"Retreats should lead to experiencing imminent joy and enable us to better care for others with our body, speech and mind. To better thrive on increasingly precious time, a stay in one of our already existing enlightened fields is very beneficial. " Lama Ole Nydahl

By means of meditation, we learn to get to know our mind. Retreating for several days or even weeks gives us space to process current feelings or situations. Devoid of bustling activities, tranquility of mind and discernment evolve and may be profoundly experienced. Retreat experience and everyday life experience thus link together due to the Diamondway view. Duration and type of retreat is up to the individual. For less experienced people, open retreats consisting of two to four short meditation sessions a day may be the best option. 

Precondition for retreats in our center is the Buddhist Refuge and regular, longterm visits of one of our Diamondway Buddhism centers
