Relaxed restart: a different kind of New Year's celebration
14th Winter Retreat for young adults from all over the world
Especially towards the end of the year, many people sense their past struggles and yearn for a time out in order to pay more attention to oneself and others.
Finding rest. Shaking off stress and re-discovering oneself. Meditating together, as well as celebrating: The Winter Retreat is a special experience, inspiring up to hundred people from all over the world each year.
Mindfulness meditation at the Winter Retreat
Mindfulness meditation means quiet resting, HERE and NOW, and becoming aware of emerging thoughts and feelings without judging or holding on to them. Mindfulness meditation has a positive effect on body, mind and psyche – as proven by a wide range of scientific studies. Furthermore, regular practice of mindfulness can foster the development of emotional intelligence, a key skill/capacity both for your professional and private life.
The Winter Retreat is a unique opportunity to learn and practise mindfulness meditation.
Many people from diverse cultures and (non-)religious backgrounds meet in the inspiring ambience to spend an intensive, fulfilling time together.
Completely at ease: relaxing, managing stress, meditating – and having fun.
Besides varied workshops and talks on daily life themes and mindfulness, this meditation retreat also offers the opportunity to get to know young people from different countries, and to cook, celebrate, and make music together. Evenings in a relaxing athmosphere, celebrating a glittering new year’s party or meditating at midnight. Beyond religious commitments, it’s about meditation for young people; community, a zest for life/joie de vivre, and mutual exchange with others take centre stage during the retreat.
The WINTER RETREAT is a precious opportunity for young people to learn and practise traditional meditation. There are daily talks, sharings and workshops about everyday life and how to combine that with mindfulness and meditation. The seminar provides the possibility to get to know peers from different nations, to cook, party and make music together. Watch our video or read the report of a participant (William D.).
