fire heart

A retreat for 18-35 year-olds at the wild, beautiful and mythic Sudarshanaloka Retreat Centre in the Coromandel

Metta - active friendliness and good will to others is not a feeling but an attitude. It's not about taming or reducing the ego, but a practice that helps us go beyond the false view of self and other.

Over a long weekend at the wildly beautiful Sudarshanaloka retreat centre, we’ll explore practices that help us align ourselves with the nature of Reality.

Retreats offer the time and space for our minds to become more still and wisdom to arise. They are also a wonderful opportunity to develop friendships that help support and sustain our practice back in the ‘real world’.


Start: 25 Jan 2019 at 7:00pm
Finish: 28 Jan 2019 at 12:00pm

Cost: $315- Waged , $275 - Low/Unwaged , Less $50 if needed for those travelling outside of Thames/Auckland , If cost is an issue we'll do our best to negotiate a cost that you can afford!
