The idea itself I found so beautiful, China so far away and yet the possibility of connection. During the two days I felt especially connected to Fuqi Village, a feeling of closeness. And then I saw this eternal, unshakable peace that lies beneath everything and carries us. That was the predominant feeling with me, this “being carried” within the community, a feeling of security and “no more fear necessary”. I particularly liked the fact, that the ip retreat was so free, without any predetermined practice times or other “rules”. So the whole day became a big exercise, where everything was included without pressure – meditation, a little household, meditation again, a little office work at home, meditation again and especially writing again and again, which was very easy and flowing. All in all a gentle feeling of lightness and a great feeling of gratitude!
