Appreciating what is real. A weekend retreat with Metta (Irene Wulff) – Formerly Sister Metta

September 23 @ 6:00 pm - September 25 @ 2:00 pm

For many of us, letting go means losing what is dear and important to us.
Maybe something that gives or has given meaning to our existence.
We often hold onto and lose ourselves in our memories or desires. When
we lose ourselves, we suffer and can no longer see and appreciate what is
real. Accept what is there – not always easy! Letting go happens when we
are no longer holding on. Can we also see this as an opportunity for
something new to manifest and to accept and respect what is actually
already there? Right here could be the starting point of a different
perspective on our life.
This weekend we want to take up this topic in meditation. We’ll see, where
do we hold on? Does that help and support us? Or does that keep us stuck
in old patterns of behaviour and identities that are no longer relevant to the
present moment?
