Fall Retreat 2013 – Nice

Fall Retreat 2013 – Nice

Dear All,

Resting in gratitude for the impressive Summer Retreat in Amsterdam – you will find the first reflections on www.inclaritas.com – we are eager to build on this and to prepare the Fall Retreat in Nice.

It has been said that the materialism which dominates contemporary Western culture can be explained by our wish for eternal life. It yields a narrative of grasping, clinging, holding and hoarding – permanence – reflecting a belief system that denies acceptance of what we nevertheless know all the time: That we are enmeshed in life which is itself uncontrollable, unpredictable and impermanent.

October in Provence is a celebration of the grape harvest, of the fruits of labor, of a cycle coming to an end, of the land returning to itself. We invite you to come and consciously experience living with the small and big cycles beyond your own narrative of life.

True governance does not ignore that the good life – the deepest joy – may well come from momentarily detaching from the prevalent narrative and concentrating on being present to what is and the oscillations and peace of that presence.

For your convenience please find the pertinent details hereunder. The program outline will be sent to you in the third week of September. If you wish to form an idea of previous retreats, please have a look at the program outlines from Salisbury and Amsterdam (enclosed).

Each day is a little life: every waking and rising a little birth,
Every fresh morning a little youth,
Every going to rest and sleep a little death.
(Arthur Schopenhauer, Our Relation to Ourselves, Vol. II, Ch. II)
