About the retreat

A chance to reconnect, refresh and restore the mind and body

Three sessions of uplifting dharma talks and guided meditation designed to calm the mind and help you de-stress. Morning and afternoon breaks to enjoy the quiet of nature, a delicious two-course lunch (vegan) and have an opportunity to take a walk down to the river, contemplate, and get acquainted with new friends. Finishing the day with discussion and a Q&A.

During this day retreat, you will be guided in an array of deeply relaxing meditations which allow you to completely unwind and settle your body and mind in a state of relaxation, tranquillity, and clarity. The dharma talks will explore the inner causes of stress, anxiety, and provide you with tips and innovative ways of thinking to calm and de-stress at home.
