“Learning to live well with others involves living well with every aspect of our minds.”— Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche

Dr. Friends

Ripa Awareness Meditation (RAM) is a simple and effective method to stabilize the mind using SHAMATA, a millenary technique that uses breathing as a support to develop “mental calm”. Once the mind is settled, aspects of VIPASSANA meditation, or “penetrating vision”, are introduced, facilitating approaches that free the mind from conceptual fabrication.  Attentive presence and mindfulness work together to help us accept life situations as they are and make them the very object of our meditative practice.

The Ripa Awareness Meditation (RAM) method was developed by Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche, authentic master of Tibetan Buddhism of the Ripa lineage.

In this online weekend, Geneviève Hamelet, a senior instructor and long time student of Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche, will guide participants through the most salient aspects of this meditation technique, to experience calm abiding and discover insight.

Geneviève Hamelet has been practicing meditation for over 25 years; a student of Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche, she is the Director of Ripa Awareness Meditation programmes, entrusted with the responsibility to develop and train RAM instructors. She has participated since 2009 in the development of Mindfulness and MBSR programmes in French-speaking countries, within the ADM (Association pour le développement de la Mindfulness), of which she is a founding member and President.
