Young Buddhists Retreat: Mindfulness and the Path to Freedom.
We are excited to be hosting our first retreat for young people, set in the beautiful Riverslea Retreat along the Otaki River Gorge.
On this three day meditation retreat, we’ll look at how Buddhist meditation can put us on a path to living a more relaxed, peaceful, and free life.
Without screens or phones, to-do lists or deadlines, this retreat is the perfect setting to step out of the busyness of everyday life and practice mindfulness. There will be simple guided meditations, great for those new to practising, and as a refresher for people who have been sitting for a while. The schedule will also include discussion groups, talks on mindfulness/Buddhism, and free time to explore the river and forest nearby.
Whether you’re new to Buddhism and meditation or have been practising for some time, it’s a lovely opportunity to refresh your mind and start new friendships with other meditators.
