Our popular weekend How To Meditate retreats are ideal for anyone who would like an inspiring, enjoyable, and practical introduction to meditation. This weekend retreat will include guided meditations, teachings from a qualified meditation instructor, and advice on how to start and maintain a daily meditation practice. Our weekend retreats allow people to relax, unwind, and feel mentally and physically rejuvinated. Simple and powerful meditation techniques will be taught that help to reduce stress and anxiety, improve our mental well being, and that bring about a positive inner transformation. Each guided meditation session is broken up into several parts and includes basic settling meditation, teachings and instruction, and further guided meditation. To promote peace and stillness within, we will be observing silence every day until 1pm (lunch time).
