  • About This Event

    Our popular How To Meditate day retreats are ideal for anyone who would like an inspiring, enjoyable, and practical introduction to meditation. This retreat will include guided meditations, teachings from a qualified meditation instructor, and advice on how to start and maintain a daily meditation practice. Our day retreats allow people to relax, unwind, and feel mentally and physically rejuvenated. 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 until 12:30pm (lunchtime).
