News dated 2018, March 8, from
Naikan Center Bavarian Forest

Slowly spring is approaching and we long for warmth and soothing green. The days are getting longer again, the desire for nature, walks, scents and birdsong increases. The best time to practice Naikan - spring cleaning for mind and soul.

And we are looking forward to May when Linda Anderson Krech and Gregg Krech from the ToDoInstitute in Vermont will conduct their certification program here.

Linda and Gregg first have been at the Naikan Center as key-speakers at the Naikan Congress in 2016 and we are very happy, that we could convince them to do their program here.

Now, for the first time their unique program will be helt in Europe - a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
