members retreats summer

Summer retreat at Tara Hills

Teachers in residence
Ann Calvert, Gretta Koch, Ben Dollman

Thursday 3 January – Monday 7 January 2019

This retreat format will allow flexibility for members who wish to stay on retreat this summer and allows time for you to develop your own retreat and meditation practice. You will be able to nominate which day you start and end, as long as it is somewhere between Thurs 3 Jan and Mon 7 Jan and that you stay for at least two nights.

3 x teacher led sessions are included per day (Stretch & Breathe, Deep Relaxation, guided meditation session).

It is expected that anyone attending these retreats is able to be self guided in their meditation exercises. A Lifeflow teacher will be present and available for interviews so you can check up on how your retreat work is going.

Optional massage

We are offering 45 minute massage sessions on the Saturday morning of the retreat, 5 January.  Chris Allen of Chris Allen Therapies for Wellbeing will be providing the 45 minute massage sessions ($80 per session). Chris has extensive experience in remedial massage and is also a qualified Bowen Therapist. Choose massage, Bowen or a combination of the two. If preferred both can be effectively done through clothing. Please email info@ when you have booked in to the retreat if you would like a massage (payable on the day with cash or credit card).

Easter long weekend retreat at Kurlana

The Fulfilment of the Path – the Bliss of Inner Marriage
Graham Williams et al

1 pm Friday 19 April – 2 pm Monday 22 April

About this retreat

Like all paths, the path of Integration has a beginning, middle and end. For most people it starts with a life experience which doesn’t fit their expectations and can give them a shock. This can be a little moment of insight and insight is where the path begins – seeing reality without our preconceptions. It continues with ongoing meditation practice and is fulfilled in the union of mind and body.

This year we will explore the whole path from its beginning to its fulfillment in the experience of Inner Marriage. This is the union of the infinite nature of our minds with the finite bliss of our bodies

Part 1 of the retreat is over this weekend, part 2 will be over the October long weekend.
