Mindfulness Meditation Retreat with Mana ~ 5 days

09/10/2017 – 13/10/2017 all-day


 Stay for 5 days if you can, minimum 3 days

Learn Mindfulness Meditation or take your practice deeper.

Find your own “Path with Heart” – integrity, connection, learning to listen to your own heart wisdom.

Explore classic mindfulness teachings of the Buddha and Vipassana meditation methods in ways that are relevant and useful in contemporary western lifestyles.

Experience clearer ways of living with openness and clarity. Learn how to meet challenges, inviting integration & healing. Meditation retreat is a wonderful opportunity to open to the deeper currents in your own life, what is most truly alive in you.

Discover practical ways in which meditation can help you live more fully at work, in relationships – with connection, creativity, engagement and freedom.

We meet usually twice a day for classes with practical exercises and plenty of time for your questions. The rest of the day is for you to put into practice what we have discussed in class, in line with your own energy levels and motivation. We encourage simplicity and some commitment to your practice, but just how you set about your daily timetable is very much up to you. Over time, we have found the skills you will develop in in this approach will help you integrate depth meditation work into the rest of your life.


Open Mind Centre is a supportive, beautiful environment by the river. We have good vegetarian food, mountain views and natural hot spring water baths. You we welcome to arrive a day or more before your retreat begins to enjoy some quiet time in nature, and maybe prepare yourself for your retreat.

We suggest you stay for the full 5 days. Minimum registration 3 days. You are welcome to stay for a longer retreat after the scheduled retreat time.

If you have the time, we recommend you come a day or more earlier to settle in and prepare for your retreat. Please book your accommodation.

Starts 10am.
