Norway Retreat

Welcome to the Midsummer Retreat 2018 in Tjøme/ Norway!

Once again Supreme Matriarch Ji Kwang Dae Poep Sa Nim offers us the great opportunity to have a 4-Day Retreat in lovely Tjøme in the heart of nature, where Dae Poep Sa Nim personally used to do many retreats before.

Tjøme is an island situated 120 km south of Oslo in the outer Oslo fjord. The archipelago consists of several islands on the west side of the fjord, connected to the mainland as well as to each other with bridges.

The retreat place is located in beautiful surroundings close to the sea and next to a large golf course. It has a main building, several cabins and smaller houses, a house with a big dharma room and a house with a hot swimming pool.

We will start our common practice on Thursday, June 21st at 9 a.m. and we’ll finish on Sunday, June 24, around 2 p.m. As always, we will practice together in a relaxed ambiance. The retreat is a great opportunity to deepen one’s practice or, for beginners, a wonderful way to start walking on the path to enlightenment and infinite happiness. 

This special 4-Day Retreat includes a Buddhist opening celebration, sitting and walking meditation, Mantra practice, chanting, energy exercises (Ki-Song and prostrations), listening to Dharma speeches of Ji Kwang Dae Poep Sa Nim (audio and video), teaching discussions and personal questions to Dae Poep Sa Nim. There will also be introductions especially for new students. During the retreat, Ji Kwang Dae Poep Sa Nim will give a practice assignment for every day and will continuously send energy through the mantra to all the participants.

We will also have other activities: swimming in the sea (a bit cold in June) or in the indoor pool (comfortably hot), walking along the sea or taking a boat trip. And since we have midsummer we will experience sunlight almost until midnight!

Simple accomodation is provided in small houses and cabins shared with other participants during the retreat. Those who prefer can as well stay in a nearby hotel. Three delicious meals a day are prepared with great care; drinks, tea, coffee, cakes, etc. are available at any time.

This is an international retreat. The retreat language will be English, with German and Norwegian translation if necessary. Please let us know if you need translation.

Oslo Yun Hwa Dharma Sah offers the Midsummer Retreat in cooperation with Berlin Yun Hwa Dharma Sah. 

The fee for the Retreat per day, incl. lodging and full board, is 149 €. For those who book and pay for the retreat until May 10, there will be a Early Bird discount of 10%.

Tjøme is located near two international airports, one of them very close, where we can pick you up. Please ask for our information sheet about travel and flights. For more detailed retreat information, registration, payment or any other questions, please contact us:
