Mission and Vision
The core mission of Kshanti-Les Gavatxes is to create space for mindful transformation. We run meditation retreats, host groups who are aligned to our aims, and welcome individuals seeking rest, recovery and transformation. We notice how the overly busy and anxiety ridden nature of much contemporary living obscures us from the natural flow of things and puts us out of balance.
Aligned to this core mission is our seeking to nurture a spiritual relationship with the environment. Recognising that the forest and the mountains were here before us and will outlive us, we feel how they invite us into respectful relationships acknowledging the earth’s natural wisdom.
The core vision of Kshanti-Les Gavatxes is to enable deeper, spiritual and meaningful relationships with ourselves, others and the places we find ourselves in. Just as the forest and mountainscapes of the estate are continuously changing with the seasons, so we too can find ways of flowing with and opening to the inevitable changes in life. This is at the heart of meditation practice and mindful transformation; it is a continuous process of being attentive to the present moment that holds everything.
