Meditation workshop with Pablo d'Ors

Journey to silence

 Centro de Formación de la Cooperación Española (Salón Mutis)
Read more

This workshop is intended as an introduction to meditative practice based on the tradition of the desert ascetics and, particularly, hesychasm. Pablo d'Ors and his colleagues, through the Amigos del Desierto association, will propose basic practice, based on the body, breathing and mantra, as well as some guided exercises or meditations that can help participants to relax, be within oneself and, ultimately, get close to the mystery of the profound I. This workshop does not require any previous knowledge or experience, but does need an interest in the adventure of examining the interior through the Western tradition.
