Silent Long Weekend Retreat Overview
**October 2024 retreat bookings open**
Adele runs a yearly 3 night (mostly) silent retreat which is a lovely opportunity to pause, rest and care for the mind, body and heart. Join us for a mindful long weekend of meditation, movement, nature, wonderful vegetarian food and connection. Suitable for anyone who has done at least a one day silent retreat and wishing to deepen his or her mindfulness practice. The focus will be on mind-body connection, quieting the mind and opening the heart.
There will be silent periods of lying, sitting and walking meditation as well as some mindful movement. Daily talks, meditation instructions, guided still and moving meditations and kindness and compassion will be on offer.
Adele teaches in a trauma-sensitive mindfulness framework… and sometimes silent meditation is not appropriate if you have a background of trauma. Do be in touch if you want to discuss your suitability for the retreat with Adele.
The Brahma Kumaris Centre for Spiritual Learning The Illawarra is a twelve-acre property offering wonderful meditation facilities including a balance of landscaped gardens, open grassed areas and natural bushland. Comfortable single bedrooms with ensuite, featuring timber and sandstone.
All food prepared and served at the retreat centre is pure vegetarian.
