Meditation Retreats

 

In our busy modern life we lack the calm and stillness conducive to maintaining a happy and peaceful state of mind. There is no better way to give yourself a break from the daily routine and reassess your life, than by engaging in a meditation retreat. Here at Tharpaland we devote our time to meditation and contemplation – it is a time to acquaint our minds with positive and meaningful thoughts.

Please scroll down to see our complete list of Meditation Retreats for 2018

These retreats are guided and allow the student time to train in a particular practice in silence but with the support and structure of the group sessions.
