Relaxing retreats at Atisha Centre

Meditation retreats are the perfect way to relax and unwind, and take a step back from the chaos of life.

Atisha Centre regularly runs a variety of different retreats, from simple half-day retreats to more in-depth opportunities to deepen our experience of meditation.

By stepping out of our normal routine and setting aside time devoted to meditation we have more opportunity to generate a peaceful and concentrated mind. We can also gradually gain special spiritual insights be stepping out of the hurly burly of daily life.

Each retreat is fully guided and everything you need to do is clearly explained.
Normally the retreat sessions are about an hour and a quarter.
