Give yourself a peaceful and inspiring start to 2017 with a meditation retreat at Otaki Gorge on the Kapiti Coast.

In this special retreat, Resident Teacher Kelsang Shechog will guide a series of beautiful meditations to uplift our mind, improve our good heart, and ripen our potential for a life of great happiness, meaning and joy. This retreat is based on a famous Buddhist poem Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life written by the 8th-century meditation master Shantideva and translated by acclaimed modern master Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.

It provides illuminating insight into how we can live a truly happy and meaningful life in the middle of our busy modern world. This retreat is suitable for everyone regardless of your level of meditation experience.

Between retreat sessions, there are plenty of opportunities to relax and unwind in the lush gardens and on the various nature walks in the forest. Come and enjoy inner peace in a beautiful part of the world.
