April 11-12, Saturday–Sunday
Arrival Friday evening. Departure Sunday after 5pm.

A communal breakfast and spacious morning is followed by a video teaching from Candice Rinpoche at 10.30am. We then start the group training and read a powerful teaching text that evokes the instinctive recognition of the nature of mind, with space for questions and in-depth responses from the trainers. Over the lunch break, there is time spent in silent reflection, before returning for the final part of the training day.

Each day builds on the last, deepening the recognition of relaxed open intelligence. You can explore any topics in your life where you feel stuck or wish to expand and practically see how the recognition of the nature of mind, open intelligence can benefit and empower you. You will also learn how to take this empowerment back into your everyday life so that the benefits of the retreat keep on growing!

About This Event

We live in a time when it is more important than ever for us as a human community to know the beneficial power of our mind, and come together in clarity, openness and motivated for the benefit of all. 

Discovering the inherent peace, stability and clarity of mind is only the starting point – how can we use this in a powerful way to live a greatly beneficial life?

Spend this Spring discovering inner peace, freedom from suffering, well-being in all circumstances and your innate power to be of great benefit to all.

You can gain assurance in the true nature of your mind through powerful wisdom teachings and an effortless practice led by certified trainers at our beautiful Center in south Sweden and see these benefits alive in powerful community.

The easy to access teachings from Candice Rinpoche, the founder of Balanced View, enliven the innate recognition of open intelligence and love as the basis of all experience.

Venue Highlights

The Center is in the beautiful countryside of south Sweden surrounded by forests and close to many lakes. Enjoy the peaceful atmosphere in the beautiful grounds and gardens immersed in daily teachings and becoming familiar with the relaxed nature of mind.

There are bikes at the Center and you can cycle to one of the many lakes to swim. The Cafe has comfy sofas and a piano and an upstairs hangout area too, as well as plenty of home-baked cakes and healthy treats and great coffee.

We run the Center together voluntarily and in this way see the results of the practice in action. If you are moved to there are always opportunities to serve on teams helping with baking, cooking and cleaning and more.
