Journey to Peace

A spiritual retreat embodying the foundation of Aman

Sought after by humankind since time immemorial, peace is the main pillar of Aman’s philosophy and the meaning of its Sanskrit-derived name. Dedicated to gently teaching you to find this elusive state within, this unique spiritual retreat will be led by internationally renowned Tibetan Bon Buddhist spiritual master and scholar, Geshe YongDong (Geshe La), at Aman’s four serene retreat centres in Indochina this October and November. Geshe La will share the ancient lessons of the Bon tradition at Amanoi, Amanpuri, Amansara and Amantaka – each a place of contemplation and connection – enabling you to find the serenity of heart, mind and spirit you seek.

The retreat

Under the intuitive and loving guidance of a spiritual master – ‘Geshe’ is the highest monastic degree in Buddhist philosophy – you will learn specific and practical skills enabling you to find peace in everyday life. Special techniques including breath control to calm the mind, Tsa Lung physical exercises to relax the body, mindfulness practice to heighten awareness of the present moment, and meditation to discover inner peace will be taught over the course of five days.

Attachment

Like a hand that holds too tightly to an object and cannot open to grasp something new, we as humans sometimes cling too much to concepts and objects. In this session, you will learn the three levels of attachment and how to let go to achieve greater peace and well-being.

Changing perceptions

Our perceptions, whether positive or negative, influence every aspect of our well-being.  Using positive thinking patterns creates positive experiences in life, whereas focusing on negative thoughts invites negativity in. Becoming aware of your perceptions and then choosing to focus on the positive will lead to transformation of heart and mind, bringing greater fulfilment and a more peaceful spirit.

The power of the breath

Stress and negative emotions are often accompanied by shallow breathing that is fast and out of control. But by controlling your breath, you can control how you feel. This session will focus on developing slow and mindful breathing, linking the breath with the mind to empower you in choosing how you feel on a daily basis.

Healing anger

Anger has the destructive force of a lit match in a dry forest. It can destroy peace of mind in a heartbeat. By understanding the two types of anger, hot and cold, and by practising the special insight techniques of mindfulness and awareness, you can gain control over this powerful negative emotion and transform your daily life.

Living in the moment

Our thoughts often wander between the past and the future without focusing on the clarity, passion and perfection of the present moment. Focusing instead on the five senses – seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting and touching – and bringing awareness into the here and now, you can re-awaken to the present moment and the peace it offers.

There is suffering, there is a cause for suffering, there is an end of suffering, and there is a path of practice that relieves suffering
