The Way To Inner Stillness

~ A meditation retreat in silence ~

with Gustav Gårdlund


 

Welcome to a 3 day long retreat in silence – a path to deeper contact with your consciousness where you can achieve stillness, presence, inner peace and happiness. 

 

 

Silence and inner contact

During the retreat we will be in Noble Silence, which means that we give full focus inwards. We have no verbal or physical contact with each other, in order to more clearly hear, see and understand our infinite inner. Also the meals will be in silence and without social interaction.

Five times a day we gather for still meditation, partly guided, but mostly in silence. We also have daily sharing, where we have the possibility to formulate our experiences and share them with each other.

Books, phones and other unnecessary things we put aside during the retreat. Of course the choice is always yours, but we want to invite you to refrain from contact with the outside world. If possible don´t use caffeine or nicotine.

When we give ourselves to Meditation and try to receive its transformative qualities in complete trust, we are able to achieve inner peace. Because then we can clearly observe our mind and understand our destructive and creative patterns. When we see all that we are and all that we do, we can also choose what we want to be and do. We are not victims of anyone or anything. Happiness is a conscious choice in every moment.

– Gustav Gårdlund

Who is the retreat for?

The retreat is for those who want to go inward and explore consciousness beyond the mind in a guided and safe context. This is an opportunity to meet yourself and learn to feel good in you own company regardless of external circumstances. The meditation can be a way through anxiety, depression, panic attacks, fears or unhappiness if you suffer from any of these.

 

The practice is yours

The retreat offers an amazing and well-proven technology, meditation, which can make us free from suffering in life. Meditation can give us complete balance and harmony.

You need to dedicate yourself to the tool and really work to make it yours. It’s very much about taking your own responsibility and indulge instructions given during the retreat. The more you meditate, the bigger is the possibility to reach what you long for.

 

Feedback from previous participants

-I really appreciate the workshop space and Gustavs way of holding space for the group. He is dedicated to creating something good and lasting for us. – Andreas

-I think both the course and Gustav was magic. He walks his talk and there is really an air of peace around him. He opens up as much as we do during sharing and I appreciate that a lot. It puts him on same level as us participants. When I approached him and shared about my difficulties with meditation he later brought up some good advises with the whole group. -Ella

-Gustav holds the space in a safe manner and gives a good and a rewarding course. – Jack

-I had high expectations and longing for coming to peace within myself. And I really have. Very good guided meditations and I also liked that we were able to try it out on our own as well. Awesome! – Anonym

Vägen till inre stillhet

~ Meditationsretreat i tystnad ~

med Gustav Gårdlund


 

Välkommen till en 3-dagars meditationsretreat i tystnad – en väg till fördjupad kontakt med ditt medvetande för att uppnå stillhet, närvaro, inre frid och lycka.

 

 

Tystnad och kontakt inåt

Under retreaten kommer vi att vara i ”nobel silence” (ädel tystnad) vilket innebär att vi ger fullt fokus inåt i oss själva. Vi har ingen verbal eller kroppslig kontakt med varandra, detta för att tydligare höra, se och förstå vårt inre. Även måltiderna kommer att vara i tystnad och utan social interaktion.

Fem gånger om dagen samlas vi för stillasittande meditationer, guidade och i tystnad. Vi har även en timmes sharing varje dag där vi i ord får möjlighet att formulera och dela våra upplevelser med varandra.

Böcker, telefoner och andra materiella saker lägger vi i från oss under retreaten. Om möjligt uppmanar vi även till avstå från kontakt med omvärlden samt att inte använda koffein eller nikotin under vistelsen.

När vi ger oss hän till meditationen och försöker ta emot dess transformerande kvaliteter i fullständig tillit, har vi möjlighet att uppnå inre frid. Detta eftersom vi då tydligt kan se vårt inre, och förstå våra destruktiva och kreativa mönster. När vi ser allt det vi är, och allt det vi gör, kan vi samtidigt välja vad vi vill vara och göra. Vi är inte offer för någon eller något. Acceptansen och lyckan är ett aktivt val i varje ögonblick.

— Gustav Gårdlund

Vem riktar sig retreaten till?

Retreaten riktar sig till dig som vill gå inåt och utforska medvetandet bortom sinnet, i ett hållet och guidat sammanhang. En möjlighet att möta sig själv och lära sig att trivas bättre i sitt eget sällskap, oberoende av yttre omständigheter. Meditation kan också vara till hjälp för den som lider av depression, ångest, ilska, rädslor eller sorg.

Du äger verktyget

Retreaten erbjuder en fantastisk och välbeprövad teknik, meditation. Den kan göra oss fria från lidande i livet och ge oss fullständig balans och harmoni.

Du behöver dedikera dig till verktyget och verkligen arbeta för att ta det till dig. Det handlar i mycket hög grad om att ta ditt eget ansvar och ha egen hög motivation att följa instruktionerna som ges under retreaten.

Ju mer du mediterar, desto större möjlighet att nå det du längtar efter.

Feedback från tidigare kursdeltagare

-Jag uppskattar varmt Gustavs val av plats för retreatet, samt hans gåva att hålla space för gruppen. Hans dedikering för att skapa bra för oss är väl igenkännligt. – Andreas

-Jag får stort förtroende för Gustav. Han är trygg i sin guidning, berör och vågar gå bortanför “ridån” i sin guidning. Varm person men med skön distans till gruppen, dvs mogen, ej “kletig” – Linda

-Jag tycker kursen och Gustav har varit magisk. Han lever verkligen så som han lär och andas lugnet, öppnar upp sig lika mycket som oss under sharingen, vilket jag uppskattar. Detta gör honom mer mänsklig och mer på “samma nivå” som oss deltagare. När jag kom till honom för att berätta om mina utmaningar med meditationen tog han det på allvar och tog upp bra knep med hela gruppen. -Ella

-Kursen har varit genomtänkt och givande, upplägget har varit bra. -Anonym

-Gustav håller “spacet” bra och ger ett bra och givande kursupplägg. – Jack

-Hade höga förväntningar på att komma till ro och det har jag verkligen gjort. Bra guidade meditationer och bra att vi fick prova på på egen hand också. Superbra! – Anonym
