Wisdom and Compassion: The Two Pillars of a Peaceful & Contented Life

Type of Programme
3 Day Retreat


In this silent weekend retreat we will establish compassionate awareness through detailed attention to body, mind and heart.

We will be using mindfulness as well as compassion ‘techniques’ to be in touch with our innermost being, where there is no right or wrong, success or failure; where we can experience that sense of equanimity that IS contentment and peace.
