Program

You will enjoy five days of silent walking in the beautiful nature surrounding the land of Kausay. There will be hills, forests, fields, natural pools, a cave, and a waterfall.

Day one, three, and five will have a long walk of about six hours with stops along the way for guided meditations, rest, and lunch. Day two and four will have a morning walk followed by a relaxing siesta.

Walks will have a calm pace and will be shared in silence, once back at camp, the space will be open for sharing, connecting, and the enjoyment of being together.

Each day will be started by a yoga session and a healthy breakfast, in the evening's guided meditations, meditative dance and a sound healing concert will take place.

Would you like to experience walking in silence and connecting deeply with your inner landscape and the landscape around? Are you healthy and in for a good walk with a challenging part here and there? Do you love to live in simplicity, close to nature? If yes to all questions, this retreat is really for you!

About the instructor

The walks and meditations will be guided me, Ellen van Iersel. I have been practicing in the Buddhist tradition for over 20 years and sat many silent Vipassana retreats and joined various Yatras; silent meditative walks, often in the sanga of Christopher Titmuss, one of my most inspiring teachers.

6 years ago I completed the teacher training to share the MBSR (mindfulness-based stress reduction) training developed by Jon Kabat Zinn. Sharing this training gave me a deeper understanding of the working of the mind and the challenges that lie in our high speed, goal-orientated society. It also deepened my love for silence, nature, and the wisdom of the Buddha’s teachings.

Over the years I have shared this love in silent meditation retreats, silent walks and spiritual journeys to India. In 2018 I moved to Spain, it is wonderful to share this retreat on and around our beautiful land and share the enjoyment of living in nature!

Kausay is located in a remote valley south of Valencia. Pickups will be scheduled from Xativa train station at 1 p.m. on the day the retreat begins. If you are traveling from abroad, you will want to fly to Valencia International airport. From there you travel by metro and train to Xativa city, which will take around 2 hours, depending on your luggage, etc.

You will be picked up and brought to Kausay community from there. You will want to schedule your return flight on the final day, anytime after 1 p.m. from Valencia and the organizer will make sure you are there on time. Do not book your flight earlier than these times as it will cause transportation issues in getting you back for your flight.
