Imagine Living Without Stress—a life free from worry and tension and the many daily problems these negative minds create.

On this weekend meditation retreat we will look at how Buddhist meditation can help us recognise what stress is, and how we can reduce the stress we have in our life and live in a more relaxed, peaceful and positive way.

Weekend meditation retreats provide a rare opportunity to step away from the busyness of your life, immerse yourself in the natural environment and refresh your mind through meditation. The simple guided meditations provide an excellent introduction to meditation as well as a chance to improve our meditation skills. By learning to use these techniques in our daily life we can achieve inner peace and contentment all the time.

Treat yourself to this relaxing and meaningful break in the beautiful Otaki Gorge. This retreat is suitable for everyone.

The course begins with supper at 6:30pm on the Friday night and finishes with lunch on Sunday. There are plenty of opportunities to relax and unwind in the beautiful gardens and various nature walks in the forest.

This retreat is catered with delicious vegetarian food, and there is a range of accommodation options. All you need to do is to relax and enjoy yourself.

Booking is essential—please book early to ensure a place.

Our guided retreat will be taught by Buddhist nun Kelsang Shechog, the Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Centre Wellington. Shechog has spent many years developing Kadampa Meditation Centres where she has inspired many people through her kindness and loving example. Shechog is much loved for her gentle manner, inner strength and clear, skillful teachings.

The retreat will be held just an hour out of Wellington at the gorgeous Waihoanga Centre, 32 Waihoanga Road, Otaki.

*Limited availability.
