Mindfulness practice involves calming and focussing our attention, and sustaining a feeling connection to the reality of the present moment. This naturally begins to free us from our limited and conditioned reactions and distractions to life itself. Mindfulness promotes compassion, wellbeing and a deeper appreciation of our own true nature.

This silent retreat will consist of group sessions along with free time for retreatants to move with their own rhythm. Daily sessions include instruction in the practice of mindfulness, sitting and walking mindfulness meditations and an enquiry period. This retreat is suitable for people who are new to the practice as well as those with previous experience of mindfulness.

Cost: $550 (covers food and accommodation) plus dana/koha payment for Stephen (please offer your dana payment at end of retreat).
