Meditation is a state of the mind free from thoughts, feelings, moods, evaluating, comparing. To be in meditation means being totally aware of the present here and now. And to realize how one moment passes into the following moment. Our life always takes place at the present moment.
Techniques can help us to create inner environment, in which meditation can happen.
Observation – being witness - is the essence of all techniques. Observe your thoughts, feelings, bodily perceptions without judging them; this is how gaps emerge in which meditation happens. Meditation is a blessing - a gift.
During the 4-day meditation camp we experiment mostly with active, dynamic and body focused techniques, that offer plenty of space for movement, emotional expression, breathing, verbal expression and dance, before we actually enter the silence.
Another aspect always is: how can I integrate awareness and meditation into my daily life? How can I remain conscious and relaxed in my everyday activities? How can I train my awareness, watchfulness?
The course itself offers enough time and space for questions and discussion, so that everybody could practice on his own after returning home.
