Berlin Pragmatic Dharma Group meets
Answer
1/2/13 2:22 PM
Hi all,

Following the success of the London DhO meets last year and my move to Berlin, there has been some interest in a group here in Germany. As such, the first meet will be on Tuesday 18th December at 7pm, at the Sankt Oberholz coffee bar on Rosenthaler Straße.

I imagine this will be an informal affair to meet and greet, discuss our various practices, and decide what we want out of such a group. Those who have expressed an interest have practices including kundalini yoga, noting, jhana, magick and complete newbies, so I expect it to be an interesting conversation at the very least.

People of all practices and all levels of attainment are very welcome, an open and enquiring interest in awakening being the only prerequisite. Lurkers as well as posters here are welcome too- either register your interest on this thread or simply turn up.

We have a Facebook group as well as a Sit With Me page, the latter site being down for maintenance at the moment, both of which you're free to use for discussion and socialising.

I will be turning up at 18:45 to secure a table- you'll see us by the bunch of meditation books I'll leave out as a signpost. If you're shy then either send me a private message or turn up early and I'll introduce you to other people.

See you on the 18th,
Liam

...well call me what you want..even late for dinner. i missed this post on its original passthrough. i doubt i could have made it that day anyway but first...Liam! Welcome to Germany. I live way down south of Stuttgart out in the country but with appropriate warning could possibly make the next hookup.

thanks for the motivation and associated action.

Hi there guys,

We had an encouraging start- people asking very specific, targeted questions about each others' practices and establishing that we were interested in the same thing. There was equal representation between women and men too which I felt was a big positive. There are growing numbers interested in attending the next meet.

We're looking to have a regular meet every couple of weeks as well as others depending on people visiting Berlin, wanting to go to particular events, wanting to lead the group in a particular practice etc., so feel free to give us a shout on the forum here or at the Facebook page for the group if you're in this neck of the woods.

Next meet 6th January

The next meet will be:

Sunday 6th January
2pm
Tiergarten, Berlin (nearest U-Bahn Kürfurstenstraße)

Send a message to the Facebook page or a PM here on DhO to me for the address, as this will be at a private residence. All are very welcome. I'd like to do some ping-pong noting amongst other things.

The next meet will be on Sunday 27th January at 2pm, at the Sankt Oberholz coffee bar on Rosenthaler Straße, opposite the U-Bahn.

People of all practices (or not) and all levels of attainment are very welcome, an open and enquiring interest in awakening being the only prerequisite. Lurkers as well as posters here are welcome too- either register your interest on this thread or simply turn up.

Our last meets have not been public as they've been held in people's homes - come along to a public one if you want to be invited to the more practice-focused meets. In the last two, members have led the group in metta, round-robin noting and kundalini yoga.

We have a Facebook page as well as a Sit With Me page, the latter site being down for maintenance at the moment, both of which you're free to use for discussion and socialising.

I will be turning up at 13:30 to secure a table- you'll see us by the bunch of meditation books I'll leave out as a signpost. If you're shy then either send me a private message or turn up early and I'll introduce you to other people.

See you on the 27th,

I don't live in Germany but I am guessing you mean January rather than December here.

The next meeting will be on Saturday 27th at noon. If the weather is good it will be outdoors. We will meet in the Tiergarten near Grosser Stern and http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berliner_Siegessäule

It's a tall monument with a golden angel on top. If you are standing in front of it, facing the angel, take the left hand path into the garden. It should lead immediately to a statue of Bismark, raised above four statues, one in each direction. We will meet behind Bismark. If the weather is bad, then continue down the path behind the statue of Bismark, and you should see an English Teahouse off to the left of the path a ways.

Feel free to message me privately and ask for my number if you are planning to come.

Meets will now be every first Sunday of the month at 12 midday. The next meet will be:

Sunday 2nd June
12 midday
Balzac Coffee, Potsdamer Platz 10, 10785 Berlin

Nearest S-Bahn: Potsdamer Platz
Nearest U-Bahn: Potsdamer Platz (Leipziger Platz)

All are welcome, regardless of experience, attainment or coolness of yoga pants.

The venue is accessible to wheelchair users.

I will be at the venue at 11:45, so if you are shy and want to come early to be introduced to the group, feel free.

Most of the action goes on at our Facebook page (as well as most of the posting about the meets, oops). There is a closed group for those who have attended at least one meet and want to come to the more practice-oriented sessions.

Apologies for the late posting, the search for an ideal venue continues!

Hope to see you all there. - Liam

I'm also interested in the current status of the Berlin DhO division!
The reason for this is I'm traveling to Berlin for business next month, and will be there from Thursday to Sunday, 19th to 23rd of March. It would be inspiring to meet like-minded people and exchange ideas! So, anybody in Berlin interested in an informal meeting during that time? emoticon

Hi there

Is the PM function back? It was turned off a few weeks ago.

mon key mind at hac trn dot ch

no spaces, and replace the "at" and "dot" with the obvious.

PM function is being reworked for 6.2 and updated so that it doesn't hang like before, should be done within a week, only costing about $500, so that is pretty good for these sorts of things.

I will put it up as soon as it is done and working.

New way to coordinate DhO Berlin Meetups:

I created a mailing list, since mail is still the least common denominator when it comes to connecting people on the internet.

To subscribe, send mail from your account to:

dho-berlin-subscribe@lists.hactrn.ch

Or visit the following web page.

DhO-Berlin -- Berlin Dharma Overground Meetup

Cheers,

Google did not like the way I set up my mailing list, so it refused to deliver mail from it earlier today.

If you tried to subscribe a gmail address today but never got a reply, please try again. It should work now.

Thanks, and sorry for the inconvenience,
Florian
