In deze retraite cultiveren we Opmerkzaamheid, die kwaliteit van geest die leidt tot geluk en vrijheid. Wanneer de geest ondersteund wordt door heilzame kwaliteiten en niet langer vertroebeld is door hebzucht, boosheid en verwarring kunnen we de werkelijkheid gaan zien zoals die is.
In de eenvoud van het van moment tot moment observeren van wat er is leren we diep gewortelde conditioneringen, die pijnlijk zijn voor onszelf en voor anderen, loslaten. Zo kunnen onze aangeboren wijsheid en compassie zichtbaar worden en groeien.

The programme involves formal meditation, meditation instructions, talks and discussions. In addition, there will be working meditation for about an hour each day.
During this weeklong retreat, we will explore and cultivate the practice of awareness that leads to well-being and liberation. When the mind is supported by skilful qualities and is unclouded by confusion, greed, and negativity, reality can be accurately recognized. We are able to see that everything that appears is the natural display of impersonal conditions giving rise to their lawful effect. With the ease of simply knowing our own experience moment by moment, deeply conditioned habits of mind that lead to suffering for ourselves and others are weakened. Natural wisdom and compassion can arise and grow.
This retreat will be held in Noble Silence and is suitable for beginners as well as more experienced meditators. People from all walks of life are warmly welcome.
