Oneness Events

How can the divine Oneness be seen?
In beautiful forms, breathtaking wonders,
awe-inspiring miracles?
The Tao is not obliged to present itself
in this way.

If you are willing to be lived by it, you will
see it everywhere, even in the most
ordinary things.

Lao Tsu

Oneness Center in Bern, Switzerland

Deep inside every human being there is a place that connects us with our primal nature and gives us access to an inner wisdom. If individuals or groups make a connection with this inner core, they access the universal knowledge of unity and thus experience life from a broader perspective. The Oneness Center offers a space that allows us to learn how to access this simple and yet dynamic state of oneness individually and collectively, bringing it into our daily lives.

Buddha’s Daughters - History and Emancipation of the Tibetan Nuns

28. Februrary 2014, Bern at the Oneness Center
7pm - approx. 8:30pm, Talk with Noemi Brog

In the West, Buddhism has been very popular since the beginning of the 20th century. One of the reasons for that popularity is the fact that it addresses all human beings, independent of social origin or gender. Therefore it is even the more surprising that equality and gender issues are very present in Buddhism. Despite the fact that Tibetan nuns get less attention than Tibetan monks? How are Tibetan Buddhist nuns viewed today? How do they get supported in their pursuit of spiritual development?

The Secret of Forgiveness

28. March 2014, Bern at the Oneness Center
4:30pm - 7:30pm, Afternoon workshop with Natalie Knapp

We all carry around a list of things that we cannot forgive ourselves or others: big disappointments, small acts of unkindness or simply missed opportunities. This hidden list is sapping much of our energy. It keeps open past wounds and binds our energy until we are able to forgive. Only forgiveness can heal our open wounds and pave the way for wholeness and wellbeing.

But can everything be forgiven or are some things just unforgivable? What steps do we have to take in order to be able to truly and profoundly forgive?

In the workshop we will look at the secret of forgiveness, discover its life-enhancing power and try to take a few steps on the road to the soul's ultimate test. For understanding is an important part of forgiveness as the Indian poet and philosopher Rabindranath Tagor says: If we knew everything about each other, we would happily forgive each other.

Breath and Silence - The Power of Being

13. June 2014, Bern at the Oneness Center
4:30pm - 8:30pm, Seminar with Ursula Hofer

We often rush through our everyday lives and do our jobs with a lot of effort and willpower. Only rarely we allow ourselves moments of "being", because "being" is seen as a state of inactivity and inefficiency. This, however, is one of the big misunderstandings of our time. In a true state of being all things fall into place. Thoughts arrange themselves, emotional confusion is lifted and our relationship with ourselves and our environment starts to flow naturally. This creates a space that exists in the present moment and gives us access to a real power that nourishes us in order for us to give our life true meaning and act in a way that serves all of life. If we align ourselves with the breath and its rhythms we access this state of being naturally and we get given a connection to our innermost source that is waiting to pour forth into life. Basic breathing exercises, texts, and metitation supoort us in that process.
