When our distracting thoughts subside and our mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment naturally arises from within. With this inner peace we free ourself from stress, anxiety, mental pain and even tiredness.
Immerse yourself in silent guided meditation in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges. Our short silent retreats are the perfect escape from busy daily life and the best way to rest and rejuvenate.
Your retreat guide is senior Buddhist Monk, Gen Kelsang Dornying, who will take you though simple instructions and meditations for enjoying real happiness. There’s also plenty of opportunity to simply enjoy the silence.
