The Path of Love

EIAB Retreat  (EIAB, Waldbröl, Germany)
Unity and Diversity
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, one of the corner stones of his Message. Inayat Khan sailed to the West in 1910 and brought Sufism to the West as a universal approach to discover our heart quality as leading principle in life.
The retreat is donation based, according to the Buddhist principle of dana.
