– The Myth of Meditation –

With Parina and Vassika

Meditation is not a question of technique. It is an ever-deepening experience of ourselves in relation to the world and to other beings, a means of seeing reality ever more clearly.
During this retreat, which will be largely in silence, we will learn to ground ourselves in the here and now, turn towards our experience and see through into its true nature. This journey will be accompanied by the qualities of the elements and a touch of poetry and ritual.

The retreat is for experienced meditators. If you are not sure, please contact us.

The retreat is international and will be in English.

We start at 5 PM on the 22nd and finish at 12 PM on the 29th of December.
