Ajiit holds regular retreats in the Mauna House. The retreats provide a great opportunity to get away from the routine of everyday life and focus intensively on knowing ourselves at a deeper level. Ajiit’s presence and the calm surroundings will help to quieten the body and mind and direct the attention inside. During the two days we get closer to discovering who we really are beyond the picture we know and believe about ourselves. With Ajiit’s guidance the way towards ourselves becomes more and more clear and visible.
During the retreat every morning starts with Jiaido movement meditation, created by Ajiit to help bring the attention to the state of Here and Now. Two times daily we gather for meetings with Ajiit, where you can bring up your questions and sharings.
Mauna Retreat with Ajiit
"Your original being is pure and empty
like a white paper.
During our life, society writes upon that page
and this text becomes your personality,
you even believe you are nothing but that text.
The return of your attention back to the empty page is called freedom."
During our life we become so occupied with our own personal story, our own feelings and emotions, thoughts, our past and future, that we forget: who we really are, is beyond all that. For self development we need to come out from this very personal and self centered perspective and start to connect to ourselves and life on a wider scale. This will affect our relation with others and the world. It will lead to independence and maturity, which are necessary for self discovery.
As long as we are completely occupied with our personal issues and difficulties, there is no place for truth and freedom. No matter what spiritual teachings we receive, there is no place for understanding the Truth about our being,
because we are full.
Based on his own direct experience of Self realization, Ajiit guides us to find the way to inner transformation and spiritual development. He will offer some practical tools to come over the complete occupation of attention by personal issues, and come to another level of maturity, independence and self discovery and freedom.
The retreat takes place at Mauna House, where the lovely and natural environment will also help to turn your attention inside.
The program starts in the mornings with JIAIDO active movement meditation practice designed by Ajiit to bring the attention to the Here and Now. Daily two meetings with Ajiit provide opportunity to ask your questions and share your understanding.
Date: Spring 2023
Meals: 3 vegetarian meals daily, prepared together.
Please note, that for participation in any of the retreats and camps, it is important that you read and be aware of the conditions and regulations:
We are very happy to receive you in Mauna House and at the same time we would like to remind you to be aware of the purpose of your stay.
As Ajiit says, Mauna House is a place for Self development and Self discovery. In such an environment our stay needs to help us bring our attention into the direction of Self inquiry.
Therefore we would like you to respect the following principles during your stay:
Preserve the silence - communicate as little as possible. Stay away from all unnecessary conversations, storytelling.
Stay inside the environment of Mauna House in any case.
Retreat from your everyday life. For the time of your stay don't contact friends and relatives, anyone outside. Stay away from using mobile phones, except in case of urgency, for 20 minutes after dinner.
During your stay focus on your own self inquiry and avoid any kind of advising, healing and counceling activities for others.
Follow the program of the day, participate in every activity and associate yourself with the group.
Take care of Mauna House as your own and take part in the housework, including food preparation, cleaning up and so on.
Smoking is permitted only in the marked area and please be aware not to use it as an excuse for social gathering.
Let us communicate with each other with respect, tolerance and love.
In case of any questions, you can refer to the program organizers of Mauna House.
We wish you to use Mauna House as a tool for meeting the Self.
