Beginner’s Mind, three-day retreat

Beginner’s Mind

In the gentle atmosphere of a three-day retreat, we cultivate the beginner’s mind or freshness, continuously returning to the present moment. We relax the body and mind through meditation on breath in stillness and mindfulness of the body in movement. The retreat is open to anyone who has attended a meditation course and a one-day retreat.

The conduct during the retreat is guided by four simple rules – silence, punctuality, tidiness, and attentiveness. The rule of silence also applies to the use of mobile phones and smart devices. The day begins at 6 a.m. and includes periods of sitting meditation, yoga practice, mindful work, lectures, and the opportunity to speak with the teacher. Rest time is at 9:30 p.m. We expect all participants to follow the daily schedule.

We look forward to your arrival on the starting day, Thursday, by 4:30 p.m. We conclude on Sunday around 4 p.m.

Retreat is held in-person at the Hartovski Vrh Retreat Center.
