Meditation Retreats for beginners* and experienced meditators

Would you like to learn meditation? Have you recently learned to meditate and are trying to establish a meditation practice? Or have you been meditating for years? We have retreats are for relative beginners with little or no knowledge of meditation, as well as for seasoned practitioners. They offer a chance to practice in supportive conditions, away from the stress and concerns of everyday life, in the company of like-minded people. Book online or contact us on 02 9519 0440 for more information or to book for a retreat.

Please let us know if you are currently experiencing any kind of ill-health or disability we need to be aware of, to ensure you are appropriately supported in our classes and/or on retreat. It may not be suitable for you to attend in certain circumstances, such as if you require medical or psychiatric supervision.
