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.

Whether you are working too hard, dealing with stress, or simply need some time to pause from the pressures of everyday life, this soothing day retreat will help you on your way to developing exceptional mental health and wellbeing and experience the genuine wellbeing that comes from having a wonderfully balanced and healthy mind.

You’ll leave feeling refreshed, nourished, stress-free and ready for the weeks ahead – with new tools to reduce your daily stress and anxiety and to make you a more positive and peaceful person.

About The Venue

Enjoy the tranquillity of the Welsh countryside

Described as a “haven for personal healing, growth & discovery“, the beautiful Ascension in the Fields Retreat Centre is nestled in the Cambrian Mountains with beautiful views and 31 acres of natural woodland. The centre is teeming with natural wildlife – there are several ponds and an idyllic river to wander around, and secluded places for reflection and contemplation. This inspiring place is the ideal backdrop for our day retreats and has proven to be a popular choice with our retreat guests.

From the moment I arrived I was not alone. I became part of a family of the best and most inspirational people I’ve ever met in my life. I experienced a moment of pure happiness. I learnt an immense amount to deepen my practise and have come home with heaps of tools to use in everyday life to calm my stresses and anxieties. David and Manu of Samadhi are 2 of the kindest most humble humans among us and I can’t thank you enough for this life changing experience. It’s never too late to face the scaries in our lives🧡

What an amazing experience! I attended a meditation and yoga weekend retreat with Samadhi in Oxfordshire and everything was perfect. The many sessions (meditation, yoga and talks) were incredibly interesting and helpful. There was a very positive vibe within the group, the food was outstanding and the place was so beautiful and relaxing. It is a wonderful and rare occasion to get to spend some time exploring the mind with a group of kind-hearted people as well as taking the time to reconnect with your own self. Everything was very well organised, I have learned a lot over the 3 days and I think the positive effect of the retreat will have a long lasting impact. I highly recommend this organisation and their retreats to anyone and hope I will be able to attend another of their retreat. Thank you.
