Location: Vråvej 24, 8830 Tjele – map
Also see Meeting with Didier Weiss in copenhagen.
“Non-duality aims at the understanding of our true nature through direct experience, rather than through the ever so familiar mental filter we almost continuously call upon, and the inner monologue of countless stories we tell ourselves.
The mental filter fits us so well, it is so tight as though it has always been there, right? And the stories, they keep us so intensely busy, they make us feel so alive… But in the end, are we ready to admit we feel discontented and restless?
This is an invitation to be gently but firmly guided back to the peace that was believed to be lost.
There will be a dialogue and several barefoot down-to-earth explorations. Rather than using spiritual jargon, we will surely prefer our everyday words”
Didier speaks a clear English.
About Didier: Didier (born in France) moving to Auroville, India in 1994 where he lives as a permanent resident along with his wife Cecilia and adopted 18 year-old Indian daughter, Ludivine.
While Didier did volunteer work there, his vibrant spiritual research that started when he was a teenager could fully deepen and bloom.
He soon came across writings by Ramesh Balsekar, an Advaita teacher that used to be a disciple and translator of Nisargadatta Maharaj. Didier visited Ramesh in Mumbai several times a year for a few days at a time over a period of 3 years until a resolution emerged in 1998.
He very much enjoys sharing his passion for non-duality and every year since 2017, he travels to Europe to give conferences and intensive workshops.
Didier is the author of “Non-dual Explorations – Return to the Lost Paradise” – a book published by Accarias L’Originel in French 2016.
Meeting: We will together explore the jungle of so-called “spiritual” concepts and try to find what is Alive here. We will not be impressed or even interested in the vocabulary of the usual, traditional, mystical or esoteric non dual descriptions.
What are we REALLY talking about when attention points to this/our essence, to what we are intimately beyond appearances, experiences, memories, beliefs, stories?
And in this ultimate simplification, in this unknowing, a possibility can emerge: to seize a golden thread, to re-cognize this evidence of Being which has been closer than close all throughout what we call “our life” as a man or a woman. And this humanity can thus be “informed” without being denied or destroyed, in a kind of dance between Essence and Manifestation.
This residential retreat requires passion and dedication. Its format is intensive: each moment of our waking hours, literally from the time we wake up in the morning till we fall asleep in the evening, will be dedicated in various ways to discover the perfume of Freedom. We will alternate explorations, exercises,
Rest assured that there will also be leisure time alone or in groups. However distractions will be kept to a minimum so that this total immersion fosters Re-cognition.
This workshop will be preceded by some 3 weeks of “light preparation” through email communications. This will allow us to start from an already established common ”base camp”. It will also be followed by personalized support with Didier for those who would like to pursue the exchange over the next weeks after the retreat is over.
