Mini-retreat: Live what you know. Be that! | April 2-4

Easter Mini-retreat with Arnaud Maitland

We are very happy to announce that senior teacher Arnaud Maitland, who is currently in extended personal retreat, agreed to lead a mini-retreat in the weekend of April 2-4, 2021 (Easter).

“Live what you know. Be that!” *

Every now and then, many of us need a little break, a time to refresh, reenergize and open to an orientation that will do us good.

Exploring Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche’s teachings, we will soak in what is important for each of us to become.

“This is your moment in time,
Giving you knowledge that ultimately
There is a reason for you being here,
for your undertaking this journey.
You have a purpose!
And your purpose may be up to you.”
– Tarthang Tulku in Kum Nye Dancing

Mixing with Arnaud’s experience of being on extended personal retreat, we will explore living what we know.

The following topics will be included:

  • Curbing stress and furthering what is good.
  • Is it possible to live without inner conflict?
  • How to get in contact with what is authentic in you?
  • The way to freedom is to develop a new way of understanding.
  • Releasing energy, and opening senses and perception.
  • Non-attachment? Isolation? Surrender? To what?
  • Developing meditation: being the point of present-ness.
  • The Padmasambhava principle.
  • Your purpose may be up to you!

* Tarthang Tulku in Challenging Journey, p 215

The retreat will be in English.
