Preferring simplicity and freedom,
Practicing not-doing,
Everything will fall into place.

Lao Tzu

A retreat is a time-out, a break from everyday routine, with space for reflection, coming to senses and meditation. It is a time for oneself, without expectations, without duties, without daily chores, and without outer distractions. Simply being in the here and now, in sitting, walking or eating.

Together with other like-minded people and with guidance of a experienced teacher the participants can experience what it means to practice non-doing for a couple of days. We will meditated, be silent, experience nature, say hello to our monkey-mind that is leaping from thought to thought, we will reflect and discover together how to give your body and your mind a break from everyday life.
