Event Details

This 3-night meditation retreat allows practitioners to settle into stillness and quiet. The retreat becomes a supportive environment to go deeper into meditation than is typically possible with the busyness and complexities of daily life. The beautiful, serene environment allows space for cultivating awareness and equanimity and for exploring the mind.

The goal of the retreat is to provide an environment where all students can receive the required support and instructions to help them move forward in their practice.

This is a student-centred retreat, which means that there is no set curriculum to follow but rather each student will continue their own meditation practice and all talks and interviews will be responsive to students’ needs and interests. Instructions on meditation techniques will be provided as required and all levels of experience are welcome. If you are unsure about suitability you can speak with the teacher prior to the retreat.

Teacher: Kynan Tan is a meditation teacher who takes a collaborative approach to helping students achieve their meditation goals. He draws upon a number of different modern and traditional techniques of contemplative and introspective practice. He is a longtime practitioner of the stages of śamatha-vipassanā (as presented in the book The Mind Illuminated), Rob Burbea’s insight meditation techniques, nondual awareness, and brahmavihārā practices (mettā, compassion, empathetic joy, and equanimity).

Cost: $335–$450, covering accommodation and all vegan meals. Early bird prices are available until 20 December. As in the Buddhist tradition, there will be an opportunity to offer the teacher a donation (dāna or generosity) after the retreat.
