Doing Your Own Thing: Self Retreats

Doing Your Own Thing: Rejuvenate on Self Retreats

A Self Retreat is unstructured: one does as much (or as little) reading, listening to recorded talks, walking, meditation or resting as one chooses. Enjoy walks and bird watching in 300 acres of beautiful rolling hills, parklands, indigenous valleys and forests. Meditate, learn chi kung and yoga, savour our delicious vegetarian food, browse our well-stocked library and listen to recorded talks by eminent visiting teachers. Visit the stupa and the raked Zen sand gardens; walk the labyrinth; reflect on the 8  trees associated with the Buddha’s life, enlightenment and death in the beautiful Buddha Boma; spend solitary time in our deer forest.

Self Retreats are an ideal opportunity to be in a gentle, sympathetic space where one can be still and get in touch with oneself and reflect on the things that crowd one’s life.  Self Retreats, Group or Corporate Events are available on weekdays – between Conducted Retreats.
