All sessions have some guidance, some prayers, and some silence for meditation. The purpose of the prayers is to prepare the mind for meditation.

Silence is maintained until 1 pm in and out of the meditation room to help stay free from distraction.

You are welcome to stay all day. Drinks will be provided.

You may bring your own food too and stay all day relaxing in the café space or going out or walks between sessions.

What is the Retreat about?

Buddha said "When you realise your own mind, you will become a buddha"

During this weekend retreat, we will gain experience of the deep inner peace and freedom that comes from understanding the conventional nature of our mind, it's clarity and it's ultimate nature of emptiness.

Through this experience we will come to enjoy a deep inner peace and profound freedom. By continuing to gain familiarity of both these truths, we will come to realize our mind, the union of appearance and emptiness, and thus attain enlightenment.

Suitable for those who have attended some classes before, but everybody welcome.
