(No availability) 5 Day The Bliss of Concentration Silent Meditation Retreat in Menorca, Balearic Islands

Menorca International Retreat Centre, Camí sa Roca, 14, 07740 Es Mercadal, Illes Balears, Spain

Super Practical Meditation Retreat in Spain

Before you develop concentration, you feel some kind of mental and physical discomfort more or less all the time. Your state of mind quickly changes. For a short while, you are happy, but then you are sad. Your physical condition also changes quickly. In the morning, you may feel well, but by the evening, you may be feeling sick. When you attain tranquil abiding, you do not experience any mental or physical discomfort. Your mind becomes peaceful and you are always able to generate virtuous thoughts and feelings and create the causes for happiness. The topics covered in this silent retreat include a wide variety of relevant and important aspects of having happiness in our lives. Topics such as death, karma, love, compassion, mind, tantra and Buddhist wisdom, among others, are vital to enjoy a peaceful, happy and meaningful life. This retreat will have some teachings in Spanish so it is necessary to know Spanish.
