At home in yourself – A Weeklong Silent Insight Meditation Retreat** Led by Christiane Wolf and Viveka Blom Nygren (yoga and assistance)

This retreat meets the requirements for MBSR, MSC, and MMTCP teachers and teachers-in-training.

During times of a lot of external and internal stress we can feel less and less safe and at home within ourselves. The personal and collective stress levels are rising, and it can be hard to find a calm and stable place in everyday life. A week of a silent Insight (or Vipassana) meditation retreat helps us to reset and re-align with what we value most so we can return home with new energy, calm and skills to not only support ourselves but also those around us. We have created a beautiful holding environment in a stunning natural setting in the mountains near Barcelona at Can Vital.

Together we nourish body, heart and mind through the ancient practices of Insight meditation and yoga. Detox the mind by releasing your phone for a week and your to do list, detox your body by daily guided yoga and delicious (mostly) vegan food and come back home to yourself. Re-discover a peaceful heart and mind and the clarity that grows naturally from that place.

Please note that this retreat is held in "noble silence", meaning there is no talking except for small group meetings/sharing and a daily Q&A session. The silence includes not using your phone or any other device or reading books or magazines. This allows the mind to quiet itself in a deep and supportive way.

 

We will nurture the heart and mind with compassionate mindful presence and strengthen our connection with ourselves and each other, with time to enjoy nature, deep rest and practice in this amazing environment.

Our practice includes

  • Alternating periods of sitting meditation with walking meditation in the beautiful surroundings
  • Gentle yoga and body scanning
  • Dharma Lectures 
  • Instruction and personal guidance
  • Small group meetings to support you in the context of a silent retreat

This is what former participants say:

I had a very intense experience of silence, wrapped up in a very soft, caring and professional container. I learnt a lot about my self, and different modalities to regulate myself. I also learnt that we can hold pain with laughs and joy. Every thing was just so… Just so loving and kind. I can’t wait to dive deeper, with Viveka and Christiane. Thank you

It has been transformational experience to spend 6 days and nights in silence under your caring guidance. I felt back home in my body, heart and mind while you were leading us very thoroughly step by step. The daily program was crafted, so that even people with less experience in meditation and mindfulness could immerse and explore the practices with confidence. One of the greatest benefits for me was that I was experiencing everything that until now was just a theoretical knowledge "how to practice" - loving kindness, compassion, self compassion, forgiveness... The location was not only magnificent but contributed perfectly to the purpose of the retreat with it's serenity and beauty, far away from the hectic life. I appreciate all the efforts put into the organisation, logistics and smooth communication from the moment I booked the retreat online until the moment I left for home.   Thank you from the bottom of my heart.It has been transformational experience to spend 6 days and nights in silence under your caring guidance.
