Seven (7) day Silent Meditation retreat February 17-24, 2019

(Lot Heijke) #1

A silent group retreat offers a unique possibility to practice together, deepening your experiences and supporting the development of insight. Suitable for mindfulness teachers as well as for those relatively new to meditation.
This is a secular Mindfulness retreat, which means it is offered without traditional (buddhist) forms and rituals. The retreat will be taught in the style of the western insight meditation tradition (vipassana), with sitting and walking meditation, and yoga. We will be in silence for most of the time. Guidance, talks as well as (personal) interviews are being offered throughout by the teachers.

Lot Heijke and Maria van Balen, both certified MBSR teachers, teacher-trainers, yoga- and meditation teachers.

The retreat takes place in Skalka, beautifully located at approx. 1 hour north of Prague, Czech Republic (closer to the German border), with single and shared rooms and dorms. A ride share service will be offered closer to the start date of the retreat.

February 17-24, 2019. We start in the late afternoon of Sunday Febr. 17th, and end with lunch on the closing Sunday.

The fee for the whole week when staying in a single room: E 305; and E 295 when staying in a shared room. The fee only includes room and all food & drink during your stay.
This retreat is dana-based. This means that only travel and accomodationcosts of the teachers are covered, but not their teaching. At the end of the retreat you are invited to practice dana (= make a donation) to the teachers for their teaching.

We hope to see many of you there!
