Yoga, The Permaculture of Zone 0

One of the challenges of the life here at Re-Green is not to lose ourselves in the numerous, different tasks and levels of an autonomous life. Everyday necessary tasks like cooking, caring for the living beings of the farm, gardening, harvesting, building, hosting, chopping wood, running courses … and actively being out in the countryside until the sun sets, all this external practices may occupy completely the time one may allocate to look internally and care for his own wellbeing. In the beginning of the project there have been quite some times of physical exhaustion and symptoms of neglection of the body, the mind and the spirit.
Yoga came to counter balance the excesses of overworking and to offer as we say the “internal permaculture”. Caring for the earth begins with caring and nurturing oneself. Building awareness of where the body holds tension, practicing to release and connect to our internal infinite beauty became a fully appreciated everyday medicine. Awakening early in the morning to reach for the sun or restoring ourselves in the quietness of the dusk’s twilight oh yes…brought bliss, harmony, relief, centering and so much gratitude.
The resident Yoga teacher of Re-Green is Amber. She keeps the whole team in shape, uniting us in the everyday circle of Yoga, offering selfless service and walking her talk, tuning us to bring the sun or the moon out on the vast skies of our mountains. Amber speaks the language of the nature through her devoted practice of Yoga.

The Equanimous Heart

The Equanimous Heart 2018

The Equanimous Heart | A Vipassana Retreat w/ Whit Hornsberger

The mindful practice of insight meditation (vipassanā) is considered to be the direct path laid down by the Buddha himself for the purification of beings, for the overcoming of sorrow and lamentation, for the disappearance of pain and grief and for the complete cessation of all forms and levels of physical and mental suffering (dukkha).
Through the application of mindfulness (sati), concentration (samādhi) becomes increasingly more refined, providing a stable platform for the intimate investigation into the phenomena of mind (nāma) and body (rūpa). Through patient endurance and ardent effort we begin to find refuge within the ever increasing equanimity of the heart-mind, a spacious, unshakable vantage point from which to see into the ultimate reality of our psycho-physical embodiment. Through direct-felt experience insights arise, propelling the practitioner to a compassionate understanding of the laws that govern life and subsequent wisdom capable of freeing each of us from the self-generated suffering of mind.

In this eight day silent retreat we will apply the systematic methodology of the revered Burmese meditation master, Mahasi Sayadaw. Mahasi’s accessible, yet potent, scientific approach to the study of consciousness gives rise to transformative insight into the true nature of the mental (nāma) and physical (rūpa) phenomena, that which forms the bedrock of our human experience.

As knowledge is born that all psycho-physical phenomena are transient (anicca), unmanageable and beyond our control (anattā), attachment (taṇhā) to them dissolves, dispelling the fires of greed (lobha) and aversion (dosa). In the wake of their cessation, the heart-mind becomes spaciously equanimous, liberated from suffering, beautified by insight.

The great Burmese Master Mahasi Sayadaw’s approach to meditation is very clear, very precise and ‘to the point,’ faithfully adhering to the method of the Buddha in his own successful search for Enlightenment. Whit Hornsberger’s experiences of intensive monastic meditation in Burma, combined with his studies of Yoga and other forms of Eastern Spirituality, have given him a unique ability to communicate to Westerners a classical approach to meditation, one that is deeply rooted in the profound Burmese tradition.

This silent retreat will include sitting and walking meditation, daily yoga practice and interviews with the teacher.

***What is Dāna?***

The Buddhist teachings have always been considered to be priceless and thus have traditionally remained outside the realm of commodification. In Whit’s many years as a student and teacher of vipassāna he has always received his transmission of the teachings from his teachers by way of dāna or the practice of generosity and we are honoured that he has decided to offer this retreat at Re-Green no different than those he teaches in his home country of Canada, by dāna.

The practice of of vipassāna is designed to reduce the conditioned defilements of the mind – greed (lobhā), anger (dosa) and delusion (mohā).

In the words of revered meditation master Mahāsi Sayadaw:

“The aim of this practice and its greatest benefit is release from greed, hatred and delusion, which are the roots of all evil and suffering.”

Thus the practice of giving from the heart (dāna) was applied to the tradition by the Buddha to help release the heart from the shackles of greed. Whit is adamant that the future of our species and our planet depends on dissolving the greed that has become so inherent in our societies. The offering of this retreat to you by way of dāna and your support of the teachings by way of dāna is not only of benefit for those attending retreat but is placing faith in each other that we can move in a more altruistic direction as a human family.

How much should I give for dāna? 

This is a frequently asked question that is difficult to answer. When you consider that the teacher receives no wage, no payment other than your basic offering, all in return for the service of helping you, for giving teachings, private counselling and guidance, then you should be motivated, we think, to give very well indeed.
Offering Dana is a personal spiritual “practice” and thus requires a deep look into yourself — what do these teachings really mean to you? How valuable are they? What does it mean to you to be able to be a part of a tradition based on generosity? What can you truly afford in expressing your gratitude and support for what your teachers offer to you and the world? At the end of the retreat you will be given an empty envelope. Please use this opportunity to show your gratitude. Your donation is private and, if you prefer, anonymous.

Group packages available, please ask.
A deposit of 150€ is asked to hold your place.
**this retreat is offered to 20 participants only

Whit Hornsberger is a driven, passionate and inspiring being.
Driven by an innate belief that each of us is capable of radical, spontaneous evolution, Whit’s unrelenting determination and commitment to applying and sharing ancient wisdom as a catalyst for individual and in turn social change has seen him become a highly sought after teacher all around the world.
Through direct personal suffering Whit has devoted his life to the powerful, life-changing and for him, life-saving wisdom of the ancient traditions of Classical Yoga (Patañjali) and Theravada Buddhism. His life has become a medium through which he humbly transmits the teachings of the past in a colloquial manner to students from all walks of life, emphasizing that freedom from suffering is not only possible but is an endeavour that ought to be taken up by each of us.
Whit is an ardent student, whose commitment to awaken beyond the limitations of his own conditioned mind has led him around the world, from monastic experience in Myanmar (Burma) to dedicated study in revered yogic institutions of India (Kaivalyadhama), solo retreats in the forests of Canada and the United States, urban study with senior teachers within the Krishnamacharya lineage (Ramaswami) of traditional Vinyasa Yoga and seemingly everywhere in between.
Those dedicated efforts have resulted in a teacher who embodies the path with integrity and authenticity, whose compassion and loving-kindness for each student he meets is palpable and whose drive to create social change and a better future for our species and planet is evident to anyone who has the fortunate opportunity to study with Whit.
International classes, workshops, intensives, retreats, conferences, online practices and trainings are the ground from which Whit guides practitioners towards embodied well-being. His teachings faithfully adhere to the Vinyasa Krama method of the father of modern yoga, Sri T. Krishnamacharya, the Mahasi Method of vipassana (insight) meditation passed down by the late, venerable Mahasi Sayadaw (Burma) and his unique integration of Buddhist psychology with the contemporary practice of yin yoga.
Whit firmly believes that in order to move forward we must look to our past and the wisdom of our ancestors. As an internationally recognized teacher Whit continuously ensures that he honours the ancient wisdom traditions that saved his life, emphasizing through action that he is simply a medium through which the knowledge can continue to be past down, undiluted, for generations to come.

 

Re-Green & Yoga 24-30 Aug

Re-Green & Yoga – Life in a Permaculture Farm for a Week

This Summer Retreat is offered 20 – 26 July & 24 – 30 August.

For these 6 days our wish is to invite guests into the space of
Re-Green and feel at home, experiencing life here, Yoga and Permaculture together. Suitable for individuals, couples and families searching to integrate within the abundance of nature and all it has to offer.
Since the 1970’s people worldwide have adapted and experimented with permaculture and integrated it into their lifestyles and thinking. A system of designing life following natures example extending in all levels of how to perceive life, of how to assist re-generating the earth and live with it rather than on it – to manage a deeper understanding of oneself.
Allowing yourself to be immersed into a life of Permaculture & Natural living for a week can offer the experience to gain knowledge of how to implement new principles and practices into day to day life. A new experience in the mountains of Greece with fresh water to swim and opportunity to open to new experiences.

Caring for the earth begins with caring and nurturing oneself – thus we start the day with the option of practicing Yoga, a usual morning start at Re-Green. Through asana (physical exercise), pranayama, (breathing exercises) and meditation, we will create intentions for the day, become more mindful and aware of our own bodies and habits. Taking time to ‘retreat within’, observe our habits and express in a safe environment.
Classes will be taught by Amber Buckley ~ mornings offer an energetic hatha flow based lesson. (see bio below) Practicing movement, creating awareness of where the body holds tension and ways to release and connect to our natural state of freedom. Asana (poses) will be practiced with conscious breathing , finding stillness and space in the present moment. Afternoon Yoga restoration will focus on the nervous system and working with internal organs. All lessons are suitable from beginners to advanced levels and all ages with variations given to suit individual needs. The hand natural built Maloca creates a quiet calm space to breath and practice, including some outside classes within a nature walk and by the natural swimming pond.

As we move through the day after breakfast workshops include guided forest walks, active gardening, herbal knowledge -how to make oils, tinctures, teas, establishing a garden using permaculture principles, harvesting fruits and vegetables, interactive building with Natural materials. Plus spending time with our extended family of furry loved ones – dogs, cats, ducks, chickens and Maya our resident donkey who all continually love to receive affection, play and be cared for. The summer days are long in Greece and gives time to explore the local waterfalls and their cool flowing rhythm or relax at our natural swimming pond.

3 organic vegetarian meals are included daily and prepared by our resident chef with local produce most from our own garden. Fresh salads, greek cuisine, organic grains and fruit smoothies and wood fired pizza! are on the menu. Herbal teas and seasonal fruits are available all day long.

About the Maloca / shala
Our Maloca/shala is a 100sq/metre octagon, built with local, natural materials. A reciprocal beam structure roof covers the walls and windows hosting different natural techniques and is able to be heated by a very efficient wood burning rocket mass heater.

Located within Re-Green’s property it overlooks the green forest on the south and the blue greek sea on the north. We simply love it and so much practice / healing there

We will aim to root like the Trees and free our upper body to connect with the Sun.

IMPULSE DANCE + LIVE PERCUSSIONS
We begin by grounding ourselves, in the safe space of a circle, shaking and pulsing to release tension, increase blood circulation and connect with the cosmic energy of the Earth. As we pulse in different levels, our breath expands into sound and our voice can be liberated. We enter a state of profound ancestral connection and our shaking movements awaken the sacredness of our body and manifest the power of its expression.

SHARING CIRCLE
We will sit in circle as a tribe, holding a safe and sacred space for one another. We will share our intentions for new beginnings and set the foundation for our soul to give us what we need at the present moment in time.

Our Spring Happiness Home
www.re-green.gr
Re-Green is an Eco culture center, surrounded by majestic mountains, rivers and waterfalls where ancient Greek Nymphs still, preside their free spirit over fountains! (read more)
The 250 years old stone built mansion combines tradition and elegance perfectly, offering spacious and pleasurable stay. Accommodation is shared in 5 spacious rooms, renovated and decorated with natural living principles and immense love. Each room is unique with its own flexible bedding arrangements (cocomat mattresses) and private bathrooms.

The Garden
Organic fresh fruits and vegetables, grown with care and mindfulness, will actively nourish our body and elevate our souls in a harmonious co existence with nature.

The Maloca:
Our practice room is an impressive octagon Maloca/shala of a 100sq/metres, built with local, natural materials. A reciprocal beam structure roof covers the walls and windows hosting different natural techniques and is able to be heated by a very efficient wood burning rocket mass heater. Located within Re-Green’s property it overlooks the green forest on the south and the blue Greek sea on the north.

Temazcal
A hand made steam lodge, a”house of heat”. It cleanses the body after exercise, treats many diseases and improves overall health. It’s the place where our guests are offered the opportunity to “sweat it out”! Very similar to Native American sweat lodge, in our temazcal you can sweat the toxins out of the body, but you can also practice spiritual reflection and introspection. Symbolically we enter the womb of Mother Earth, and come out clean and reborn!

Animal Farm
Dogs, cats, ducks, chicken, all the little animals of the farm and Maya the donkey, are coming to you to become your friends!

Natural Swimming Pond
With cool water from the mountain flowing in and letting us cool off under the wattle tree, this healing water has amazing benefits for our body when we float or swim in it. Just like healthy soil, a balanced water system contains all the micro organisms needed to sustain the surrounding ecosystem.

Natural Waterfall
Within 10’ walk from Re-green you are under the shade of huge plane trees and thick bushy vegetation. Krios river forms a beautiful accessible Waterfall with a small natural pool where you can refresh, meditate and heal in the sound of birds and flowing waters.

Spring Awakening 2018

Στη αρχή της Άνοιξης θα δώσουμε την ευκαιρία στο σώμα μας να απαλλαχτεί από τα βάρη του χειμώνα.
Η καθημερινή πρακτική θα μας βοηθήσει να ενεργοποιηθούμε και να αποτοξινωθούμε, ώστε να υποδεχτούμε τη νέα εποχή υγιείς και αναζωογονημένοι.
Η μέρα μεγαλώνει,το φως μπαίνει στη ζωή μας και εμείς κοντά στη φύση αυτές τις μέρες θα “φυτεύσουμε σπόρους” χαράς και αφθονίας.

Το πρόγραμμα περιλαμβάνει καθημερινές δίωρες πρακτικές,πρωινές και απογευματινές,τεχνικές καθαρισμού (satkarmas), ασκήσεις αναπνοών, yoga nidra και φυσικά περπάτημα στη φύση .

Re-Green EcoCulture Center

Ο χώρος που θα μας φιλοξενήσει είναι ένα πέτρινο παραδοσιακό κτίριο 250 χρόνων. Το Re-Green είναι ένα οικοπολιτιστικό κέντρο περμακουλτούρας (και όχι ξενοδοχείο), όπου έμπρακτα ακολουθούν μια ζωή βασισμένη στις αρχές της βιωσιμότητας και της αειφορίας. Η πρόθεσή μας εδώ στο Re-Green είναι οι καλεσμένοι μας να εμπειραθούν και να έρθουν σε επαφή με τη φύση αφού πιστεύουμε ότι είναι ο απόλυτος δάσκαλος, μητέρα και θεραπευτής. Κατά τη διάρκεια της διαμονής σας, εισάγεται η ιδέα της ζωής σε κοινότητα, όπου οι συμμετέχοντες μοιράζονται τους χώρους, τα δωμάτια, το φαγητό, τα δωμάτια, τη κουζίνα και γινόμαστε μια οικογένεια. Σας προσκαλούμε να συμμετέχετε σε λίγα μικρά καθήκοντα, όπως να φροντίζετε τα πιάτα σας, να είστε προσεκτικοί στο διαχωρισμό των υπολειμμάτων της τροφής και τα σκουπίδια, κλείνοντας τα φώτα στα δωμάτια, φροντίζοντας το τζάκι σας, προσέχοντας που πατάτε στον κήπο, χρησιμοποιωντας βιοδιασπώμενα καλλυντικά.

Διατροφή
Η κουζίνα είναι χορτοφαγική και συμβαδίζει με την ευρύτερη φιλοσοφία σχετικά με την αυτάρκεια και την αειφορία ,με φρέσκα λαχανικά και φρούτα απο το κήπο.

Υπάρχει η δυνατότητα χρήσης αυτοσχέδιας σάουνας για ατμοθεραπεία ( temazcal). Για το σκοπό αυτό φέρτε μαγιώ, πετσετα και σαγιονάρες.

Το πακέτο περιλαμβάνει
* Διαμονή ( 2 νύχτες) στο χώρο του Regreen
* Πρακτική γιόγκα καθημερινά (4 μαθήματα)
* Περίπατος και ξενάγηση στο κτήμα

Θα υπάρχει δυνατότητα συνεδρίας Thai massage, ολιστικής μάλαξης και ρεφλεξολογίας κατόπιν συνεννόησης.

Για τη μετακίνηση θα πρέπει να φροντίσει ο καθένας μόνος του, παρόλα αυτά θα υπάρξει συνεννόηση προκειμένου να εξυπηρετηθούν όσοι δεν έχουν δικό τους μέσο και όσοι θέλουν να μοιραστούν τη παρέα και τα έξοδα.

Περιορισμένες θέσεις.Έγκαιρη δήλωση συμμετοχής και προκαταβολές έως 28\02.

Spring Yoga Retreat 2018

Ανοιξιάτικο Yoga Retreat με τη Γ. Γεωργόνη

2-4 Μαρτίου 2018

Ήρωες & μύθοι: ανακαλύπτοντας την πραγματική μας φύση

Στις 2-4 Μαρτίου σας προσκαλούμε στην ανοιξιάτικη εκδρομή μας στο οικοπολιτιστικό κέντρο Re-green στα Σελιανά. Ελάτε να ανοιχτούμε στην αληθινή μας φύση, στον αληθινό εαυτό μας μέσα από γιόγκικες πρακτικές & μύθους.

Οι ήρωες της γιόγκικης φιλοσοφίας & των παραμυθιών θα αποτελέσουν το έναυσμα για ενδοσκόπηση και αποκάλυψη του ήρωα που υπάρχει μέσα μας, του ήρωα που βαίνει προς την ολοκλήρωσή του ξεπερνώντας δύσκολα εμπόδια.

Ημερολογιακά θα έχουμε μπει στον πρώτο μήνα της Άνοιξης, αλλά ο καιρός θα ευνοεί ακόμη τη συγκέντρωση κοντά στο τζάκι σε συντροφιές με αφήγηση παραμυθιών αλλά και τις δυναμικές πρακτικές που θα τροφοδοτήσουν την εσωτερική μας φλόγα.
