Touching The Wonders Of Life
Retreat with Thich Nhat Hanh and Plum Village Seniors Dharma Teachers
(with or without Thich Nhat Hanh depending on his health) and the monks and nuns of the EIAB and Plum Village
Often we are so absorbed by our thoughts and feelings that we are barely able to perceive what is going on around us. And when we are caught up in negative feelings such as fear, anger and desperation, it seems as though nothing else exists: we become imprisoned by our own thoughts. Most of the time we just want to get rid of these unpleasant thoughts and feelings. However, it is not until we can observe them mindfully, and lovingly accept them, that they will open the way to the inner peace we long for.
Through our practice of mindfulness we create a secure and safe inner space in which we can take refuge. And in this stillness an awareness of the complete uniqueness of life with all its wonders becomes available to us.
Retreat language: English with translation into German.
