Activities / Agenda / Veranstaltungen

 

As this retreat will be in EIAB, the monastery of Thich Nhat Hanh and his disciples, we will partly follow the daily routine of the monastery and its sisters and brothers. We will mix this experience with the teachings of Hazrat Inayat Khan on the Unity of Religious Ideals.
The retreat is donation based, according to the Buddhist principle of dana.

19 - 22   Samark Sesshin
Zen & Zikr 

In a Sesshin, we alternate dancing with meditating. We opt for a longer weekend, so all can really get into the rhythm of a Sesshin. A wonderful way to go deeper inside and let the dances do their inner work. To further the inner process, part of the weekend will be in silence. 
Be sure to register in time, as the two previous Sesshins filled up very early.
