Wake Up Retreat @ Blue Cliff Monastery

June 19 - June 23

You are invited to join other young adults (ages 18-35 or so) for a time of practice, inclusiveness, and fun. The Wake Up movement was founded by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh as a way for young adults around the world to come together and practice mindfulness in order to take care of themselves, nourish happiness, and contribute to building a healthier and more compassionate society. During this time together we will explore the practices of sitting, walking and eating meditation, while building community through Dharma sharing and simply being together.

Wake Up Interreligious Retreat @ EIAB

September 20 - September 27

At first glance, the beliefs of different religions seem to be very different. It may give the impression that complete opposites collide. Religious and cultural peculiarities may obscure what we all share and what we can learn from each other.

In this retreat, we want to get to know representatives and believers from different religious communities. We want to meet with openness, joy and acceptance, learn from each other and practice together. All interested people are welcome to become ambassadors of interreligious and intercultural dialogue.
