Samadhi (Novel Meditation Area)
A new area at Boom, dedicated to the art of meditation
We are thrilled to kick off a new area at Boom dedicated to one of the most powerful and beautiful practices for spiritual and personal development: meditation. Named Samadhi, the Sanskrit word, that John Daido Loori Roshi, a Zen teacher, described as being, "a state of consciousness that lies beyond waking, dreaming, or deep sleep. It's a slowing down of our mental activity through single-pointed concentration."
In deepest samadhi, absorption is so complete that all sense of "self" disappears, subject and object are completely absorbed into each other.
Located on the far-end side of the Being Fields, and overlooking the lake, the Samadhi is a shaded space that provides a stunning view to its visitors. Sessions of different kinds of meditaion take place during the festival's silence hours (18h-21h).
We invite you to connect deeper with yourself, turn your senses inward and discover the beautiness that lies within. May this space contribute to all beings be happy.
Please note: the program is continuously updated as we journey closer towards the festival dates.
