About us

We are an international group of young people* who share an interest in Buddhist thought and practice. Most of us are part of the Rigpa Sangha and we welcome people from any background!

You can find us in Austria, Australia, France, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Nepal, Switzerland & the United Kingdom.

*between 18 and 35ish years old


The Shyönnu Spirit

is to bring open mindedness, a fresh spark and a creative outlook to whatever we do - our events, practice and life in general.

We aim to create a sense of community and friendship that supports young people to work with their minds and hearts amidst the challenges of modern life.

What does ‘Rigpé Shyönnu’ mean? It is Tibetan and literally means youthfulness (shyönnu) of the innermost nature of mind (rigpa).


Every summer and winter we organise international retreats. Throughout the year, we also hold other local events in Amsterdam, Berlin, Cologne, London and other cities.

To find out more about our upcoming events, follow our Facebook page or sign up to our newsletter.
