Who am I ?
Silent 5-day retreat for those to want to deepen their practice. You will be guided in practicing mindfulness meditation in sitting and walking, standing and lying down. We'll also use some sound awareness at the beginning of the retreat to help focus the mind. There will be sessions of Metta/Loving Kindness and compassion meditation. There will be check-ins with Eva most days to talk about your practice. If the weather allows it we will go for a silent walk at some point during the week.

5-day autumn retreat 
Opening heart and mind 

The Four Foundations of Mindfulness
We will practice awareness based on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness. We'll do this with compassion and aware of the fragilitly of the heart. Opening and closing, the mind/heart is responding to outer circumstances and to our own thoughts and emotions. Gaining an understanding of the inner processes and their connection to our life brings clarity and can be a base for kinder and wiser living. 
During the first days we will at times use sound awareness to help gather the scattered mind.
This course is suitable for anyone, also for MBSR teachers and those to are training to become an MBSR teacher.
