Masterclass Vigilant Awareness

In-depth retreats at La Roseraie de Sacha

In these special times, we have made special arrangements enabling you to come. We will offer you an in-depth retreat for the first two weeks of your stay.* This is an unique opportunity to spend your days in deep contemplation, profoundly silencing your being, giving yourself to the great mystery within.

* We love to keep La Roseraie a healthy environment for everybody, so we have designed special guidelines for your stay. Upon arrival we will share with you the ‘do’s and don’ts’ for the first two weeks of your retreat, safeguarding all’s well-being. 

Remember, this will be a masterclass in vigilance! And sofar… people who have been here in recent months, love it!

Naturally, you can also come for less or more than two weeks.

Retreat weeks

Guru purnima

Saturday July 24th

Many traditions worldwide celebrate the full moon in July as the moon of the spiritual guide, or guru.

Guru Purnima, as it is known in India, is a day of gratitude for all those who light our path and endlessly inspire us to realise freedom.

We enjoy this day in ritual, prayer and lots of joyful festivities.

Padmasambhava week

17 – 24 OCTOBER

In this week there will be a 24 hour recitation of the Vajra Guru mantra; the Self in the form of Padmasambhava.

This mantra calls the essence of all ‘Buddhas of all times’. The universal essence is perfect in itself and is contained in this mantra. Like every year, we will recite this 24 hour meditation with drums.
