THIS RETREAT WILL BE HOSTED BOTH IN REAL LIFE AND ONLINE
You will be introduced to simple methods from the Tibetan Tradition to be more at ease with your feelings and disturbing thoughts. We are exploring ways to be more relaxed and at ease with the challenges of your inner life and your body.
The retreat is suitable for beginners of any background who want to start their journey with profound and easy to apply techniques and experienced students who want to deepen their practice.
The journey will be a balanced mixture of guided meditations, mindful yoga, walking meditation, short lectures, discussions, and silence.
You will learn time-honoured ways for experiencing and resting right now in your natural state of inner peace, the ultimate source of lasting happiness.
All teachings are in English.
Most of the retreat will be in silence. There will be opportunities to ask questions during the sessions.
