Dathüns and Weekthüns


Dathüns and weekthüns are in-depth retreats and a powerful introduction to and deepening of mindfulness-awareness meditation. They are offered multiple times throughout the year as one-week, two-week or month-long group retreats.

During these programs, the practice of mindfulness goes beyond sitting on a mediation cushion; every aspect of daily life becomes part of the mindful discipline of rediscovering the present moment and our own hearts and minds.

Each day consists of a full schedule of sitting and walking meditation, Buddhist chants, talks, contemplative meals and a short work session. Silence and functional speech are observed.  The simplicity of the daily routine provides a welcome alternative to a world of speed and multi-tasking and, bit by bit, we become friends with the present moment.
