Being among people

Weekend retreat on meditation, living together and politics - with Wibo Koole

At the beginning of autumn, we take a weekend to relax and reflect. Just as the unfocused summer energy has transitioned into the focused activities of work and living together. In this weekend, we explore what meditation means for living together. Is meditation also political?

The Breath as Guide

Weekend retreat - with Wibo Koole

Inward and outward facing

Weekend retreat on the basics of meditation - with Wibo Koole

With Feeling Towards Liberation

Weekend retreat on emotions and ethics - with Wibo Koole

Feelings and emotions abound in our daily lives. And we meditate to learn to deal better with our emotions. But is that really the case? What are emotions anyway? Are they just feelings or are they ethical guideposts?
