It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in a meditation retreat with Dónal Creedon which will take place in Pustelnik (80km from Wroclaw, Poland) from 20th till 26th of July 2020.
Dónal Creedon studied and practiced with Buddhist masters of the Kagyu practice lineage in Europe as well as in India and Nepal. This involved many years of intense retreat. He also spent a number of years at the Krishnamurti Centre in Varanasi as resident Buddhist scholar. Thus the radical inquiry of Krishnamurti informs his approach. He is currently involved in leading retreats in a number of countries.
The subject of the retreat is “The problem of fear and the road to the Heart”
‘Everyday is a journey and the journey itself is home’.
Our retreat aim to provide a friendly space in which, with the help of Buddhist teaching, we can explore the contents of our lives. To see if we can live sanely and gracefully with presence and sense of beauty in a world gone mad. To do this we need to look into the shadowlands of hope and fear. Particularly we know that fear is one of the greatest problems in life. To understand fear and it’s networks we need to go to the source.
The source lies in fathomless well of mind and the tributaries of thought. It is ‘thought’ that shapes our experience and perception for good or ill. We will use the arts of listening, inquiry and meditation as our means. This is the royal way to the depths of the heart which as the great Sufi Rumi said .’….unrolls to eternity’.
My hope is that the retreat will help bring about a qualitative change in our lives.
The daily program will consist of teachings, sitting and walking meditation as well as dialogue.
It is best if each person should be committed to the full retreat program and leave personal demands and agendas aside.
20 – 26.07.2020
