Individual practice was welcome at the house.
Outside of group retreats, it was possible to step back from one's habits and tendencies and from the treadmill, to reflect and gain insights by taking time for a “personal retreat.”
During such a period, you could experiment, heal, practice, read (you had access to the library), research… and benefit from as much or as little guidance as you may request.
Meditative practices were encouraged (previous experience of meditation was recommended, but not strictly necessary since guidance was available if needed).
Informal practice (free) of iaido (Muso Shinden Ryu and Shindo Munen Ryu Tachi Iai) was also possible with Denis.
This opportunity is about to be permanently closed, but is still available for a few weeks. Please contact us to discuss details and participation.
Past retreats, in English, included for example Developing mindfulness in daily life, Stress management and work / life balance, the women-only retreat and Buddhism and society: restraint or engagement?
Past seminars include Daily life is a struggle, but does it really have to be?
All group retreats initially scheduled between August 2017 and January 2018 are now cancelled, as Dharma.house is not able to operate any longer.
