5 days Silent Meditation Retreat in Barcelona

5 days Silent Meditation Retreat in Barcelona

Reconnect with your being: the Power of Silence

A transformative few days

The purpose is not to develop a belief system, but rather to serve as a guide to see clearly the nature of mind.

Vipassana was discovered by the Buddha and is a path that leads the meditator to gradually go

free oneself from the influence of internal impurities until reaching Liberation.

One of the fundamental principles of Buddhism is that joy and pain, happiness and suffering depend on the mind creating the reality that one experiences.

The world in which we move is the common result of the acts we carry out individually and collectively.

Since all aspects of our lives are permeated with suffering,

we must do something that helps us in our daily life.

In this 5-day Vipassana retreat, sitting meditations of 45 minutes each session are alternated with walking meditations, as well as developing a warm heart through the teachings of Metta Bhavana.

It is open to people who want to find peace and develop a kind heart.

The only thing we can do in the face of such discomfort is to improve our adaptability to the circumstances that are presented to us.

The focus of this retreat is to gain a deep experience of this state that calms distractions and brings us happiness.

⭐Objectives - Integrative resources of the retreat⭐

✅ Vipassana Meditation

✅ Full attention and mental calm.

✅ Observe, accept, recognize inner emotions.

✅ Encourage the expression of emotions proactively through Metta Bhavana (universal brotherly love)

✅ Improve the relationship we have with ourselves and with life

✅ Understanding: integration of how our reactivity generates effects that take us away from peace

✅ Gratitude and kindness (Truth in thought, beauty in heart, kindness in action).

Silence is maintained throughout the retreat to facilitate mental calm including mindful eating meals.

    I walk with heart

    Mother of a son. I live slowly, I cultivate my own organic garden and the chickens give us fresh eggs every day. I do not buy in any supermarket or in any global store, supporting small local businesses, a business without plastics, avoiding generating waste. I love to heat myself and cook with firewood, helping in this way in the electric consumption. I love living like this! My trajectory in the study and practice of yoga and Buddhist meditation dates back to the year 1,997 when the books of Theos Bernard and Sivananda fell into my hands, where the fascination for yoga filled my heart, thus discovering my vocation. During these years I have dedicated part of my life to human development, teaching classical yoga and Buddhist meditation as a means of connecting with the potential of each one, expanding the vision. Since then I have transmitted the teaching with honesty and rigor ensuring authentic yoga without interruption. My purpose is to provide people with the practical theoretical experience of yoga and meditation with the aim of being able to improve the relationship with oneself and in this way with others in relation to life without losing the essence of ancient teaching that has come to our days. - Trained with Clara Devi Llum as Master of Kuan Yin Reiki - Training Sadhana Barcelona with Arjuna, - 2006-2010 - Trained in Experiential Anatomy and Body Awareness with Ayako Sushi, great connoisseur of body movement 2006-2009 - Training of Tibetan Yoga of the Heart with Marta Moll and Isidro Gordi from 2007-2014 - Study and practice in Tibetan Buddhism from 2007 to 2014 with the Lay School of Buddhism.
