Reflective Meditation

Friday, September 28, 2018 – Wednesday, October 3, 2018
With Jenny Taylor, Linda Modaro, Nelly Kaufer
Australia – Alice Springs

Campfire in the Heart, Alice Springs

This retreat is suitable for beginners, as well as those who already practice meditation.

The approach to meditation taught on the retreat is based on early Buddhist teachings. It encourages gentleness toward oneself and others, curiosity about one’s experience, and permission to explore new aspects of meditation. The teachers aim to foster a friendly, creative attitude towards meditation and support people to find their own way in practice. Reflective meditation is compatible with other mindfulness, insight and awareness practices.

In addition to meditation periods there will be talks and discussions about meditation, and optional group and individual discussions about practice. Apart from these times, the retreat will be in silence.

There will be ample time in the daily schedule for rest, walking, drawing or writing.

We recommended you attend the entire retreat if possible.

Weekend-only attendance is possible, but priority will be given to those attending 5 days. 

The venue is quiet and shady. There is a swimming pool and walking tracks through bush and hills behind the property.  There are camping facilities, plus a limited amount of inside accommodation.
