Naikan is a practice of self-reflection originally developed in Japan. Most people are born, live and die without ever taking the time to truly reflect on how they have lived their lives. In our busy lives it is hard to find time for serious, quiet reflection.
But to fail to look closely at the reality of our lives is to ignore what Reality can teach us. This retreat provides an unusual opportunity to step back and examine your life. This is gold for the soul. The basic structure of Naikan involves reflecting on our relationship with others using the following three questions: What Have I received from this person?
What Have I given to this person? Even though the course of a single day may bring innumerable blessings to us, the few moments of genuine gratitude we experience is often overshadowed by our complaints, disappointments, sorrow and frustration.
We may not truly appreciate what we have until it is gone. And having lost the opportunity to be grateful, we simply find a new opportunity to be disappointed. Gratitude requires attention and reflection.
During this week of self-reflection you have a chance to examine the details of all the care and support you have received throughout your entire life.
Many people are struck by how much they have taken for granted. And too often we miss what is being done for us because our attention is caught up in feelings of selfishness, resentment or self-pity. Suppose you went away for one week to a small cottage in the mountains.
All your needs are provided for.
