Insight Meditation Retreat
How the Dharma informs all Mindfulness-based Approaches

The Danish Mindfulness Association is honored to welcome for the first time in Denmark Bob Stahl and wife Jan Landry for a 7-day Insight Meditation Retreat.


During the last 37 years Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and other Mindfulness-Based Programs (MBPs) have spread exponentially around the world.  Mindfulness is now being integrated into medicine, health care, education, business, government, and a wide range of other social institutions. This retreat will explore how the teachings of Buddhist Psychology, (Dharma) informs Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and all Mindfulness-Based Approaches.

Who is this Retreat For?

This retreat is suitable for anyone wanting to deepen their mindfulness practice. This retreat will focus on cultivating further understanding of the rationale on how the Dhamma informs all mindfulness-based approaches. This will be especially of interest to those teaching or aspiring to teach mindfulness in healthcare, psychology, education, science, government, or in the business and corporate sectors. Please, note that this retreat is in silence.

About the Retreat

Through the direct practices of the four foundations of mindfulness, you will learn how the essence of these wisdom teachings (Dharma): the four noble truths and the three characteristics of existence intersect and inform all mindfulness-based approaches.

This insight meditation 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 and systematic instructions that are embedded with the spirit of Loving Kindness.  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.

Practical Information

  • Where: Gomde Retreat Center in the beautiful hills of Djursland, Denmark. Address is: Smedehalden 3, Esby. DK-8420 Knebel. Info on how to get there (indsæt link til Information on how to get to Rangjung Yeshe Gomde)
  • Detailed directions for getting to Rangjung Yeshe Gomde


  • Registration fees include the organisation of the retreat, accommodation and vegetarian meals:
  • Single room, total cost, VAT included: 7375,00 Dkr. - FULL - THIS IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE
  • Double room, total cost, VAT included: 6500,00 Dkr.
  • Dormitory (sleeps up to 10 people), total cost, VAT included: 5625,00 Dkr.
  • Use of own tent (campground), total cost, VAT included: 5187,50 Dkr.
  • 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. Bob and Jan 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 teacher in his 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.

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.


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.

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.

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.
