What you need to pack

Shower gel, slippers, alarm clock, hairdryer, solid footwear for the fast walking exercises that are taking place outside when possible, non-slip socks for when the exercise has to take place inside. Please wear modest clothes when you are inside the house or sitting (no colorful athleisure, short pants or sleeveless tops).

Participatory work

Every course member works for an hour a day. This work is a fixed part of the mindfulness exercise. Practical work is exercised in silence to help concentration, as well as make the workers aware of any preexisting conditioning, that can be let go through becoming aware of them. Through meditation a power awakens in us, that can find its expression in this intentional work, that in itself is without intention. Work is seen as very important in our practice. In it we can work on mindfulness and awareness.

Silence

Benediktushof, as a center for meditation and mindfulness. is a place of silence, where guests can find inner peace. This is why many courses are taking place in silence.

We ask you to keep silent inside the house and during meals.

If it is necessary to speak please be aware of your surroundings and make sure you are not disturbing anyone else. If you open ourself to the silence, you will realize how soothing it is.
