Ganesh Puja // Edie Stern
9.00 - 10.00, Zuiderkerk
"Because it is the beginning of the IPC and this session represents a new beginning. I have always felt attracted to what Ganesh stands for: new beginnings, courage and wisdom to look at the obstacles in your life."
Radically Happy // Phakchock Rinpoche and Erric Solomon
12.30 - 13.30, Vondelkerk
"The term ‘radically happy’ appeals to me very much. Who doesn't want that? I am curious about the Buddhist view on happiness and hope to gain insights about how they describe it so beautifully: 'Get to know your own mind and discover how a slight but radical shift can transform your life’."
There is no App for Happiness // Max Storm
15.00 - 16.30, De Duif
"A continuous distraction of a to-do list, social media, mail, etc., result in the fact that I mainly live in my rational brain during the day. On the one hand, it's nice because I get things done. On the other hand, I notice that in the evening or at the weekend, when there is no more work to be done, I check my mail and scroll on Instagram without really perceiving anything. This gives my emotional brain no chance to unwind and relax. I am now slowly trying to change this by writing down my “magic moments” before I go to sleep: moments when my heart speaks. Hoping that it will increase. Max Storm will ask 10 questions that he probably wants your heart to answer: I'm very curious about that!"
The Secret to Finding your Life's Purpose // Hector Ramos
9.00 - 10.30, De Duif
"This session is also focused on reconnecting with your heart. As my ratio often wins, I like to give more attention to my heart this weekend. I have also attended a lesson from Hector Ramos through The House of Yoga, so I am very curious about his wisdom talk."
The Sky Like Mind // Whit Hornsberger
11.00 - 12.30, Zuiderkerk
"A meditation and yoga class with a Buddhist background. I use Headspace every day to meditate and Whit often talks about this too. If your thoughts take you along in a repetitive pattern, like ‘I really have to finish of that guide today' then you can look at them from a distance and see that such a thought is only a small cloud in the whole sky, which gives room to view my thoughts again with more compassion. I look forward to exploring this more in this session."
Feeding your Demons // Lama Tsultrim Allione
13 - 14.30, De Duif
"This seems intense to me but I find the principle of allowing to feel/experience your demons instead of fighting against them to be very interesting and learn more about it."
Closing Inner Peace // Tijn Touber
18.00- 19.00, De Duif
"Two years ago I also followed a talk and meditation of Tijn Touber during the Inner Peace Conference and I became so calm and relaxed that I like to end the conference that way."
