Peaceful Mind Mountains Retreat Friday 23 March to Sunday 25 March 2018.

The Retreat begins with dinner on Friday at 6:30pm and finishes on Sunday at 3:45pm.

Join us for a weekend guided meditation retreat at Forest Lodge in the Craigieburn Mountain Range. Forest Lodge is located amongst beech forest and tussock on the Mt Cheeseman Road in the Craigieburn Mountain Ranges, just 90 minutes drive from Christchurch.

On this retreat we will focus on meditations to still the mental busyness of our mind. Then a deep happiness and contentment will naturally arise from within. We can then bring this new perspective back into our daily lives to benefit both ourself and others.

Being on retreat is a special time to take ourselves away from our usual routines and busy lives. Through the teachings, contemplation and meditations we allow ourselves to develop a positive perspective. We then bring this new perspective back into our daily lives to benefit yourself and others.

The area around Forest Lodge is particularly tranquil and conducive to meditation. There will be plenty of time for walks or to simply enjoy the stillness of the mountains. Silence is observed from after the evening session until the end of the 2nd-morning session, with a break from silence for lunchtime and the afternoon.

Cost is $205 for the entire retreat – this includes teachings, accommodation and delicious vegetarian food. Accommodation is in light, spacious bunkrooms.
