“But then you discover the peace… such a beautiful peace, wild and peaceful.”

I would certainly recommend this course!

It was my first retreat.

When you arrive from “active” life, at first it’s difficult to slow down and to be on your own more. You just think “Wow, it’s so quiet! What am I gonna do during 5 days?”

But then you discover the peace… such a beautiful peace, wild and peaceful.

That staff are really nice, Mana is really available and full of kindness.

I have learned about myself and about buddhism.

If I can, I will come back – and I will go on with meditation.

Thank you for everything!

“One of the best things I’ve done in my life”

I think this retreat would be beneficial for anyone who tried it, especially for people I know who live within my culture and society, where I see a lot of emphasis placed on material and gain, and possibly not enough attention given to the spiritual and personal reflection…. And compassion to all beings.

This has been one of the best things I’ve done in my life to assist me in facing an anxiety disorder that I’ve suffered from for a very long time.

“I aim to continue practice”

I would highly recommend a retreat for mindful meditation at Open Mind Centre.

I feel the guided meditations helped me immensely with my sense of self – gave me an initial sense of knowing myself better and to appreciate my body as the fantastic tool that it is, not only physically, but emotionally as well.

Solo meditation – with prior teaching and guidance by Mana – helped me greatly – I feel I can now be happy in my own company.

After meditation, our discussions with Mana were very well directed. Mana has a great skill in helping you grasp concepts and helping you reach desired outcomes, sometimes by helping you find answers to your own questions in your own way. Read more
