The Mountains Retreat - Kind Heart - 30 October to 1 November 2015

Join us for a weekend guided meditation retreat at Forest Lodge in the Craigieburn Mountain Range.
Forest Lodge is located amongst beech forest and tussock on the Mt Cheeseman Road in the Craigieburn Mountain Ranges, just 90 minutes drive from Christchurch.

The Kind Heart Retreat has particular focus on developing loving-kindness and gives practical ways in which we can use this timeless wisdom to find real meaning and lasting happiness in our busy modern lives.

Being on retreat is a special time to take ourselves away from our usual routines and busy lives. Through the teachings, contemplation and meditations we allow ourselves to develop a positive perspective. We then bring this new perspective back into our daily lives to benefit ourself and others.

The area around Forest Lodge is particularly tranquil and conducive to meditation. There will be plenty of time for walks or to simply enjoy the stillness of the mountains. Silence is observed from after the evening session until the end of the 2nd morning session, with a break from silence for lunchtime and the afternoon.

Retreat Dates Friday 30 October to Sunday 1 November. The Retreat begins with dinner on Friday at 6.30pm and finishes on Sunday at 3.45pm. Cost: $160 for the entire retreat – this includes teachings, accommodation and delicious vegetarian food. Accommodation is in light, spacious bunkrooms. Please contact the Centre to book your place, or book online now. A $25 non-refundable deposit is required with your booking.
