The Womb Meditation Center

The Diamond Lotus Meditation Retreat
 
  On the last weekend of every month, The Womb hosts The Diamond Lotus Meditation Retreat. This is a beautiful opportunity to dive into your innermost stillness. We use a variety of techniques such as guided meditations, awareness exercises, dance, movement, voice -- and Osho active meditations as well as some ancient methods of meditation.

These techniques are conducted in a playful way where the search for silence and for the joyful heart of the innocent child can dance together. Your eyes can become innocent, like a newborn baby ... simple and full of wonder.

The Garden
 
  The Garden
We have 6,000 square meters of garden with a bamboo grove, a pond, and big trees. The land is on a cliff, below which is a river where one can swim surrounded by rice fields and forest. We are in a big valley surrounded by mountains that were once volcanoes, which is why we have hot springs here.

 
















The House
 
  Our main house is built in traditional, open-style Thai Lanna design. From the large porch you can enjoy a spectacular view of the whole surrounding area. All activities are centered around it.
We provide accommodation in 3 adjacent houses.
1. The Garden House, constructed with bricks made of mud from our pond. The walls keep the interior cool during the daytime, and warm during cold winter nights.
2. The River View House is a teak wood alpine cottage next to the river.
3. The Rice House is a teak wood barn at least 70 years old, originally built to store rice. We dismantled it in the neighboring village and rebuilt it here. According to local custom, these houses are built on wooden columns to protect the rice from insects and animals.

The Meditation and Group Room
 
  An artistically built, stand-alone pavilion with 110 square meters of floor space. Shaped in the form of an octagon and surrounded by trees. The wooden teak ceiling gives the room a warm feeling; the seating uses traditional Thai style cushions, and three big A/C units keep the room fresh. The powerful sound system is guaranteed to make you jump! In addition, there is a large LCD screen for videos. It will function as a group room for workshops, meditations and concerts.

Work is happening
 
  We started the Center in the beginning of 2010 on an idyllic piece of land. During the past one and half years we have worked on creating the basic infrastructure – firstly building a dirt road to access the property, then installing electricity, putting in fans and a water system capable of supplying the house with water and irrigating the land. Then we built a group shower/toilet unit, a house with a large group room, residential bungalows, a bigger kitchen and a wooden deck for the restaurant overlooking the river. We have also started constructing a swimming pool which will be heated by solar panels, free of chemicals and rich in magnesium and potassium minerals.

Oceanic Aquafloating, Budapest 2007
 
  Oceanic Aquafloating is one of the gentlest methods of aquatic therapy. It is a feminine, passive approach. Floating movements on the water surface and underwater can guide you into states of deep relaxation and stillness. In an Oceanic Aquafloating session you can learn how to melt and merge by expanding into the limitless. You can experience deep feelings of oneness and connectedness - a state we experienced in our mother’s womb.
