Meditation Retreats

“meditation

(See also: Buddhism and mindfulness.)

Meditation is the cultivation of wholesome qualities of mind. It has as many forms as it does practitioners, yet it always involves liberation from suffering. In the West, we are seeing a surge of scientific research on mindfulness as an effective antidote for mental health issues such as depression and anxiety.

Meditation retreats are for anyone. In a sense, it doesn’t matter whether you’re an absolute beginner or an experienced retreat-goer. The present moment waits for everyone—and it’s always fresh. As Osho says, “In meditation, once you are gone in, you are gone in.”

Whether you’re looking for vipassana, zazen, Transcendental Meditation, silent meditation, or just some beginner meditation classes, there are meditation retreat centres in your area (and in exotic locales) that should have just the meditation retreat that you are looking for.
