Change and Impermanence: Deepening Meditation Retreat
The Corona Pandemic appeared and showed the world the presence of impermanence on so many different levels. It also makes the truth very visible that impermanence is nothing new, it has always been there throughout our lives – it is part of it – as soon as we are born, impermanence of our own life is born with it.
In the tradition and practice of meditation impermanence is a very important topic. It is something which we face every time when we practice as well as always present in life.
Things end and new things come, this can be a very wonderful or a very painful process.
Therefore we need to be aware of how we go through difficult times and how to make the right decisions. This is not the time to find answers of how this crises is going to affect us, it is the time to step back, to look deeper and to work with our minds in order to make the right decisions.
A lot has changed in recent months. We all look at these changes with very different emotions, because in most cases both beautiful and less beautiful situations occur. Some may currently have an unusually large amount of time and rest for themselves and can contact a lot of friends, while others are facing distance, illness and death, or are reaching their limits professionally or privately due to the current situation.
The crisis has also affected Hotel Schloss Heinsheim and Young Sita Meditation. Due to this we have decided together with the hotel that we will offer this program in a different way we normally do.
There will be no program staff and no daily work task. You will be fully served by the staff of Hotel Schloss Heinsheim. The price of our program unfortunately had to be higher than usual but as we all very much wanted to do this we found a way for it to still be much cheaper than the normal hotel prices in Heinsheim.
Meeting friends, experiencing nature – finding oneself
Hotel Schloss Heinsheim is an incredibly beautiful place and is a perfect place for experiencing Summer Meditation. Besides meditating for several hours and listening to talks every day, we can enjoy beautiful nature by sitting together under the apple trees in the back garden or by going swimming in the outside pool. The area around Heinsheim is surrounded by wine mountains and the river Neckar flows gently through the valley. Just perfect to go for walks.
Participation – this time also possible over 35 years
For now we can offer 25 places and we hope we will be able to host more. If you are interested please register soon. You can cancel your reservation without cost – at this point for us it is important to get a realistic estimate of how many people can and would like to come.

Seeing young people discover meditation in a friendly environment is the greatest motivation I can imagine. In parallel, I discover myself, step by step – this experience remindes me where I came from – a fresh beginners mind. Very precious.
