In many traditions silence is the mystery of renewal and opportunity to start new things. This theme leads our retreat and we will use the wonderfull knowledge and instruments of Sjamanism and Zen Buddhismt together, because they have similarities. Andres King Cobos from Mexico (Lakota tradition), is official sundanser of Mexico. He takes us from the silence of Zen into the Lakota tradition by storytelling from " The book of the People Popol Vuh", the secret book of the ancient Maya culture. This is the preparing of our Sweatlodge Ceremony (Temazcal) and optional the Visionquest.
