This meditation week will take place in a previously christian monastery in the Provence, near Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. The formal meditations will be done in the monastery chapel.
In this retreat the relationship between the four immeasurables (brahmavihara, i.e. love, compassion, joy and equanimity) and insight into the non-self nature of our heart-mind will be investigated. The direct experience of the empathic nature of the four brahmavihara can lead us to a deep sense of connectedness with all living beings, including ourselves, and it is possible to overcome almost effortlessly everything seperating and dividing. In their final stage of development the brahmavihara are the expression of an awakened heart.
Skilful means used during the course will be calm & insight meditation, Kum-Nye body exercises, Dhamma dialogues, observing the eight precepts and strict noble silence.
