Refresh and restore

 at Tara Hills

And retreat sub sub heading in here

Imagine yourself in a beautiful location in the countryside where you can breathe deeply, and completely rejuvenate with guided meditations, gentle yoga, and nourishing food.

This restorative retreat offers more than a holiday – it is a rare opportunity to recharge by allowing you to rest deeply and quieten your mind with meditation.

Developing core meditation skills enables you to learn to trust your body and, by keeping the mind and body together, open to the natural bliss and joy of being in touch with your senses.

This retreat is a fantastic option for people who are fairly new to meditation, but will also provide a deeper experience for more experienced meditators. It’s also the last chance for a retreat at Tara Hills before Christmas – these ones always sell out so be quick!

During this weekend you’ll also enjoy nourishing vegetarian food – all meals are included, along with morning and afternoon tea. Plus, there is time for walks and generally unwinding in a beautiful country setting, along with comfortable private accommodation.

Many thanks, Ben. I love the way you covered the Big Picture and set amazing, comprehensive details in your teaching. I loved the interactions of the group.

No prior meditation, yoga or retreat experience is required to attend this retreat. You will be guided by a team of experienced teachers who can help answer any questions that may arise during the retreat. All meditation sessions are guided and there is at least one theory class each day to support the understanding of the practical sessions.

Each day of the retreat provides a good balance between classes, time on your own, guided meditation sessions and plenty of time to enjoy the countryside. You can find out much more on our  Retreat FAQ page.

Lifeflow retreat practice gives you time to rest, to restore your energies and the opportunity to let go of deadlines and busyness. You can learn to nurture yourself, restore a sense of balance and well-being, and open up to nature. See our Retreat FAQ page for more.
