Mindfulness workshops and retreats

Mindfulness workshops are a wonderful way to deepen knowledge and experience of a particular area you are interested in. Enrol today to be nourished and informed. 

Mindfulness meditation retreats offer an opportunity to step outside of our regular demands and immerse ourselves in “non-doing” to restore and renew our energy and also to explore and discover new insights and a new relationship with things as they are. This precious time can bring clarity about our relationships, our values and our projects so we can come back to our lives with new inspiration and vigour. 

Some feedback from past retreatants

"I wish I could go every month, working in "the helping professions" I found it amazing to be silent, to not have to hear others, to be still with my thoughts, to BE not do. A great balance - the times where we got to work with the leaders and talk was very constructive use of "talk time". Meditation practices were all able to be modified - suits experienced and inexperienced, flexibly and non-flexible!!!!!

Such a GREAT recharge - don't miss it."

"I did the MBSR course a couple of years ago and since then have attended the quarterly silent days and a retreat in Healesville.I cannot speak highly enough of the positive affect that these sessions have had on me. I believe my meditation is a major contributor in me having my little the boy Oscar, just 3 months ago. (He is now the main reason that I can't get to any retreats at the moment but I wouldn't change anything).

I still think of the Healesville experience often and the main thing I remember is that I felt as though I had had a holiday from the rest of the world. How special and precious it is to have all that time just with myself and with my mind and my body with no interference from daily challenges. It was invigorating and I felt so lucky to have that time but also so glad that I had given myself that gift- the gift of 'just me' time. Liberating, energising and comforting are other words that come to mind.

Can't wait for the time when I feel ready to leave Oscar and return to these retreats. For now, he's just too cute."
