Dark night of the soul
7 pm Friday 26 June – 2 pm Sunday 28 June
Tara Hills Retreat Centre
Has the world you knew changed and nothing seems to make sense like it used to?
Or has the meaning in your life, achievements, what’s important to you and your life direction collapsed for some reason? Welcome to the dark night of the soul.
In this retreat you will discover that you aren’t alone in the experience and how meditation can help to make sense of what you are feeling and open you to valuable insights.
You will be provided with the tools from the meditation tradition that can help to build greater flexibility and resilience in your daily life. Learn to create a foundation of strength for your mind and emotions, training yourself to bounce back more quickly through the many challenges of this period of life.
And relax … you will be looked after and everything will be taken care of including delicious vegetarian meals, a beautiful peaceful spot in nature, comfortable accommodation and plenty of space and time to yourself.

A simply wonderful experience like nothing I have encountered before. It is amazing what insight one can get from stillness and silence.
