What is a Weekend Retreat?

It is a period where you have the opportunity to stay and practice Mindfulness in Healing Spring Monastery. This simple program will allow you to slow down, rest, and be nourished by peace and togetherness. You will study and deepen your meditation together with monastic community and other lay practitioners. We’ll also  practice together with practitioners who will come for day of Mindfulness on Sunday.

Wonderful. Very strengthening for my practice and mental health.

Contribution 

The contribution of this retreat will be around 60€ – 110 € per night depending on the accommodations. Your reservation will be officially confirmed only if you pay your contribution.

All the Contribution is a donation that will support our service in sustaining the monastic communities, maintaining the building of the monastery, and allow us to support participants who have financial difficulty to join the retreat. 

We don’t want that financial situation to become an obstacle for someone to practice. There will be no 100% scholarship but we will give a reduction accordingly. Please write to us if you really need help (after you have made your reservation). Contact us here

(Note: All of our programs embrace the nature of impermanence, if the condition is not sufficient the elements of the retreat may be adjusted, be rescheduled or be canceled)
