daily life.
For this reason, Dzogchen is particularly well suited to the needs of modern society.
The International Dzogchen Community, organised by an eminent Tibetan scholar and Dzogchen master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu is thus seen as a place for sharing and exchange for people who share the same path towards knowledge.

Being aware of your state is a main practice of a Dzogchen practicioner. In order to help achieving that Dzogchen Community organises various activity for Community members. From time to time we organize "open" events for interested people outside the Dzogchen Community so everybody can have a possibility to meet this knowledge.
