About This Event

“Awakening the Timeless Source of Wisdom” Retreat Series
Unconditional Love & Compassion
A Deep meditative Retreat in Beaumont-la-Ferrière, France
(With French-English translations)

What is love? How can we discover a quality of deep love when our minds and relationships are dominated by fears, suffering, envy, guilt, mistrust and conflicts? Are we mistaking constant pursuit of pleasure and comfort for love and happiness? Do we feel a sense of discontentment, alienation and void? How to face our inner vulnerability, emotional turmoil and pain with a quiet mind and heart? How to meet oneself with compassion? What does self-love mean? Are we all the time searching for love outwardly? Can we ever discover it without deeply understanding oneself? Is there a quality of love beyond thought and ego? What is beauty and innocence? How love is connected with self-observation, awareness and awakening of inner wisdom? What is the significance of inner freedom from the past baggage? Is pure love and compassion the answer to most of our problems? This retreat offers an open and gentle space to explore all such fundamental questions of our life and relationships.

This retreat offers a restful break, a pause for the mind, body and heart that is essential as a foundation for deep learning and transformation. The intention is not to fill our minds with intellectual knowledge but to awaken the profound source of being within, so that we get inspired to live our everyday life from the wellspring of inner stillness. The program includes: inspiring live talks,
ONE OF THE MAIN HIGHLIGHTS OF THE RETREAT IS “MEDITATIVE DIALOGUE AND SELF-INQUIRY.” What we learn here is that a deep dialogue is not an intellectual process of discussion or exchange of lot of words but it can be a compassionate meditative process of self-discovery where words carry the quality of silence and affection as they arise not from the noise of the ego-mind but from a deeper space of wonder and love. The retreat offers a safe, serious, and caring space to discover ourselves, meet our deep essence and look at our whole life in a fresh, creative way, whether we are a seeker, a mindfulness practitioner, a coach, a therapist, an artist, a teacher, a professional from any field, a leader or simply a student of life.
