Holiday for the mind – relaxing weekend retreat – Enjoy a weekend of meditations and practical advice. During the weekend we will learn and practice meditations that bring peace, joy and harmony to our life. Treat yourself to a real break – both physically and mentally and return home feeling refreshed and relaxed.

Retreat teacher – this relaxing weekend will be taught by our Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Nyingpo

What to expect on this retreat – On retreat, we take ourselves out of our normal environment and immerse ourselves in peace and quiet. We forget our daily lives, our work and all our stresses. During the weekend we meditate, listen to teachings, relax, sit in the garden, walk on the beach, read, drink coffee, eat cake, sleep, chat and enjoy a true break from the busyness of our life.

This relaxing weekend is an informal balance of meditations, practical teachings and time to rest and relax. It is an opportunity for those new to meditation to learn how to find inner peace and to cope with our busy everyday lives. And a chance for those with more experience to deepen their experience of meditation and Buddha’s teachings.

We meet new friends, catch up with old friends, chat together, read in the beautiful gardens or just sit quietly and contemplate.

Our teacher, Gen Nyingpo, is a very sincere practitioner and a down to earth, warm and inspiring teacher. She has been practising and teaching meditation for nearly 25 years and loves to guide us all on our wonderful Brighton retreat.

So, come along and enjoy a holiday for your mind with this relaxing weekend of meditations and practical advice. We will learn and practice meditations that bring peace, joy and harmony to our life. Treat yourself to a real break – both physically and mentally and return home feeling refreshed and relaxed.
