Meditative Weekend At the Sisters of Zion convent, Ein Karem, Jerusalem
Friday & Saturday, May 10 & 11 2013
The Sisters of Zion convent, Ein Karem
In the beautiful and quiet surroundings of the convent and its gardens, we gathered during two days for a meditation retreat. Nearly 70 people, T.S. members and guests came together for inner listening and attunement to other participants and the surrounding nature. Amidst the beauty and serenity, the flowers, the fragrance of herbs, the sound of water flowing, and the birds singing, we sat quietly focusing on various themes or just moved around in walking meditation.
The central motto of the retreat's program was meditation, both guided and silent, accompanied by short discussions and sharing.
