Calmness and clarity

A weekend of meditation, reflection and renewal

We take a weekend to pause, relax body and mind and reflect on what is really important in life. How can we interpret and apply the timeless insights of the Buddhist teachings to our busy lives and the individual and collective challenges of our time? Can we find peace in the midst of it all? Simple instructions and meditation practices with mindfulness of body and breath, complemented by mindful movement, create the framework for calmness and clarity.

On this weekend retreat we will keep a “noble” silence most of the time to support settling and to invite an open, relaxed and easeful way of being. There will be opportunities for questions and sharing.
The course is suitable for beginners and advanced practitioners alike. The course language will be mainly English.
