Insight Meditation Retreat
Embodying the Heart of Kindness and Presence: An Insight Meditation and Yoga Retreat in silence

Overview
Meditation and Yoga are natural partners in the spiritual life. Drawing on the Buddha’s teachings of mindfulness and awakening and the yoga teachings of Patanjali this retreat will combine the practices of Hatha Yoga and Insight Meditation.
The Buddha's teachings are founded upon our innate potential to discover inner peace and freedom. The practice of Insight Meditation will be offered as an invitation to relax into the immediacy of direct experience and explore the deepening of spiritual understanding. As we learn to abide in the wide-open heart of awakened presence, our natural wisdom and kind-heartedness emerges.
The yoga is offered as a spiritual path rather than as an exercise system. The movements are simple and done slowly in tune with the rhythm of our breath. Through the practice of meditative awareness, the body becomes a gateway to inner peace and understanding, enabling us to open into an intimate connection with life.

Who is this retreat for?
This retreat is suitable for anyone wanting to deepen their mindfulness and yoga practice. This retreat will focus on cultivating a further understanding of abiding in the heart of awakened presence and of the body in meditative yoga. This will be especially of interest to those teaching or aspiring to teach in healthcare, psychology, education, science, government, or in the business and corporate sectors. Please, note that this retreat is in silence.

About the retreat
This Insight Meditation and yoga retreat will offer periods of sitting and walking meditation, mindful yoga as well as group and individual practice discussions. The teachers will also offer daily talks. These teachings and practices will emphasize quieting the mind, opening the heart, and developing clarity and depth of practice. Please notice that the teaching will be in English. Difficult phrases or words will be translated as needed.

Fee

  • Registration fees include the organisation of the retreat, accommodation and vegetarian meals:
  • Single room, total cost, VAT included: 8200,00 Dkr.
  • Double room, total cost, VAT included: 7500,00 Dkr.
  • Dormitory or use of own tent (campground, total cost, VAT included): 6800,00 Dkr.
  • Early Bird price reduction (before January 1st, 2018): 500,00 Dkr.
  • Price reduction for members of the Mindfulness Association: 500,00 Dkr.
    (It is only possible to get a total of 500 Dkr in price reduction)
  • Dana:The registration fee is only for the organization and does not include the fee for the teacher, so we ask for a “Dana” for the teacher. Dana (pronounced “dah-na”) is a Pali word meaning generosity. This practice dates back to the ancient times and comes from the conviction that the teachings may be outweighed by any material values and that they should be accessible to all and be given freely, since they are considered priceless. Therefore, the teachers offer their work for free. Yanai and Helen offer the teachings in this perspective. However, to allow their livelihood and their other teaching activities, they have to rely on voluntary donations at the end of the course. There will be an opportunity for each participant to contribute at the end of the retreat and to donate something to help the teachers in their work. Everyone is asked to give as much and appropriate as it is possible. You can also easily rely on what such seminars usually cost, and if this helps, we can give you some idea of a usual cost.

Mindfulness i skolen

IMG 2894

Stort tillykke med projekt "Mindfulness i skolen" , et stort projekt i Mindfulnessforeningen er nu efter 2 års intens arbejde og forskning sendt ud i verden til brug i alle folkeskoler, friskolen og efterskoler og dybest set til alle.
Tak til alle jer der kom i aftes på VIAÅrhus.
Et fantastisk og gratis Mindfulness materiale til børn og unge ligger nu takket være midler fra undervisningsministeriet tilgængeligt for alle. Klik på Materialeplatformen /via billederne i dette opslag Materialet er udviklet og designet af Rikke Braen Lauritzen og lavet på en interaktiv digital platfom med både en hjemmeside og en app, og grundstammen i curriculum er MBSR Mindfulness Baseret Stressreduktion som vi kender det, men i høj grad tilpasset til danske folkeskoler med dansk kultur og tradition.
Alle har nu mulighed for at logge sig ind påmaterialeplatformen EMU og få adgang til hele materialet.
Vi fik her i aften en lille smagsprøve og det viser hvor grundigt hele materialet fremstår og projektlederen Rikke Braen Lauritzen anbefaler især at underviseren følger de 16 lektioner i den rækkefølge det er lavet, og at du som underviser som minimun selv praktiserer mindfulness, eller har taget et 8 ugers MBSR mindfulness træning. Held og lykke med MIndfulness i Skolen.
Som formand for Mindfulnessforeningen er jeg meget stolt og rørt på MBSR Danmarks vegne, stolt over at vi gennem støtten til dette projekt har bidraget til så smukt et arbejde, og håber at mange vil dele linkene ud i jeres netværk, til glæde for elever og lærere og andre der arbejder med børn og unge og ønsker Mindfulness i skolen held og lykke med fremtidige projekter.

August 14-23 2017: 9-day Silent Retreat with Melissa Myozen Blacker, Roshi and David Dae An Rynick, Roshi

"Meeting Suffering and Joy with Awareness"

A Nine-Day Silent Retreat with Melissa Myozen Blacker, Roshi and David Dae An Rynick, Roshi.

The retreat starts on Monday, August 14th at 7 pm and ends on Wednesday, August 23rd at 12:15 pm.

The retreat will be held in English. Participants with and without prior retreats are very welcome to join.

Personal meditation practice is an essential foundation for anyone who works with mindfulness-based interventions.
This retreat is an opportunity to refresh and deepen your personal meditation practice. Most of the retreat will be spent engaged in silent sitting and walking practice. The retreat leaders will offer daily talks and individual meetings as well as facilitate a group inquiry process. Towards the end of the retreat there will be periods of guided interpersonal inquiry and dialogue to explore the connection between personal practice and teaching mindfulness.

Our attention during this retreat will be on the possibility of meeting the suffering and joy that naturally arise in our own body, mind and heart with open and compassionate awareness. Developing the capacity to encounter these inner states with equanimity and curiosity creates a foundation for meeting the experiences of our students and clients in our offering of mindfulness-based interventions, in both individual and group settings.

The Teachers
Melissa and David bring their experience in both mindfulness-based interventions and the Zen tradition to this retreat. Their commitment to waking up to our lives, their compassionate stance as teachers and their sense of humor create an atmosphere of deep practice that is essential for encountering the true nature of the heart-mind.

Nyhedsbrev 2016

Elana Rosenbaum

At starte på et nyt år er Mindfulness, det hele er nyt, og vi er nysgerrige……

Når vi stopper op kommer der helt naturligt minder fra det vi lige har forladt. Nyhedsbrevet er en lille opsamling over 2015 hvor vi har taget nye skridt ud i verden i form af etablering af etiske retningelinier og etik udvalg og arbejdsgruppe vedr kontakt til sundhedsstyrelsen og et undersøgelsesudvalg med henblik på en udvidelse I foreningen. Vi er klar til 2016 hvor vi allerde nu kan se, at der tales meget om stress og behandling af stress.

mff-logo

Gennem 3 år har vi langsomt og stabilt, som en lang bodyscanning, del for del med opmærksomhed og nænsomhed, opbygget et solidt fundament for vores forening, for vores mange medlemmer; en flot lærerliste med pt. MBSR 23 lærere på landsplan; facebook hvor mange finder spændende nyt om mindfulness; et godt og udviklende venskab blandt medlemmerne; og nu også vores første project, Mindfulness I skolen, bevilliget af undervisningsministeriet.

Dansk Etiske Retningslinjer for MBSR-lærere

Det er med glæde og faglig stolthed at foreningen nu har offentliggjort de Etiske Retningslinjer, som MBSR-lærere under foreningen arbejder under. Hjælp os med at synliggøre de etiske retningslinjer ved at linke til dem. Jo flere der kender til dem, jo stærkere står vi som forening. TAK.

Etiske retningslinjer for MBSR-lærere under Mindfulnessforeningen Danmark. (Udarbejdet 2015 *).
Afsnit A: formål og brugervenlig oversigt

Etik skal langt hen ad vejen gerne være integreret i MBSR-læreren, så der undervises og interveneres ud fra et blødt og omsorgsfuldt hjerte, med den hensigt at være til gavn for deltageren. MBSR-læreren har i den forbindelse et ansvar for sit eget sinds tilstand i mødet med deltageren, så denne er i gode, professionelle hænder.
