Open Dharma Meditation Retreats
Open Dharma® has been offering teachings and retreats since 1999 to encourage people from around the world to live an awakened life. Open Dharma retreats encourage an atmosphere of creative stillness where each participant can open and deepen in her or his own way.
Meditation, Deep Rest, Yoga and much more..
The transformative magic on our retreats comes from a combination of elements such as meditation, deep rest, yoga, chi gong, silence, nature, meditative singing, and the Japanese art of harmony called Jin Shin Jyutsu®. Some retreats also integrate work or the arts.
On retreats, teachings come through meditation instructions, Dharma talks, group and private interviews, silence, and in spontaneous moments of exchange. Between retreats, the two Open Dharma
facilitators offer ongoing teachings at
Dharmaloca, Catalonia in Spain.
We draw on life experience, and on the wealth of insights in traditions such as Advaita Vedanta; Christianity; Theravada, Zen, and Tibetan Buddhism; and the mystic hearts of spiritual ancestors from Kabir and Sahajobai to Saints Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross.
