Rarely do we put the time aside to really take care of ourselves. Self care is more than bubble baths or time spent outdoors. To truly take care of ourself we need to take care of our mind. It’s time to prioritise mental health and wellness.

Give yourself the luxury of a retreat. Retreats are the perfect opportunity to enjoy the stillness and peace that meditation brings. When the turbulence of distracting thoughts subsides and the mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment naturally arises from within.

Spend a few days in the tranquil environment of the Dandenong Ranges and be transported to a state of mental peace through meditating and receiving spiritual instructions from Senior Buddhist Monk Gen Kelsang Dornying. Relax, rejuvenate and recharge your mind.
