Patience is a Mark of Love
Registration until 07 August 2017
Dutch Retreat with the monks and nuns from the EIAB and Plum Village
We are always coming up against our own limitations as well as those of our family members, friends, work colleagues and people in society. We can often become impatient and critical when we come across weaknesses and shortcomings in ourselves and in others.
If we wish to train ourselves to be more patient we need to practise mindfulness. When we are more patient we can learn to see and understand ourselves and others as we and they really are. When we can take a step back from the situation we can recognize our own pain and the suffering of the other and to deal with the situation with understanding and compassion.
Patience helps us to give each other space, which we need in order to discover and to develop our full potential. With the help to practice of patience we can live the life free from judgmental mind and find the ability to forgive.
In this retreat we want to nourish our patience from our heart rather than our intellect so that we can base our relationships on deep insight and understanding in a loving way.
The Dharma Talks and other activities will be in English or Dutch with consecutive translation.
There will be a children’s program in Dutch and teens program in Dutch and English.
