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.
This retreat is an opportunity to develop the practice of mindful living, to bring joy, solidity and freedom into the world. We grow the strength and capacity to create loving relationships, to build a community of supportive friends, to care for the Earth and contribute to positive change in the world. We will be sharing daily meditation, yoga, mindful meals, listening to teachings, hikes in the forest, and discussions, as well as have time to enjoy swimming, music-filled bonfires, starry nights, and canoeing – surrounded by 240 beautiful acres of MorningSun Community.
