About us -
The Rigpé Yeshé Children and Teenager Programme.
Rigpé Yeshé has the following aims:
- develop and hold programmes for children and teenagers to help them cultivate universal human values and explore questions about the world including interdependence and interconnectedness
- offer tools for cultivating mindfulness, meditation, awareness and compassion
- create the conditions for children and teenagers to develop genuine self-worth and to form meaningful connections with others, based on a sincere wish for their well-being and happiness.
Rigpé Yeshé is inspired by the universal and ethical values of the Buddhist tradition. Our wish is to offer young people tools to understand themselves better, to discover and connect confidently with their own inner resources, and to become true 'servants of peace' in all aspects of their lives.
We strongly supports the universal ethical and spiritual values that are the basis of all the world's great faiths and spiritual traditions. The programme proposes to help children and teenagers cultivate inner values such as contentment, compassion and altruism, which will allow them to have a meaningful life and to make responsible choices.
We aim to help young people to flourish on all levels: physical, emotional, intellectual, creative, ethical and spiritual. To do this, we accompany young people on a journey to discover their inner qualities and capacities, so that they understand themselves better and are able to make discerning choices about their lives.
