Choose your workshop

On three afternoons during the World Retreat, you can choose between five different exciting and entertaining workshops. The workshops come in three different versions: talks, games and body practices. While most of the talks focus on scientific, cultural or psychological aspects of meditation, two of them are concerned with the history and art of the country we are in: Spain. The games encourage a playful attitude towards the exploration of the self, while the body practices use breath and movements as channels of self-expression.

Every day there is time for walking and talking in the forests, grasslands and mountains nearby.
