taking & giving

Within the stillness of retreat, we are able to step back from the busyness of our daily life and focus on what is truly meaningful. This weekend beginner-friendly meditation retreat will provide a chance to step away from the noise of busy daily life and refresh your mind through meditation.

Spend the weekend learning simple, but profound meditations on the natural clarity of your own mind and cultivating inner peace.

Enjoy periods of silence and guided meditation to deepen your experience of peace and tap into the tranquillity of a still mind, from which we can cultivate our good qualities of love, compassion and wisdom to be of benefit to others in our life. As our mind begins to settle we experience deeper and deeper levels of concentration and peace. Our heart mixes with the beauty of Kadam Dharma and our life is changed forever. 

Between retreat sessions take time to relax and carry your experience of peace in the following ways:
  • enjoy the tranquility of the farm 
  • take a walk along the Lions River 
  • connect with like-minded people
  • nourish yourself with freshly prepared organic vegetarian meals
  • explore our bookshop and library

On Saturday evening, we will enjoy chanted prayers, called Liberation from Sorrow – attendance is optional

Everyone is welcome and no experience is necessary.
