August 7 to 13, 2017 in Saarland
Due to high demand and a waiting list during this year’s Winter Youth Retreat, we offer a Summer Youth Retreat for the first time. Just like the Winter Youth Retreats, it will give young adults an opportunity to learn and practice meditiation….
We live in a world of endless possibilities, especially for young people. That’s a wonderful opportunity on the one hand – but on the other hand it also creates a tremendous amount of pressure and stress. HIGHER – FASTER – BETTER seems to be the motto of our time, be it for students, young professionals, or those of us who face choices concerning their further way. In our hectic and stressful everyday lives, there’s a lack of one thing in particular: Time and space to just be.
The SITA youth programs offer exactly that. After 10 amazing editions of our Winter Youth Retreat, we will offer the first SITA Summer Youth Retreat! It will give – as the winter youth retreats – young adults an opportunity to learn and practice mindfulness meditation in a beautiful, supportive environment.
The SITA Summer Youth Retreat provides a relaxed environment for combining the practice of meditation with outdoor activities; experiencing mindfulness and presence in the meditation room as well as outdoors. In summer nature beckons us to explore, go outside, enjoy life – without any agenda, to-do lists or time pressure.
In addition to daily meditation and mindfulness practice there will be workshops and talks, yoga classes, sports offerings and plenty of space for spontaneity and leisure. Furthermore – and in our experience that’s the real treasure of the youth programs – we will have the opportunity to get to know likeminded peers from different nations, cook, celebrate and make music together.
