A PEACEFUL MIND & A COMPASSIONATE HEART – with Mukesh Gupta, 26.-28.10.2023

Thursday Morning 10:00 to Saturday Afternoon 17:00


“To love is one of the greatest things in life. And to do that, to have that sense of compassion, passion for everybody, love, you must understand yourself, you must know yourself – yourself who is in sorrow, self centered activity, lonely, miserable, frightened” –  J. Krishnamurti 


The source of most of our problems in work, life and relationships is a noisy mind which mechanically lives and reacts from its past baggage. Living with anything that is untrue or dead brings great mental and emotional suffering. A peaceful mind and a compassionate heart is what we really need to live gracefully together on this beautiful earth in these challenging times. This retreat is an invitation to uncover and awaken a source of wisdom inside us which is beyond thought. This inner wisdom can help us to see clearly what is true and what is false or non-essential in our daily life and be free from unnecessary heavy burdens that blocks the natural flow of pure joy, creativity, contentment and love.


  • This retreat offers a restful break, a pause for the mind, body and heart that is essential as a foundation for deep learning and transformation. It will provide the condition for creating, all along our journey together, a meditative state of mind essential for a serious inner enquiry.
  • The intention is not to fill our minds with intellectual knowledge but to awaken the profound source of being within, so that we get inspired to live our everyday life from the wellspring of inner stillness.
  • Inspiring live talks
  • Exercises in a one-to-one setting and small group exchanges. 
  • Meditations and meditative walks in nature.


The retreat offers a safe, serious and caring space to discover ourselves, meet our deep essence and look at our whole life in a fresh, creative way, whether we are a seeker, a mindfulness practitioner, a coach, a therapist, an artist, a teacher, a professional from any field, a leader, a change-maker, a parent or simply a student of life.
