Mindfulness and permaculture, advanced level

This retreat is for you who want to go deeper. You have some knowledge and experience of permaculture and some basic training in mindfulness.
Arrival: Sun 5th of August in the late afternoon.
Departure: Fri 10 th of August after closing circle and lunch.


We train our ability to practice loving kindness and compassion through sitting, walking and working meditation.
There are 3 seated meditations and one walking meditation daily of 50 minutes each.
We distinguish between full silence and functional silence.
During the sitting and walking meditations we practise full silence.
During working meditation we practice functional silence.
We do sharing sessions and breaks with free conversation.

Permaculture is a holistic design strategy (briefly told) which ensures that our needs of today are met, and that there is a possibility of a good life to be lived for our descendants.
Each day’s morning module is an opportunity to have conversations about elements of permaculture in practice. Each of us takes small steps all the time to implement the various elements of permaculture in our everyday lives.
Furthermore you’ll have inspiration from social permaculture practice during the week as well as from the designs on Fejø Retreat and The Healing Garden on Fejø.

The meditative work takes place in the Healing Garden and Fejø Retreat as well as through communal cooking, washing up, and cleaning.
