27. August - 1. September 2019
with zen master
Niklaus Brantschen SJ
True RELAXATION starts when we get to completely leave behind our work, our everyday activities. If you don’t know how to REST, how to do nothing, you will not be capable of a proper meditation practice or to efficiently work either.
In our achievement-oriented and overstressed world the Posticum Centre is inviting us to a different kind of retreat at the end of the summer: HOLIDAYS with Niklaus Brantschen, jesuit father and zen master, who this time will not put emphasis on teaching us how to meditate but on how to REST, PLAY and RECHARGE ourselves. We’ll reverse the order: we will start with the relaxation and not with the meditation.
Escursion and swimming, morning qi-gong and jogging, sightseeing and concert, family programmes and freeflow discussions, group mealtimes, teatimes and some wine, movies and boardgames – AND meditation.
We will have the chance to take a CLOSE LOOK into the master’s mind and way of life and thus we might get a deeper experience and understanding of how it is when spirituality and meditation infuses & changes our everyday lives. We will re-learn to JUST BE, for the sake of being – together with the master.
If your spouse or partner is new to the world of meditation or you’d like your kids to have an experience of being in the aura of a genuine master in REAL LIFELIKE SITUATIONS, this camp will be the perfect opportunity for you to take that first step.
We invite families, couples and singles alike. Expect a multilanguaged and colorful camp community.
This camp is the first of a programme-series called TOGETHER WITH MASTERS designed by and in the Posticum Centre, Oradea.
