THIS RETREAT HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO THE COVID-19 SITUATION
Surrounded by the beautiful hills of Fara Sabina, hosted by the Monastery of Clarisse we investigate the habits of the mind and of the heart. If we clearly observe the processes pertaining to body and mind, we can detach, let go, and allow for greater freedom, wisdom and compassion to arise. The retreat can be attended for 7 and 14 days.

With relaxed and friendly attention we investigate the habits of body, mind and heart. If we clearly observe the processes pertaining to body and mind, we can detach, let go, and allow for greater freedom, wisdom and compassion to arise. This enables us to follow our creativity and genuine interests. The meditation process aims at seeing through our illusions, relieving the burden of having to defend these. To obtain this insight it is important to observe the phenomena in body and mind in friendly acceptance.
