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.

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.
