New Year’s Silent Retreat 3-6.01.

Silent retreats are, and always have been, an extraordinary opportunity for physical, mental and spiritual renewal. Spending time together in meditation and silence is a very powerful way to experience peace of mind, build up an inner calm and deepen insight. The monastery’s peaceful, quiet and spiritual atmosphere provides the perfect environment for our inner journey.

We practice sitting and walking meditation, breathing techniques, mindful movements and chanting. There will be the opportunity to speak with the retreat leader for individual instruction in meditation practice and for discussion of difficulties.

The retreat is suited both for exploring meditation for the first time and for deepening an established practice.

Retreat leader:

• Professional Training in MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) with Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn and Dr. Saki Santorelli
• Zen, Qi Gong, Hatha Yoga, Healing Songs, Breath Work

After having worked for more than 20 years as a school teacher I had to quit due to illness. On my long journey to healing I have found inner peace in meditation and have learned to follow the voice of my heart. I want to support others to find the source of their inner strength and walk the way of their heart with courage and joy.
