On this relaxing, gentle, silent day Retreat we will be learning how to use meditation on our minds (known as Mahamudra meditation) to experience greater peace, clarity, and well-being. Derived from the Buddhist Mahamudra tradition, the meditations on this retreat will lead us on a voyage of exploring our minds through which we can discover our own inner potential for lasting peace and happiness.
The retreat is open to everyone of all levels of experience and will be held at the beautiful Foxwood House, an elegant boutique hotel, with lush gardens in Houghton, Johannesburg. It is a haven of tranquillity and old-world charm and conducive to quiet contemplation and restoring of energy.
