MEDITATION & RELAXATION RETREAT

Vipassana (Mindfulness) Meditation has been described as: “a way of self-transformation through self-observation. It focuses on the deep interconnection between mind and body, which can be experienced directly by disciplined attention to the physical sensations that form the life of the body, and that continuously interconnect and condition the life of the mind. It is this observation-based, self-exploratory journey to the common root of mind and body that dissolves mental impurity, resulting in a balanced mind full of love and compassion. Life becomes characterized by increased awareness, non-delusion, self-control and peace.”

FOR STRESS REDUCTION, FEELINGS OF WELL-BEING AND HAPPINESS

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an expression of mindfulness tailored to health and well-being in our contemporary society. Mindfulness has also become a core element of a number of psychological interventions such as Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT).

Specific themes and areas of focus include seamless cultivation of mindfulness, through both formal and informal practices, in silence, conversation, dialogue and mindful approaches to the experience and expression of stress, pain, grief, and anxiety within us.

This retreat is more than a meditation retreat only. We offer a unique opportunity with our programs. It is tailor-made to the individual participant or group and connected with life-themes that ones bring in.
