I've met with valuable answers to my inner questions during my stay here,
1.I was invited to meditations twice a day, morning and evening.
Since I've already been meditating on my own, I have never cared much about meditating with others, which sometimes may have negative effect. However, when I joined here with others, it was surprisingly very nice.
Maria(the host) has been a long time meditator and spiritual practitioner. Anyone with some practice could feel unique energy in her presence and that would affect anyone's meditation in a positive way.
2.This place is located in a small town, Hoisdorf, which is surrounded by lakes, green fields, forests, and twinkling stars at night. It was truly amazing whenever I took a walk, morning, afternoon, evening. The walk automatically became meditation itself.
3.This place also hosts traveling volunteers throughout the whole year. During my stay, I met travelers from Israel and Portugal, which both had amazing stories and energies. They also were spiritual practitioners on their own through yoga, green living, and environmental consciousness. I've learned so much just by talking with them.
4.Even though, all the above make this place sound very active and lively, there was always silence, which kept everything in check and in balance. At the start of the group meditation, Maria mentions only one thing. "We share the silence. No matter which meditation technique or beliefs or traditions one follow." This resonated in me deeply. There are things in this life that cannot be explained fully with mere words. So there comes the silence. I often believe the silence is the most broad and universal language to awaken understandings of life's phenomenons. And there it was. "We just share the silence."
I am writing this review while I'm waiting for the bus in Hamburg. I sincerely appreciate the opportunity for this resonating experience and wish everyone who comes across this place to go through the similar.
May all have wonderful life.
We are very pleased with our stay. The place is perfectly clean and tidy and the owner Maria is very helpful and friendly.
Just the perfect environmet for your holliday or business trip.
We loved the combination of being in the nature, but still not far away from the city.
The house is just next a nature reserve and you can observe many different birds.
Or you can go sightseeing in Hamburg since the city is easy to reach by bus.
