About this retreat

This retreat theme continues from the Easter long weekend.

The Kurlana retreats this year will give the opportunity to study in detail and also experience the process of transition, both in your daily life and in your inner life. Transition is such an important part of our lives that it occupies a major place in the meditation tradition. One of the six yogas in the Tibetan tradition is dedicated to this topic.

Every part of our lives moves in cycles – physically, emotionally and mentally. And what you can discover through the knowledge and experience of meditation, is that these cycles all have a clear, definite pattern. The retreat provides the tools to skilfully manage all the changes we experience in our lives, from making decisions to understanding the big cycles we live through; the stages of our lives, our relationships, our work, and the communities and environment in which we live.

All of our own personal decisions rest on our values, and so we will also be discussing their importance, and how to balance the need to control our lives and the need to love and be open to everyone and everything around us.
