About Naikan Retreat

Start: At the beginning the Naikan guide gives an introduction to Naikan, explaining the setting and the Naikan method.
Naikan practice: After the introduction the Naikan practice starts. Naikan is an individual self-reflection, there are no group activities. Each participant sits on his or her Naikan place and practices Naikan quietly. The Naikan guide visits the participant for a short interview every 60 to 90 minutes. If possible there are no contacts to people outside the Retreat. Meals and drinks are provided.
End: The Naikan guide gives additional information in a final talk.

Naikan retreats under the guidance of Johanna Schuh are individual Naikan retreats, in other words, an appointment is always done one-on-one. In this way, the daily routine of the respective individual can be customized. Choose the language: English, Français, Deutsch.

Attending a one-week Naikan Retreat

Individual Naikan Retreat (no group)

I'm arriving at the Naikan center. The Naikan guide gives a warm welcome to me. Very soon we will have lunch together. Before the Naikan practice starts, we have the possibility to talk and to become acquainted. That's fine because during the Naikan Retreat I will focus on my Naikan.

After lunch the Naikan guide gives me an introduction to Naikan.

How does it work? What am I supposed to do?

I'm told that I will spend most of the time in my Naikan room. There is no specific posture required. It's recommended to sit while practicing Naikan because that's best to maintain concentration. During the Naikan Retreat we have an agreement: no books, no radio, no TV, no mobile phone, no contact with people outside of Naikan, conversation with the Naikan guide only. Well, that's what I call quietness.

Apart from that there are no regulations, only recommendations are given. It's recommended to stay at my Naikan place for most of the time because that helps to maintain concentration and it gives protection for my inner work. Of course I am allowed to leave my place at any time to get a cup of tea or to smoke a cigarette in the yard.

Tea, soft drinks and fruit are always available. The Naikan guide brings breakfast, lunch and dinner to my Naikan room. All right, I will have everything I need.

Let's start the Naikan practice.

I move into my little Naikan place. Nobody will disturb me there, the place will provide protection and calmness. Only the Naikan guide will come to see me for a short interview from time to time. The Naikan guide has told me to start my Naikan reflection focusing on my mother or the person who cared for me like a mother, just in case my mother wasn't there in my childhood.

I start with Naikan focusing on my relationship with my mother when I was 0 to 6 years old. I try to remember what I have experienced during these years of my life. I focus on my experiences with my mother asking the three questions of Naikan:

  1. What have I received from this person?
  2. What have I given, what have I done for this person?
  3. What troubles and difficulties have I caused this person?

I spend about 60 to 90 minutes at my Naikan place, quietly working with my memories and the three questions of Naikan. Then the Naikan guide comes to see me for a short interview. He or she asks me, "About what person and what period of time have you examined yourself?" I answer, "I have examined myself about the relationship with my mother when I was 0 to 6 years old." I'm asked to give a few examples of what answers I have found to the three questions of Naikan. At the end of the interview the Naikan guide says: "Thank you. Please continue Naikan focusing on your mother when you were 6 to 10 years old." No comments, no further questions, no judgements. The Naikan guide just listens and gives me support and understanding. The Naikan interview is quite short, maybe 10 or 20 minutes long.

After the Naikan interview I continue my Naikan practice on my own. Again I try to remember my mother, this time when I was 6 to 10 years old. Naikan self-reflection, Naikan interview, Naikan self-reflection, so it goes on and on ... I examine my life focusing on a specific person from our first contact until today (or until the day this person died or left my life), always looking through the lense of the three questions of Naikan. At first I focus on my mother, then my father, siblings, grandparents, partner, friends, work associates, specific topics ... It depends on my current situation and my biography which persons or topics I choose for my Naikan reflection.

At the end of the Naikan Retreat I slowly come out of silence. There is a final talk with the Naikan guide. We talk about our experiences with Naikan. And the Naikan guide gives me words of advice for Naikan in everyday life.
