Date Catégories Langues | Languages
Sunday 18 October à 20:00 au Friday 23 October 2020 à 12:00
  • Pratique méditative
  • Retraite
Les conditions de participation impliquent le strict respect des mesures barrières, que ce soit pour les pratiques ou les stages. Veuillez consulter les règles COVID à respecter avant d'envoyer votre demande de réservation.

Par la force de l’habitude notre esprit est souvent agité par le flot de pensées liées à un passé qui n’est plus, ou à un futur qui n’est pas encore advenu. Différentes méthodes, associant la posture du corps et de l’esprit, permettent de nous familiariser avec les mouvements des émotions et des pensées. Grâce à l’entraînement à la présence attentive, combiné à la détente juste, l’esprit, moins troublé par les pensées, s’apaise progressivement. Nous devenons plus lucides quant à ce que nous expérimentons et nous pouvons alors mieux adapter nos actions – avec plus de conscience et de responsabilité – pour notre propre bienfait et celui d’autrui. Le silence favorise aussi bien l’immersion dans la pratique formelle – assise ou en marchant – que l’exploration dans des situations de la vie quotidienne comme les temps de repas ou les activités partagées.
Au cours de cette retraite, des sessions de méditation assise alterneront avec des marches en conscience. Des instructions seront données en introduction de certaines sessions et in enseignement sera donné chaque soir. Un entretien collectif par petit groupe est proposé tous les deux jours sous forme de questions/réponses. Une session avec des mouvements en conscience issus du yoga sera proposée chaque jour.

Ces journées se dérouleront en silence. Il est nécessaire d’avoir déjà reçu des instructions et pratiqué la méditation pour participer à “Approfondir la méditation”.

Frais de session : 12 €/jour

      Vigilance COVID at Montchardon

      The programme now takes place under special circumstances, since the Centre may resume its activities provided that the health rules are strictly observed.

      The conditions of participation imply strict compliance with the barrier measures, whether for practices or courses.

      Here is how we will organize ourselves.
      For places of worship such as Montchardon, the rules set by the State are as follows:

      • - upon arrival at the Centre, the trainee must not be ill or show symptoms of the virus.
      •  obligation to maintain a distance of 1m around oneself, in the temple, in the refectory and when moving around the Centre,
      • - mandatory wearing of a protective mask in :
        •   - the temple: permanently during the teachings and daily collective practices.
        •   - the refectory: from the entrance to the moment of sitting down and if you get up to get a drink or to go out.
        •   - all other situations: as soon as it is difficult to maintain distance from others,
      • - hand washing with hydro-alcoholic gel at the entrance and exit of the temple and refectory, every time you enter the self-service area and on all occasions when you have to touch a collective object.
      • - An identifiable member of the administration will be responsible for the entry and exit phases of the prayer area to ensure that the rules are respected.

      If you are unable or unwilling to follow these guidelines, we ask that you do not come to the Centre while these rules are in effect. The same applies, of course, if you are ill or have symptoms of the virus.

      About Lama Teunsang

      It is essential to protect Lama Teunsang whose immunity is compromised, making him extremely vulnerable to infection, and the people at the centre are in daily contact with him for meals and care. This also means that it is not appropriate to return to Lama Teunsang's home to greet him. For the compelling reasons mentioned above, he currently only receives those who care for his health.

      No offering of kata to Lama Teunsang
      It is asked to stay away from him, at least 1m and not to offer him a kata.
      This use, so much appreciated by all of us, is currently suspended during the Covid period, to preserve its still fragile health.

      Individual interview with Lama Teunsang
      We asked Lama Teunsang about personal interviews. He does not wish to resume them for the time being. We will inform you of their resumption when he tells us so.
      However, it is possible to request an interview with one of the Lamas of Montchardon. See with the translator.

      In brief

      Access to the temple will be limited to 80 people to respect sanitary distances. For accommodation, the rooms with several people will become individual accommodation, except for couples or families. The number of dormitory places will be reduced to space between beds. We will thus be able to accommodate about 80 people. The campsite will be open, the installation of the tents will have to follow the same instructions. We will have disinfecting liquids in all the places where it is necessary.

      We would like to remind you:

      • - on the one hand, failure to respect the rules could lead to the closure of the Centre and legal proceedings.
      • - on the other hand, we have a moral obligation to protect ourselves and others from a potentially dangerous disease, especially since we live in collective premises.

      As Buddhist practitioners, the constraints of masks, social distances and frequent hand washing can be integrated into our practice, as a constant training for vigilance and support of attention in our daily actions. It is also a great opportunity to practice the awakening mind, the altruistic attitude: "I commit myself to make this effort, thinking more about the well-being and health of others than about my own inconvenience". These are the skillful means of Dharma called " integrating unpleasantness into the path ".
