Simplicity over the New Year period

A simple daily programme of meditation and Buddhist ritual over the New Year period at Sudarshanaloka.

There will be opportunities for silence, reflection and doing absolutely nothing.

There will also be opportunities for connecting with others as well as exploring the forest tracks and swimming in the river.

We will have a revolving team of leaders during this retreat, although the programme will be consistent throughout.

Wondering how to get to Sudarshanaloka? More info here.

Bookings close December 22 at midnight.
