About the Half Day Course

Sometimes it feels as if modern life is so crowded and busy it is easy to feel overwhelmed, stressed and out of control. On this short retreat learn how to create inner space through meditation – a space in which we can find inner peace, calm and relaxation. This inner space then becomes a space we can carry with us all the time, giving us power to choose how we respond to life’s difficulties and ultimately benefiting ourself and others.

By training in meditation, we create an inner space and clarity that enables us to control our mind regardless of the external circumstances.

Suitable for beginners and advanced. Everybody is welcome
