Stockholm Shambhala Meditation Group
16 – 25 of July
The retreat includes meditation, meditation instruction, talks, discussion and individual meditation meetings with an experienced meditation instructor, plus time to relax, go for walks, enjoy the sauna, the lake and the nature.
The programme is open to everyone, no experience needed. Great for beginners – as well as experienced meditators who would like to deepen their practice.
Teacher: We have invited Jane Hope from London to come and teach the program, if everything is working out with the Covid-19 situation.
The Manor house Follökna is located in the heart of Sörmland on Lake Nedingen. One and a half hour drive south of Stockholm. The location is quiet and secluded. The manor house dates back to the Middle Ages and was once owned by Charles IX's spouse Queen Kristina. Current buildings were erected during the 1840s.
Just below the house there's a place for swimming as well as a sauna. A bridge leads over to the manor's own island where it is next to untouched nature, where you can roam the forest or enjoy the twilight from the barbecue area on the cliffs. If you want to go out on the lake, there are canoes and boats.
Jane Hope was born in the North of England and studied Fine Art. She belonged to an experimental theatre group called the Exploding Galaxy who performed with Pink Floyd and various other 60’s bands and was employed for 15 years as a Bereavement Counsellor, working with parents whose baby had died. She managed to combine her work life with writing books and has three published books, including “The Beginners Guide to Buddhism”. She was a founder member of the London Shambhala group which began in her home and has taught extensively in UK, North America and Europe.
Children are welcome. We will arrange for childcare during the retreat. The parents will have a building of their own.
