The world is a noisy place. There’s outer noise – talking, traffic, TV – and inner noise: distractions, social media, to-do lists and nagging thoughts. Silent retreats aim to quiet this noise so you can reset and recharge.

On this five day silent retreat, you can enjoy a digital detox, find beauty in your surroundings, and stay connected to the meditative experience. Our beautiful temple in the Dandenong Ranges is the perfect place to take a break from the noisy world and emerge better equipped to handle its stresses and stimulation.
