In the fast pace of our work and personal lives our attention is easily scattered and our mind cluttered with endless distractions. Training in mindfulness gives us the power to overcome disturbing thoughts and to stay focused on what brings peace of mind.

This retreat is suitable for everyone, and provides an excellent introduction to meditation as well as an opportunity to improve our meditation skills. Taught by Buddhist nun Kelsang Shechog, the Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Centre Wellington, this retreat offers a unique opportunity to experience stillness within the tranquil setting of Otaki Gorge and the Waihoanga Retreat Centre.

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.

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

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

Cost & Booking:
Retreat fees include all retreat meditation sessions, two nights accommodation, linen and all vegetarian meals. Please note camping does not include linen. All prices are per person.
