Seven-Day Online Retreat with Stephan Bielfedt
June 4 - June 11
This retreat’s format is dynamic as we stay responsive to the evolution of COVID. Stephan Bielfedt will give talks and private meetings and will take part in the daily group dialogue online using Zoom. Currently, you can participate in this retreat via Zoom on a personal device from your home, Springwater Center, or other location of your choosing. If you choose to participate from Springwater, you will need your own device to access Zoom at least for group dialogues. We will share more details regarding the format of this retreat soon. Please email Maggy at email@example.com for more information or to reserve a room.
Stephan started working with Toni Packer in 1983, regularly taking part in her retreats in Germany and and in the United States. Towards the end of 1990, Toni asked him to offer private meetings with participants during her retreats in Germany. In 2003, she asked that he lead retreats in Poland and in Germany, and since that time, he has been holding retreats regularly in German and in English, and has also helped to found two meditation groups.
Stephan’s daily retreat schedule is similar to the schedules of retreats held in Springwater, with a talk being given in the late morning, private meetings in the early morning and in the evening, and a group meeting in the afternoon. Part-time participation is possible.
In Stephan’s words,
I was most fortunate to have been able to work closely with Toni Packer for so many years. I seek to share with others the experience and insights of those years of meditation work, in the meditation groups and in retreat.
