In this 5-day retreat our daily routine will be less rigorous and more flexible to allow more time for explanations and instructions. We practice the basic methods of relaxation and concentration in order to harmonize body and mind. The methods of "Silent Illumination" and "huatou" will be explained.
The retreat is held in silence. The daily routine consists of a number of 30 or 40 minutes meditation periods, including walking meditation, Yoga exercises and working meditation. Dharma lectures will be given daily and participants will have the opportunity for personal interviews with the teacher. The retreat will be conducted in German, interviews with the teacher can be held in English.
