On Dana – Generosity

The practice of Dana – Donation and Generosity 
Dana is one of the deepest expression of the mutual dependence between us all.  Dana supports the cultivation of the beautiful and transormative quality of generosity. In that way Dana also enable everyone to join and receive teaching  regardless of their financial situation and to benefit from the fruits of the practice.  Teachers share their time, energy and experience and offer teaching on a Dana basis in accordance with ancient Buddhist tradition. The teaching has been handed over from teacher to student for in that way for thousand of years. At the end of the retreat, people are invited to practice Dana by making monetary offerings for the teachings and support the teachers to continue their offering in that way. Dana is not a payment for goods or services rendered; This is an opportunity to participate in the ancient tradition of total reciprocity between teachers and students and to give from the heart to that which we wish to support.  Your generosity not only gives support to the teachers, but also the Sangha, the larger Dharma community, and your own practice

   Going Deep Into Freedom: A Vipassana and Yoga Retreat

Germany, at Paunehoff  – A beautiful Buddhist center near Düsseldorf  

This retreat is a unique opportunity that weaves together the classical insight Vipassana retreat with the practices of Ashtanga Yoga in the tradition of Patanjali and Sri K. Pattabhi Jois.

We will deepen into the ancient and radical teachings of the Buddha for the liberation of the heart and mind, side by side with transformative Yoga practices.

Being in direct contact with life beyond ideas reveals depth and aliveness that can open us to the ease of being, clarity, energy, and wisdom that flourish in the body, the heart and the mind.

The retreat includes comprehensive instructions in Vipassana (Insight) and mindfulness meditation including guidance in sitting, walking, standing and reclining posture. Additionally there will be enquiries, a daily talk, and opportunities for one-to-one meetings with the teachers. This will intertwine with daily sessions of Yoga, morning Mysore-style (guided self-practice and led) and evening sessions of Yoga Nidra.
