The Mandala Principle with Chöden (Sean McGovern)
Monday 20. May 2019, 6 pm – Saturday 25. May 2019, pm; 5 days
Course language: English , Translation to: Deutsch
In this retreat practical exercises are given on mindfulness, self-compassion and insight, which form the basis for our compassionate self, a core of Compassion Focussed Therapy, to inhabit and to find the center of our personal mandala. We explore how mindfulness and compassion relate to our inner world and compassion to change our way of life. Through this we learn to hold and transform our own struggles and conflicts with compassion and wisdom. This, in turn, strengthens us, the difficulties of others to be able to hold. We are getting more and more into the center of our personal mandala. The principle of the Mandala is derived from Tantric Buddhism and is a model with which we can get along in our inner world.
When we set up in the center, we find a place of peace and quiet integration and we begin to appreciate the preciousness and richness of our various shares recognize.
Finally, to experience this deeply connects us to the insight of the interconnectedness of all being (interbeing: Thich Nhat Hanh). We also see that when we connect with wisdom and compassion at the center of our being, that part of us has never been damaged – it has always been whole and perfect, despite all the injuries and traumas we have suffered in our lives.
Part of the retreat will be in silence.
