Join us at the start of the new year at the EAMBA retreat, with colleagues from different European countries. This silent mindfulness retreat offers an opportunity to meditate together, and to network and exchange on the closing day, building a community of mindfulness teachers and a new, secular tradition of mindfulness retreats.
When we practise mindfulness, we are practising skilful relationship with our experience, ourselves, each other and the world around us. Even in difficult and challenging circumstances, we can discover a way of participating in experience that honours our aliveness and alleviates suffering. There is no better support for this than the company of sincere and wise friends.
This type of friendship, or keeping company with what is good and beautiful, was once described by the Buddha as the very essence of spiritual life. Beginning a new year together as a mindfulness community we can celebrate our shared aspirations and support one another in the context of silent retreat. Building on familiar practices, we will look at what helps and hinders us in being in touch with our own aliveness and continue our journey of waking up together.
This retreat welcomes mindfulnessteachers and those in training.
