Upcoming Weekend Retreat

Upcoming Weekend Retreat

Rigpa Melbourne is a centre for the study and practice of Tibetan Buddhism. Each year we offer the opportunity to do a weekend retreat.

We will be hosting a retreat in our centre in Brunswick in March or April 2018. Dates for the weekend will be finalised soon. This will be a non-residential retreat.

This will be a time to come into a calm and peaceful environment to practise meditation in a small group setting.

Who is it for:

The retreat is open to all and suitable for both newer and more experienced meditators. The weekend will provide a series of short meditation sessions and guided practices.

You can sit in a chair or on a cushion. Wear comfortable clothing.

Features of the retreat:

The weekend will feature:

  • Time out from your usual weekend activities; time for you to simply “be”
  • Simple meditation instruction – the practice of shamatha (calm abiding meditation)
  • Viewing some teachings on meditation
  • The benefits of meditation
  • Small group discussion
  • Advice on establishing a regular meditation practice in your life
  • The choice of joining others for lunch at a nearby café or BYO lunch

Fees and dates to be finalised soon.
