K2232-1: The Way Of Love And Understanding- Summer-Retreat De weg van liefde en begrip - Zomer Retraite

09.08.2022 - 14.08.2022

Often we deal too much with short-term goals and are blind to the long-term consequences of our actions. In this way, we cause a lot of suffering on both an individual and global level.
This retreat gives us a chance to pause and look at our lives in depth. According to the Buddha, our suffering arises for the most part from our false perceptions. We tend to confuse consumption with happiness, sexual desire with love, fame and fortune with security, and desire with our real needs. Most of the time, we look through the eyes of discrimination and ignore our interconnectedness. In this way, we draw an illusory line between ourselves and other canteens, between ourselves and other animals, plants, oceans and Mother Earth. Only true love can overcome these separations.
We want to have more time to take good care of ourselves, relieve tension and look deeply together at the effects of our triple karma (thinking, speaking and acting) on ourselves and on our Mother Earth. Our shared energy of mindfulness, love, compassion and peace can make a big difference for ourselves and our entire planet. This big difference comes from our own mind and in this retreat we will take care of it with love and understanding.
