RETREATS AND DAY OF MINDFULNESS AUGUST 2018

06. - 11.08.   FINDING PEACE IN THE MIDST OF CHANGE.

Registration until 31 July 2018

German Retreat with the monks and nuns from the EIAB and Plum Village

Nothing stays the same from moment to moment. All is in a constant process of change. Often it is difficult, frightening and threatening for us when we experience this fundamental truth of life.

We try to repress our unpleasant experience and not to feel our fear and anxiety but all these attempts at avoidance are useless. Our fears and our deep need for security and comfort need our attention and care if we are going to find peace in impermanence.

Mindfulness will help us to find an inner balance in the midst of the challenges of daily life, the ups and downs of our relationships and our professsion and the changing society.

Most of the Dharma Talks will be in English with consecutive translation into German. There will be an English-speaking sharing group.

The children’s programme will be in German. There will also be a teens programme where English and German will be spoken.

13. - 18.08.  NOURISHING THE HAPPINESS WITHIN

Registration until 06 August 2018

Dutch Retreat with the monks and nuns from the EIAB and Plum Village

Usually we think that happiness depends on outer circumstances, but then we discover that our mind clings to negativity, criticism, worries and problems even though there are quite enough outer circumstances for us to be happy. In this retreat instead of looking for happiness in outer circumstances we shall turn inwards in order to see which of our patterns of behaviour are harmful for us and which insights offer us happiness and nourish our joy. Then we shall see that our happiness is due above all to our readiness to find it where it is- in the present moment.

The Dharma Talks and other activities will be in English or Dutch with consecutive translation. 

There will be a children’s programme in Dutch and teens programme in Dutch and English.
