Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed by what daily comes towards you via tv, newspaper, mobile phone, internet, work, people, family, relationships etc?
Are you unable to stop the incessant self-talk that is going on in your mind?
How often do you wish you could switch it off? Or turn down the volume?
Do you have the feeling that your mind is living a life on its own?
It is possible to calm the mind. You can learn and apply simple tools to get hold of the mind, find balance, and give it a rest.
We will practice several techniques to center and calm the mind during sessions of sitting meditation, walking meditation and spending time in nature. These techniques can easily be applied in daily life.
What to expect in the retreat:
- Plenty of time to practice in an easeful way
- Experience the benefits of a peaceful and focused mind
- Learn how to sit properly and how to set up a daily meditation practice
- Get a taste of what it means to be in retreat
This retreat is suitable for anyone new to meditation as well as for those who are already familiar with it: they can deepen their understanding and practice.
This retreat will be conducted in silence
