Urban Meditation Retreat

Sun 30 Oct | 10am-3pm

Guided Meditation Retreat

When our distracting thoughts subside and our mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment naturally arises from within.

Retreat Description

Take some time out and enjoy a day at the Temple immersing yourself in a series of gentle guided meditations to refresh, uplift and inspire your mind. Relax and rejuvenate and go back into your life feeling calm, positive and stress-free.

The retreat will run from 10am-3pm, and will consist of 3 one-hour meditation sessions. Each session includes two guided meditations and a practical teaching that you can use to stay calm and peaceful in daily life.

The Kadampa World Peace Temple in Surry Hills is an oasis of peace on the edge of the city. During this day retreat you will have the opportunity to enjoy the peace of the Temple itself and to experience inner peace through meditation. During session breaks you can relax with a cup of tea, borrow one of our library books and find a quiet spot to read or simply enjoy the company of other retreat attendees. We’ll be serving a delicious vegetarian lunch.

Take the time to enjoy:

  • relaxing from the inside out
  • unplugging, unwinding and taking some time out for yourself
  • discovering the tranquil nature of the depths of your own mind
  • Buddha’s advice for staying calm in the midst of our busy world
  • learning practical methods for relaxing and refreshing your mind.

Everybody is welcome to attend this retreat, regardless of experience. You will receive inspiration and information on how to enjoy a pure and lasting happiness, with the strength of mind we all need to cope with life’s difficulties.

In three sessions (each one hour long) with a morning tea & a lunch break, you’ll receive a teaching on Buddha’s wisdom applied to daily life, and be guided through a series of meditations to relax and strengthen your mind. You’ll have the opportunity to ask all your questions on meditation to an experienced teacher.
