Retreat Description

With a new year upon us it’s good to take some time out to reflect on what will make 2023 a truly great year for us. We can put the craziness of the last few years behind and focus on ways of thinking that will only bring happiness and joy.

At this weekend retreat our Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Lhachog will guide us in meditations that will uplift our mind and inspire us to think in ways that will only produce happiness.

This guided retreat is not catered. You are invited to explore the local cafes during the breaks or if you prefer to bring your own lunch, stay at the centre and enjoy some quiet time away from the hustle.
