Joyous and Contemplative 5 day Retreat 


Do you long for a quieter more deeply connected Christmas Season? Here is an opportunity to rest into the Dharma Gaia Community and the practice of true presence. To touch the ultimate, timeless dimension of spirituality beyond the boundaries of separate beliefs and ideologies.

Our practice is very simple and profound - to come home to ourselves, to the depth of being alive, and for this sacred period, to free ourselves from the consumerism and the banal that often dulls the true beauty and essence of holidays.

The schedule will be spacious. We come together in the spirit of simplicity, harmony, peace and ease, sustained with fresh, light and nourishing meals, the grace of the natural environment, periods of deep silence, teachings on true presence, community and personal discovery. These are our Christmas Presents. This retreat is for anyone regardless of spiritual tradition or belief, who desires a place to “Be” for Christmas which is intimate, quiet and encourages inner peace and unfolding.

Sister Shalom is returning to Dharma Gaia to support this special retreat. We have limited places so please confirm bookings early to avoid disappointment.
