PATIENCE IS A SIGN OF LOVE

14.08.2017 - 19.08.2017

Retreat with the nuns and monks from Plum Village and EIAB

Every day we witness our own limitations and shortcomings as well as those of our fellow human beings among family, friends, at work and in our society.  Oftentimes we are impatient and overly critical when dealing with weaknesses and mistakes in ourselves and others.
When we practice patience, we also practice mindfulness. Only with patience we will learn to see and understand ourselves and others more clearly and deeply. By stepping back we may take a look at our own pain and the suffering of others. Then we may act with understanding and compassion.
Patience will help us to allow each other the space needed to develop and grow our potential. With the help of patience we can live a life without judgements and even learn to forgive.
In this retreat we will nourish the essential qualities of our patience so that we may live in relationships based on deep insight and deep understanding.

Retreat language: English with Dutch translation.

We will offer a separate program for children and teens in Dutch.
Registration on our website only: www.eiab.eu.
