Japanese aesthetic and the three lakshanas

7–11 June 2024

Wabi-sabi retreat aka A Moderate Awakening

Led by Vajradarshini

(Translated from Dutch:)


It is the kind of place where church bells remind you

To your transience

Where the two cats are so zen

That you see them leading the meditations

It is one of those places where things just work out

Beyond thinking to feel love:

There would be a Source, neither temporary nor imperfect,

Just a smile far – so close

It is one of those places where you can just see a tree

Like you’ve never seen before

Where it can just happen

That connection grows in a song

It is such a place where you become silent

And – thankfully – some of that silence

Gets to take home

It is such a place

What you always thought…
