Tilstede – "Present", a weekend with forest bathing and meditation

17. June - 19. June, 2022

Dharma Mountain Group

In everyday life, it easily becomes a habit to have our attention on the outside and to constantly be distracted. We need some help to slow down, to get back to ourselves and find the peace and joy of just being!

During this weekend you will experience forest baths, learn simple meditation techniques like Vipassana meditation, and exercises to become more present. You will receive guidance and support to open up to natural silence.

Our experienced and qualified instructors provide a framework where you can forget about time and all doing and just enjoy and be yourself.

Become familiar with silence
A restart means starting something new – and letting go something old. It means that we meet ourselves in new ways, which can also be challenging and not always easy. It can take some time to get used to the new. You will receive support to meet this during the weekend.

After Lao Tzu

Thirty spokes share the hub of a wheel;
yet it is its center that makes it useful.
You can mould clay
into a vessel;
yet, it is its emptiness
that makes it useful.
Cut doors and windows
from the walls of a house;
but the ultimate
use of the house
will depend on that part
where nothing exists.
something is shaped into what is;
but its usefulness
comes from what is not.

Lao Tzu, Tao te Ching
