Balanced Living Centre, 81a Pleasant Road, Titirangi


All Ages

This retreat is a truly Spiritual way to celebrate the inner beauty of Easter. Following a meal served on arrival - giving time for all participants to get to know each other - this retreat is held in the silence, giving ample time for meditation, thinking, relaxing and getting in touch with the inner self. Being in silence ends at breakfast on Easter Monday.

Coming on a silent retreat at the Centre is a lovely chance to get away from the material hurly-burly of the world, and for both first-time and experienced retreatants.

The retreat begins after an introduction - followed a chance to get to know each other over dinner then from evening meditation we go into the silence except for necessities.

During this time retreatants can enjoy:

- The Peace of Meditation - we have morning and evening meditation and a beautiful meditation room available at other times.
- Comfortable private rooms with garden views, twin share is available on request.
- Delicious, fresh and simple food offered buffet-style - salads, grains, soup and rolls, yoghurt, fruit and biscuits.
- You are welcome to practise gentle yoga on a private deck with garden views, mats can be provided or bring your own.
- Spiritual books, which we have on sale.
- Gentle walks from the Centre grounds (maps available).
- Rest, recuperation and inner refreshment in the Peace of the Centre.
- A comfortable lounge with a fireplace.
- A bath with salts and lavender oil.

- There is always someone on hand to help if you need anything.
