Non-residential: €300 Residential: €400 Type of Programme: Silent 5 Day Meditation Retreat
In the silence and simplicity of this retreat, we will practise mindfulness [vipassana, insight meditation] and heartfulness [various compassion practices], so that we will see the magic and mysteries of the mind and hear the whisperings of the heart. There will also be plenty of time for rest, going for walks in the beautiful grounds of Emmaus, and individual practice. There will also be time for reflecting, together or in private talks with Marjó, on how the practice is going. A silent retreat is an ideal opportunity to see where we judge and to have compassion for that; and to see where there is joy and to find ways to share that. And we get a taste of the equanimity and contentment that arise when we realise that we are already completely and fully enough as we are.
