Days of Mindfulness




Day of Mindfulness
„Gratitude in the Heart“

Saturday, 16.th February 2019
9:30 - 16:30

Everyone of us will feel grateful when he or she receives something that is freely given and that brings him or her joy. This gratitude is arising in us in such a moment in a very natural way. But what we often don’t see is that every single moment of our life is freely given to us. We didn’t do anything for that we can live in this moment, and there is nothing expected from us in return. This means that every single moment of our life is a gift, a present! On this Day of Mindfulness we will explore this and other phenomena that bring joy to us and that let gratitude arise in our hearts.



Day of Mindfulness

Reconciliation
– the Practice of „Touching the Earth“

Saturday, 16th March 2019
9:30 - 16:30

Everyone of us knows the feeling when our heart is longing for reconciliation. And the simple word “Sorry” is often not enough to solve the situation. Because the wounds are deeper than the words can reach, and in the relationship with a beloved person (or with ourselves) is often remaining a tension, even though we believed to have reconciled with each other. True reconciliation is truly an art and it often also needs a lot of time. In the buddhist teaching there is a method that can support us in this process, the so called “Touching the Earth”. In this practice, the relationship to our ancestors is especially important. Our ancestors can strengthen us like the roots strengthen a tree. When we are deeply rooted in our life, many things will be easier for us, also the reconciliation after a conflict. At the same time, we build a connection to the earth which is also supporting our practice. The method mainly aims  for the reconciliation within our own hearts. When we are reconciled here, then the reconciliation outside, for example in a conversation with the other person, is not difficult for us anymore.

In Contact with Mother Earth
– One Day in Nature

Saturday, 4th May 2019
9:30 - 16:30

We will spend one full day exploring the nature around our center and around Pechhütte. We will do some specific exercises that will help us to really get in contact with nature and to realize that we are connected with Mother Earth – she is carrying our lives in her hands. But Mother Earth can also suffer, and therefore we should learn to take care of her and to send our peaceful energy to her.



Day of Mindfulness
„Who Am I?“

Saturday, 2nd November 2019
9:30 - 16:30

In this seminar we have the opportunity to look deeply into ourselves. Many of us are longing to return to a peaceful place that we all know intuitively: Our true Self. But we lost the connection to that place, we can’t find the map anymore that will show us the path to our true home. The simplest possibility to find back this path is to live in the here and now. Because our true Self is always and exclusively dwelling in the present moment. In this way we can together explore our own interior and walk on the path leading to our true Self



Day of Mindfulness
„Buddha and Jesus“

Saturday, 30st November 2019
9:30 - 16:30

One day before the first day of Advent, we want to direct our view beyond the borders of our buddhist background and dedicate ourselves to the question how the Awakened Ones in other religious and spiritual traditions are showing us the way in our lives. We will focus especially on Christianity and the teachings of Jesus, as these teachings are familiar more or less to all of us due to our cultural background in the Western World. We will discover parallels between the Buddhist and the Christian teachings and we will explore for ourselves how both teachings can support us in our daily lives.

All events are donation-based.

On Days of Mindfulness we kindly ask you to bring a small contribution for our lunch-buffet.
