BodyTalk Access-Health Empowerment in 10 Minutes
      The goal of BodyTalk Accessl is to provide the layperson, family and community with a simple set of energy-based techniques to make health maintenance and the management of daily health challenges accessible.
The BodyTalk System is a well-established system of healthcare utilizing state-of-the-art energy medicine in a safe and comprehensive manner. Its power is based on increasing the levels of internal communication within the body -- stimulating the body's own ability to regain and maintain a healthy balance.

     The BodyTalk System normally utilizes an elaborate protocol that requires intensive training. But the International BodyTalk Association has recognized the critical need for a simplified version of the system to provide access to many of the key benefits of BodyTalk to as many people as possible.

Dzogchen Meditation Center
A Center for the Study and Practice of Tibetan Tantric Buddhism
Sunday Public Talks:
October 9th 10:30 til 12:00 - Precious Human Birth: The Meaning of Human Life
What is the meaning of our lives or better yet how do we spend them in the most meaningful way? A truly human birth is unique and special in the sense that we are capable of seeing beyond our conditioning and therefore can attain Buddhahood. Yet our human life, as precious an opportunity as it is, is fleeting. This opportunity will be lost and if we haven't developed our recognition of our unconditioned nature we will be carried to other realms of existence where this possibility is lost.
