Silent Retreats 

We run weekend Silent Retreats throughout the year and also at Christmas and Easter. You can also book a personal silent retreat at other times.

Following a meal served on arrival – giving time for all participants to get to know each other – this retreat is held in the silence, giving ample time for meditation, thinking, relaxing and getting in touch with the inner self.

Coming on a Silent Retreat at the Centre is a lovely chance to get away from the material hurly-burly of the world, and they are popular with both first-time and experienced retreatants.

The retreat begins after a brief introduction – a chance to greet each other then we go into the silence except for necessities.

During this time retreatants can enjoy:
- A bath with salts and lavendar oil.
- Meditating – a meditation room is available.
- Individual yoga practice on our deck with views to the Waitakeres.
- Our spiritual library.
- Local walks from the Centre grounds (maps available).
- Rest, recuperation and inner refreshment.
- Delicious, fresh and simple food offered buffet-style – salads, grains,    soup and rolls, yoghurt, fruit and biscuits.
- There is always someone on hand to help if you need anything.

What are the benefits of coming on a Silent Retreat?

- Recharge and rest.
- Connect with the spiritual.
- Hear your inner voice – listen to your inner wisdom, clear blocks, develop creativity, connect with inspiration.

Who comes on Silent Retreats?

Everyone! All ages from 18 to 90 and from all backgrounds and cultures.

How much do they cost?

Our Christmas Celebration Retreat costs $290 inc. full board in a shared or single room (if available).

Do I have to follow a religion or spiritual path to come on a Silent Retreat?

No. People from all paths come – including Christians, Buddhists, Muslims, Sikhs, Hindus, Humanists, Atheists and Agnostics. Love and peace are universal and are within all of us. Why not come - and connect with your true self?
