As the deep meditation days have always been the heart of the festival, we will dive into the first journey of the 21 stages of meditation course.
The course is about deepening your contemplative capacity in a community of practitioners and it gives you tools and a deep understanding of your Self. The goal is clear: happiness. The nature of meditation is well-defined: refine the mind and elevate your awareness.
In the 21 stages we explore the process of meditation, that it is a path, containing different stages and that it is normal, that we travel through several landscapes.
We are looking forward to a transformative experience with you.
