They have all been trained in guiding meditations and leading courses and retreats for people from all walks of life.

We aim to teach in a way that lets you link the experiences and understanding of Lifeflow Meditation throughout your life.

Tara Hills Retreat Centre
Tara Hills is the principal retreat centre for the Lifeflow Meditation Centre. It is set amongst the rolling hills, large gum trees and abundant bird life of peaceful Native Valley. It provides an ideal space for retreats: here you can open your senses to brilliant night sky, fresh air and expansive views that can be enjoyed from the property. It's easy to get to, yet it provides the seclusion of being in a quiet corner of the countryside. It's about a 45 minute drive from Adelaide, just past Nairne in the Adelaide Hills. Go to the Tara Hills Retreat Centre page for more.
What others have said about our retreats
The food was fresh, healthy and delicious.
I feel very rejuvenated and kind of ‘slow’ on the inside – I highly recommend it.
My weekend retreat at Tara Hills will have to rate as one of the best breaks I have ever had ... nothing that life throws at me at present can wipe away the smile on my face. Thank you, can’t wait to come back.
