NeuroSystemics Dharma

NeuroSystemics is an integrative methodology building resiliency and empowerment internally and in relationships. The Dharma program focuses specifically on building a compassionate community and grounding one’s attention and awareness in highly regulated nervous system states to experience ease, calm and joy. These conditions offer deep possibilities of insight and wisdom to arise.

Retreat Description

We all have difficult moments, especially in times of crisis like with the earthquakes in Turkey, the war in Ukraine, and other challenges present in the world. How can we learn to be ok with these difficult conditions? How can we have more moments of solace, calm and even access joy in the midst of great challenge?

Meditation can help.

Practicing meditation in a community can help.

Holding grief, loss, anxiety with compassion and equanimity can help.

In this retreat we will focus on these meditative qualities of:

  • Equanimity: holding everything present in our experience with a balanced mind
  • Compassion: bringing care to our heartaches and suffering



The retreat starts on Friday April 28th at 6pm CEST for a welcoming and presentation of the coordination elements of the retreat, until Sunday April 30th 1pm CEST


 We expect that you come to all sessions – continuity of attendance and commtiment to the retreat will help you go deeper. If however, your life circumstances do not allow to come for every session, you may still attend.


Small group practices

As part of our nervous system-informed framework, we will explore how we can support one another in meditation, which we call social meditation. You will be invited to join a small group of practitioners with a Soma (Somatic facilitator) and experience silent and communication practices to deepen your relationship with yourself and others.



Private “Somatic Regulation” sessions

One of the unique features and contributions of NeuroSystemics to meditation and dharma practice, is to combine nervous system science with Buddhist practices. As part of this retreat you will have the opportunity to receive a 20-30 minute session with a trained professional supporting you to

  • better regulate your nervous system
  • strengthen your capacity to be in the here-and-now
  • ground your awareness further in your experience and your body with ease, gentleness & pleasure
