A Deep Meditative Retreat in Lyon, France: 13 -14 May 2023
INNER SILENCE PURE AWARENESS & LOVE
« In the light of silence, all problems are dissolved» J.
The source of most of our problems in work, life and relationships is a noisy mind which mechanically lives and reacts from its past baggage. Living with anything that is dead, false and untrue brings great mental and emotional suffering. This retreat is an invitation to uncover and awaken that timeless source of wisdom inside us which can see clearly what is false and non-essential in our living and be free from an unnecessary heavy burden that blocks the natural flow of pure joy, creativity, contentment and love.
We are going to explore existentially the following questions:
o Can we awaken a source of wisdom within, a guide and inner compass to navigate the enormous pressures and challenges of modern society?
o What are the great hidden potentials and powers inside us which can help us to meet life fully?
o How to let go of our false identities and uncover our true essence?
o How to meet our fears, emotional reactions, sorrows, hurts and traumas in a non- reactive way?
o How can we allow inner silence, pure awareness and love flower in our daily life?
o Inspiring live talks and self-inquiry sessions
o Exercises in a one-to-one setting and small group exchanges.
o 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. It will provide the condition for creating, all along our journey together, a meditative state of mind essential for a serious inner enquiry.
o 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.
o One of the main highlights of the retreat is “Meditative & Transformative Self-inquiry.” What we learn here is that a deep self-inquiry is not an intellectual process of discussion or exchange of lot of words where ego-mind is the centre-stage 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.
