Inspired by many paths, buddhist teachings are our main influence, especially the Forest tradition of Ajahn Chah. Rooted as we are in this, we delight in participation from all faiths and spiritual leanings.
We offer group, solitary, chanting and walking retreats.
We also explore bringing meditation into practical life.
Retreats are offered in English or in French with translation as needed.
Wild Forces : "There are beautiful wild forces within us. Let them turn the mills inside and fill sacks, that feed even heaven."
St Francis of Assisi ( trans.D.Landinsky)
ETHOS & Eco-awareness
We are a small retreat place and like to keep our ways of living simple, connected with each other and with nature. Participation and a sense of flowing community, care and sustainability are some of what the above can nourish.
Connecting inner meditation and living consciously outwardly is what we aspire to!
At Ekuthuleni we actually rely on dana (donations), a heart of generosity to stay open…there’s a direct link between our openness in what we can offer from Ekuthuleni, the openings people can have here and a flow of generosity which keeps it all rolling!
We are also an alcohol and intoxicants free place, we keep the 5 buddhist precepts and ask friends and retreatants to do the same during your stay
Welcome to Ekuthuleni
A rustic retreat place in the south of France.
Ekuthuleni means a cleared, warm quality of quietness, of peace.
