Amanjiwo’s annual meditative retreat returns in September 2012. The comprehensive programme includes guided meditation classes, private yoga instruction and in-depth archaeological tours of Borobudur and other prominent Buddhist monuments. For both novice and experienced practitioners, this four-night retreat offers a personal spiritual journey in beautiful natural surrounds, close to one of the world’s oldest Buddhist sanctuaries.
Located at the foot of Menoreh Hills, Amanjiwo looks out onto the 9th-century Buddhist sanctuary of Borobudur and is the ideal setting in which to celebrate the spiritual legacy of Central Java. Amanjiwo welcomes back meditation teacher Khandro Thrinlay Chodon, a Buddhist of Vajrayana lineage. Khandro-la, as she is known, was born into a family of Buddhist yogis and raised in an environment where spirituality was an integral part of everyday life. The retreat will also include sessions with Amanjiwo’s resident archeologist, Toni Tack.
The meditation programme will take place from 20-24 September and will immerse participants in the compassionate and comprehensive spirit of Buddhism. Offering an opportunity for reflection and peaceful contemplation, it will include morning meditation instruction, evening lectures, private healing and counselling, and excursions to Borobudur, a Theravada Buddhist monastery and the 9th-century Mendut Temple.
