Shambhala Stockholms Summer Retreat

 

Compassion and wisdom with yourself and the world

With Barbara Märtens

Lindsberg, Falun

14 – 21 of July

 

In the globalised world in which we live, full of famines, natural disasters, wars and blind selfishness, a compassionate and wise willingness to do everything that serves the overall situation is an important guarantee for living together in freedom, mutual respect and social prosperity.

Within the Buddhist tradition mindfulness meditation and contemplative practices like the Four Immeasurables—the cultivation of loving-kindness, compassion, empathetic joy, and equanimity— offer  a  simple yet potent suite of practices,  that help us to open  and empower our hearts,  counter the distortions in our relationships to ourselves, and deepen our relationships to others.

 

Barbara Märtens has been a Shambhala and Buddhist practitioner for more than 40 years. Being a senior teacher within the Shambhala Community for many years , she is also  the director of faculty for Karuna Training Europe, an organization for contemplative psychology, health and art.  Barbara  has grown up children and grandchildren  and lives in Hamburg, Germany.

 

A Weekthun is a week-long meditation retreat which includes meditation instruction, talks, meditation practice, discussion and time to relax,  go for walks, enjoy the sauna, the lake and nature around Lindsberg. During the weekthun we will also offer individual meetings with an experienced meditation instructor. The program is open to everyone - both beginners as well as experienced meditators who would like to deepen their practice.

Lindsberg is beautifully located in Dalarna, about a three-hour drive north of Stockholm. It is situated near a lovely lake, a ten-minute walk from the venue, by which is an old-style wood-fired sauna. The house is surrounded by forests - perfect for long nature walks. 

For more information about the venue and more photos of the house, rooms, garden and surroundings go to: http://www.lindsberg.org

 

This programme is taught in English.
