Beginners Meditation Retreat

Sunday 2 July

9am – 1pm

Forget about your daily life and retreat into the practise of meditation.

Retreat Description

Have you always wanted to learn how to meditate properly? Or do you know how to meditate but need a bit of practise?

In this special urban retreat you can forget about your daily life and settle into the practise of meditation. You will learn simple but effective meditation techniques that you can easily integrate into your daily life and you will gain a taste of the inner peace that only meditation can give you.

Retreat Format

Over three sessions (both one hour long), you’ll be guided through the three meditations on the Clear Mind meditation CDs. You’ll have the opportunity to have your questions answered by a Buddhist teacher with many years of meditation experience.  Delicious home-made snacks will be served in the breaks to give you time to relax and absorb the peaceful surroundings. Everyone is welcome.
