Meditations for a clear, still mind

City Retreat over Pentecost

Saturday & Sunday 10:00am–5:00pm / Monday 10:00am–12:30pm

This special city retreat over pentecost offers the opportunity to discover our own mind in order to experience our potential for lasting inner peace and happiness.

There will be guided meditations on the different levels of mind, which will lead to a deeper understanding of the nature of our own mind; which is clarity – like empty like space and functions to know and perceive things.

These meditations enable us to stop our distractions and allow us to experience a deep stillness and clarity of our own mind, which lead to a state of wellbeing and peace within us.

What to expect

There will be ten guided meditations throughout this retreat. In each session there will be given a short explanation on a particular subject of the retreat followed by a guided meditation. At the beginning of each meditation, there will be short chanted Buddhist prayers which serve as preparation for the actual meditation.

During the retreat session breaks, there will be tea, cake and a vegetarian / vegan lunch on offer. The meditation room will be a silent area throughout the whole retreat, for those who like to stay in calm and meditative space. The gardens and café offer plenty of opportunity to relax and enjoy the company of like-minded people.
