Personal Retreats offer an opportunity to enjoy the peace and ambiance of Dharma Gaia outside of formal retreat times. You can ask for guidance in formulating your retreat time or choose a format that best suits your needs. Whether that includes joining the regular sessions of sitting, walking, yoga or teachings, formulating your own schedule of practice, or simply allowing yourself time to rest, read , write and enjoy the beauty and peace of Dharma Gaia. We are very happy to receive people from all walks of life, ethnic traditions and religions to simply be here to rest, rejuvenate and experience the deep peace and joy of the Mindfulness Practice Centre.
We offer sitting/walking meditation every morning, a Public Meditation evening weekly on Wednesday evenings, and various other evening practices according to the needs and current community/guests. In between the periods of formal retreats and teachings, there is the deepening that occurs from the practices and experiences of simply ‘Being’ here.
You can join the meditation practices offered and also use the Dharma Nectar Meditation room for your own contemplative practices.
In the local community other practices such as massage and various body/mind therapies are also available.
