Take Time Off From The Daily Routine To Relax and rejuvenate with like-minded people in a beautiful setting.

MINDFULNESS Retreats In Australia 2020

If you’ve never been on a meditation retreat before, this is a perfect place to start. There will be meditation instruction for both beginners and advanced practitioners, plenty of free time and opportunities to take walks and to appreciate the beautiful scenery.

Join us for an immersion weekend of contact with nature, rest and relaxation, vegetarian food, gentle yoga practices and mindfulness meditation.

Why Coming To A Retreat?

The noise and speed of living today is driving everyone crazy. Increasingly individuals come to realise that they need to purposefully stop, paus and take time out to rest, relax and rejuvenate to not be overburdened by the constant demands of the world.

This retreat is not just about meditation, it is about connecting with nature and being in an environment that supports inner reflection. Have a break from the busy world and daily routines and learn lifelong skills:

• How to connect with the body’s self-calming system.
• How to shift attention when caught up in unhelpful thoughts and emotions.
• How to identify and quieten the voice of the inner critic.

What’s possible with regular mindfulness practice is self-regulation, giving up unhappiness and living a life of purpose as well as experiencing a more vibrant connection to life itself. Even if you are not fully convinced, you will have a relaxing weekend and learn how to connect with a deeper reality.

A weekend semi-silent* mindfulness retreat to relax, rejuvenate and have the opportunity to establish/deepen your mindfulness practice together with like-minded people in a beautiful setting.

Enjoy delicious food; breakfast lunch and dinner with options for vegan and any special diary requirements (gluten-free etc.)

ENJOY
• Guided meditations
• Yoga classes
• Comfortable accommodation
• Vegetarian food

* This is a semi-silent retreat which means at certain hours of the day we will keep talking to a minimum though there are opportunities to speak together and share.

“With Mindfulness training you are not adding to your knowledge in the
traditional sense – you are in fact removing some of the mental clutter
that is holding you back from being naturally mindful and in a state of
equilibrium”.Rita Riccola
