K2231-1: CONFIDENCE IN DIFFICULT TIMES - Summer Retreat [fully booked and only waiting list placement is possible !]

01.08.2022 - 06.08.2022

Notice: Retreat is fully booked and only waiting list placement is possible !!!

How can we avoid negative expectations in this time of global crises -- global warming, pandemics, strengthening of anti-democratic forces and general uncertainty about a technology-dominated future? The hope that everything will turn out all right after all is of little help in calming our fears about the future.
Courage to live does not depend on a positive outcome, but on our inner attitude. And this is our chance, because we can influence our inner attitude.
Inner freedom even in adverse circumstances is essentially the fruit of meditation and compassionate wisdom. When we cultivate inner freedom, compassion and wisdom, we find a confidence also in the face of difficulties that gives us the strength to work for a positive future here and now.
