There will be a flow of sitting and walking meditation throughout the silent Retreat. Apart from interviews and discussions with the teachers the whole retreat is held in complete silence.


In the context of mindfulness practises the Yoga lectures  will be guided and performed in a calm and relaxed way. People who are familiar to practise their own individual physical exercises (thai chi for example) may do so.


The retreat is for meditators (both beginners and experienced) who are interested and willing to fully commit to the retreat format and the daily schedule.
Because of the conditions of the ten days Retreat we are sorry to discourage people to come to the Meditation Center later on than 6th of March.


In respect of the tradition of the Theravada principle the teachers of this Retreat offer their work free of charge. Dana/Donations are given of one`s own free will.
