The Retreat

A silent retreat is an unequaled opportunity to become aware of the peaceful nature of your mind.

Through utilising silence, clear and accessible meditation and the support of meditating in a group, your practice will deepen tremendously.

The retreat will begin with dinner on Friday night.

From Saturday morning through to the beginning of lunch on Sunday, we will observe silence.

The retreat will conclude with lunch on Sunday.
