Program vår/sommar 2023

Retreat with Stephan Pende outside Höör 2-6/6

During this retreat we will explore Buddhist methods to open your heart and connect with the source of wisdom in you.

Stephan Pende will introduce you to a variety of meditation techniques from the Tibetan Tradition to support the development of Self-Compassion and based on that compassion for others.

These meditations can be used by everyone independent of your belief and background. The emphasis will be on cultivating a kind and open awareness, to discover a way of effortless being without pressure.

When you look deeply into your heart you recognize that the very nature of consciousness itself is a wellspring of loving-kindness.

It is said that the very quality of the deepest level of your mind is that of inexhaustible love, and it is already there. In other words, you don’t need to get it from anybody else: not from a religion, not from a teacher. It is there already, but it does get obscured.

So, if this is a birthright, a capacity you bring to life, then instead of emphasizing how to cultivate this wonderful quality of mind, you can shift your mindset to ask how to stop doing what you are doing to obscure it.

Stephan Pende Wormland has studied and practiced meditation in multiple traditions for over 30 years. He was a monk in the Tibetan tradition for 11 years.

At Hallaskog, the participants will be accommodated in multi-bed rooms or double rooms. There is a large assembly hall for teaching and meditation, showers and toilets, a kitchen and dining area. The retreat place is located in a beautiful beech forest by Dagstorpsjön, 9 km north of Höör. In the schedule there will be space for personal time.

The 18th century Tibetan mystic Jigmé Lingpa wrote many poems about the practice of Dzogchen, one of the great wisdom traditions of Tibetan Buddhism. One such poem is "Revelations of Ever-present Good" from his Great Vastness Heart Dropcycle.

In "A Trackless Path" Ken McLeod presents a fluid contemporary translation of this poem, accompanied by a deeply moving and insightful commentary. The combination makes Jigmé Lingpa’s mystical poem relevant and accessible to today’s seeker. We will explore the text based on Ken McLeod’s book in this 3-month course.

Stephan Wormland, MA in clinical psychology, is trained in Gestalt therapy. He has studied and practiced meditation in multiple Buddhist traditions for over 35 years and spent 5 years in meditation retreats.
