Workshops, weekends and retreats

Online Vipassana weekend 5-9 January, 2022. Four days.
Unwinding towards sustainable resilience
Directed by Henk Barendregt, Mirjam Hartkamp, and Antonino Raffone.
Language: English and Italian
Period: January 5-9, 2022 (Wednesday — Sunday).

TWIM retreat in the Netherlands, 2022, directed by Delson Armstrong.
Language: English (only).
February 11-20, 2022. Place and price to be announced (November 2021).
Price level will be higher than next retreat.
A Tranquil Wisdom Insight Meditation (TWIM) retreat is based on Lovingkindness (Metta) as meditation object (instead of the breathing in other retreats announced here). The advantage is that one abides in pleasant or equanimous mind-states so that experiencing the three Fundamental Characteristics of Existence (non-permanence, suffering, non-self) becomes more light. Another difference with the retreats in the style of Mahasi Sayadaw is that purification works through release towards relaxation, as part of the 6R (Recognize, Release, Relax, Resmile, Return, Repeat) of Bhante Vimalaramsi. Registration opens between November 15 and 30. Precise moment to be announced.
Cancelled.
