Training [the mind] is about putting a micro-pause or attentiveness, between the perception and the reaction, or, between the mental reaction and any engagement with it. —Ajahn Sucitto

Spend the morning with us in quiet contemplation as we investigate—with curiosity and compassion—the reactive habits, confusion and limiting beliefs that interfere with our experiencing mental freedom, well-being and ease.

We will use mindfulness to investigate the nature of our experience: our morning will include periods of gentle mindful movement, seated and walking meditation, instructions for practice (dharma), Q&A, discussion and light snacks. We will practice silence in the supportive company of others. 

This retreat is designed as a ‘half-day intensive’ to complement the weekly meditation classes here at Stream (offered Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings). However, you do not have to have attended these classes to come and enjoy the retreat.

This retreat is suitable for beginners and experienced meditators. It is an excellent place to start or re-start your practice.
