Our retreats will help you develop focus, manage stress and develop your mind to an optimal state, improving work, business and financial performance. People who suffer the grief and loss of a loved one will learn to cultivate inner wellbeing, assisting the healing process.
It is also for those seeking to improve their physical health, slow down the ageing process and help reduce the harmful effects of degenerative disease. We include some scientific frameworks to show exactly HOW meditation works to change your brain, moods, emotions and overall health in a positive way. We are passionate about nutrition – and aim to offer the most nutritious foods, to support your mindfulness practice & health. As many people have shared with us – our retreats can be a positively life changing experience.
Also we encourage you to bring a new friend who hasn’t tried meditation or such a focused retreat away from daily distractions – so we are offering a large discount special for 2 people booking together. Do you have a friend or family who is interested to try? It can perhaps be a birthday or ‘just because’ gift? 🙂
We are excited to share with you a new venue surrounded by nature in the Swan Valley.
Having a focused and intense 1 day practice will still allow your mental batteries to recharge and sink into some blissful peace and serenity.
The retreat day will still be held in silence to make best use of our time together and gain wisdom about ourselves and how our beliefs, thoughts and emotions are interlinked. We will also delve deeper into our practice of finding true inner freedom 🙂

Why a retreat setting?
When you live your life day to day, on auto-pilot, it’s easy to forget about the bigger picture and what your true purpose is. Getting away from the usual triggers and habits of daily life into a weekend silent retreat is a special opportunity to develop awareness and cultivation of the inner space – giving rise to more peacefulness, freedom and clarity of mind.
What to expect
You will learn new mindfulness meditation techniques & skills. The schedule includes many guided meditations to help you become centered & calm. We encourage a “path with heart” – showing how constructive emotions and intentions like loving-kindness, gratitude, compassion and joy have profound benefits – for your mind, body and relationships.
Retreats are held in silence – although some of the presentations will be interactive – where you can ask questions and engage in mindful, mutually beneficial speech. You may take walks in the beautiful, natural surrounds and enjoy peace or rest either in spacious main hall or outside. There are optional yoga classes – for all levels.
All meals are healthy, nourishing, low-GI, and vegetarian/vegan – coffee & tea are available. Our aim is to give you the most comfortable, health-ful, relaxing, enjoyable and peaceful experience possible.
The proven benefits of practicing mindfulness meditation are many – improving physical health, decelerating the aging process, enhanced ability to deal with stress, improved relationships, productivity, decision making, focus, and creativity. Please read our testimonials page to hear of all those who have experienced the benefits of our retreats.
