31-08-18 A Life Without Suffering
  Speaker: Ravi Ravindra
  All spiritual teachings call for a radical transformation of our being, freeing us from our conditioned self, and moving from reation to response. Suffering which occupies our psyche and body keeps us deeply connected to our past.

During the four days, contemplation, lectures, guided imagery meditation and ritual will assist us to bring the principles to life through experience and reflection. The afternoon break gives time for solitude, conversation, local trips or walks in the beautiful grounds and woods
