Deep rest meditation

The association Deep rest meditation in Finland organizes silent retreats and deep rest meditation days in Finland. Our purpose is to support people to find their own path towards freedom, aliveness and connection with all living beings.

Through rest it is easier to let go of achieving and a need to control things. On our retreats and meditation days you can choose yourself, each moment, whether you are best supported by lying down, sitting, or some other meditation posture. It is important to create a space where each can find what meditation is for them. Surrendering to rest allows the body and mind to renew themselves, and also drops us into direct and non-conceptual awareness. Life beyond ideas leaves room for spacious joy and powerful shifts that make a real difference in our lives.

Deep rest meditation is inspired by Open Dharma ( Jaya Ashmore ( is an important teacher for us and has visited Finland several times.
