Bild Retreats & Seminare Bali Mandala

Open Retreats

If it can be your everyday practice to open
to all your feelings and emotions,

To all people and situations you encounter,
without closing down,

Trusting that you can do that –
then that will take you as far as you can go.

And then you’ll understand all the teachings
that anyone has ever taught.
