Seven Day Silent Retreat with Stephan Bielfeldt
Options available to visit the Center and participate in the online retreat. Details below.
Stephan Bielfeldt will lead this 7-day retreat, online via Zoom, from his home near Hamburg, Germany.
Stephan has led retreats at Springwater Center since 2010. This year’s retreat will be online. The schedule will include timed sittings, 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.
In a talk, titled What is Meditation?, Stephan said, “There is no need to describe in words what you see and hear and feel. The moment is a gift. It is there, just as it is. In the stillness of awareness, it is possible to go deeper into the moment, to open up more, to understand more and become even more aware. Awareness is not a superficial thing.”

We will be open to guests wanting to participate in the online retreat while staying at the Center. Participants will need their own device to sign into talks and dialogues, and bells for sitting will be accessible online and in the Sitting Room. Silence will be maintained in the building, as in usual retreat style, and meals will be available (some will be self-serve).
