“What could possibly be said in this moment that could improve upon silence” Traditional Buddhist saying

Many of us are drawn to meditation practice because of a deep yearning to calm our minds, ease our emotions, and soothe our sometimes ailing bodies (and help others do the same). And yet, we often struggle to make time for ourselves to sit and meditate at home, even for a few minutes. When we do, we sometimes find ourselves reacting to our busy minds, pulled to finish things or start things, reacting to past regrets with guilt, anger or shame; or become distracted with fears and anxieties about the future. This retreat allows you to be in silence, quiet your mind, soften your heart, and develop profound clarity and depth of insight.

What is the In-Depth Mindfulness Retreat?

This silent, teacher-led retreat gives you the rare opportunity to immerse yourself in dedicated meditation practice and to really experience the beauty, nourishment and insight of mindfulness. The retreat follows the traditional schedule of sitting and walking meditations for exploring four foundations of mindfulness and loving kindness. You will be supported in the steady development of equanimity and presence through guided meditations, talks, question-and-answer periods, practice, and interviews with the teacher. In addition to traditional meditation teaching, you will have access to some of the most powerfully synthesised concepts and practices across neuroscience, the wisdom traditions, clinical practice and mindfulness.

Who is this for?

The In-Depth Mindfulness Retreat is for people want to really experience the beauty, nourishment and insight of mindfulness. It is aimed at those with some prior meditation experience, and those who are new to meditation and prefer an intensive retreat introduction. You do need to be emotionally steady enough to be immersed in silence, and meditation, for a few days.

People who attend typically:

  1. are ready to immerse themselves in the practice, and learn how to relate and respond skillfully with the challenges of leadings others.
  2. have done some training, like the MBCT, or attended other retreats like vipassana, or calm abiding, and want to continue developing their own awareness, insight, presence, courage and stability of mind.
  3. want to feel the deep physical and mental rejuvenation and replenishment of being in silence, being led through guided meditations, staying in a beautiful resort and recharging your batteries.
