About This Event

Is meditation meant for me? Can I calm my busy mind and experience stillness? Can I make time for meditation? Have these questions come up for you?

Often, we feel there is too much going on in our lives and it’s not possible for our minds to slow down. Truthfully, anyone can meditate. All we need is the right technique and the right guidance to kick start our practice. The busier our minds are, the more important it is for us to meditate. Just like our bodies need rest after a full work day; our minds experience the same fatigue, making it important to stop and re-energize our minds.

The Meditation Retreat offers a personalized practice taught by experienced meditation teachers. Receive one-on-one guidance to allow you to meditate effortlessly anytime and anywhere. You will receive the training you need to launch yourself confidently into a personal practice for life.

Structured Retreat

You will start the retreat by receiving personal instruction and then being guided into meditation. You will receive timeless wisdom about the nature of the mind, thoughts and the finer layers of consciousness. You will have enough time to meditate on your own and ask questions. Instructors are available for support during and after the retreat. Time to unwind, relax and reflect is infused into the retreat schedule. During this time, our designated Ayurveda Centre is available for optional treatments.

But joy is never tomorrow; it is always now. - Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
