 Body-Mind Centering® meets Maitri Space Awareness

Befriending Ourselves and recognizing our Potential on the Journey of being Human

10 Day Retreat

10. – 20. August 2024 - Dechen Chöling - France
together with Barbara Märtens

We live in a time where life on earth is not easy. We are flooded with news and signals of danger, terror, disbalance to a point where the continued existence of our planet and humanity sometimes seems not guaranteed anymore.
When confronted with pain and despair, both on individual but also societal level, we often draw back and contract out of fear and overwhelm. We shrink and isolate within a cocoon of apathy and supposed safety. When this becomes our way of life, we block our natural wisdom qualities, like empathy, love, joy of life, wakeful intelligence and more.
To live in a less constricted way, with a more spacious, open sense of possibility, creativity and connection we can choose another option and learn to open our heart and senses with courage, mindfulness and respect to explore the situation we live in. To our surprise we discover within our body, within our emotions and mental capacities the wisdom necessary to find answers to the burning questions of our modern times.
This program is open for everybody. An introduction to different meditation techniques as well as BMC® and MSAP will be given within the continuation of the program.

• Maitri Space Awareness practice (MSAP) was first developed by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and is based on the principles of the five buddha families of Tibetan Buddhism. Each buddha family emphasizes a particular aspect of energy or pattern within and around us, which can manifest in a sane and wakeful or confused and blocked way. Through colored rooms or glasses and specific body postures the experience of these different energy patterns is intensified, so that we can recognize their ways of manifestation on the level of body, speech/ emotion and mind within us. The emphasis of the practice is on discovering within these raw and colorful energies unconditional friendliness (or maitri) towards oneself. This discovery becomes a basis for living one’s life more fully, skillfully understanding and relating with others, and establishing a dynamic and healthy relationship with one’s work, home and natural environments.

This program will be taught in English, with translation into French. Translation into other languages possible on request.
