A Lifeflow retreat is the perfect antidote to looking after everyone else… You won’t need to do anything but relax and restore – fully catered with delicious healthy meals and snacks, single private rooms, guided meditation and relaxation classes. There’s time for rest and soaking up the countryside on gentle walks nearby. Think sleep-ins and quiet cuppas outside…

Take time out and reconnect with yourself again.

Each teacher has at least ten years of individual meditation training, including many months of advanced retreat practice. They have all been trained in guiding meditations and leading courses and retreats for people from all walks of life. In all Lifeflow Retreats we practise techniques that are useful in the retreat situation and can also be applied to everyday life. We aim to teach in a way that lets you link the experiences and understanding of Lifeflow Meditation throughout your life.

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.
