‘Don’t Just Do Something, Sit There!’ – Breathing Meditation Weekend

August 18 @ 6:00 pm - August 20 @ 2:00 pm

Want to learn to meditate? Perhaps you have tried and need some more skills and extra encouragement? Or possibly, you already meditate and wish to develop your practice and drop into a full weekend of meditation.  If so, then this weekend retreat will support you in exploring this.


The weekend will be predominantly silent and offers you the opportunity to learn, strengthen and enliven your individual practice of breathing meditation.  Alongside this there will be opportunities for sharing and questions as well as time for individual practice; including space to enjoy just ‘being’ at the Wangapeka Centre – a very beautiful environment.


The facilitators of the course, Duncan Mackay and Mark Schrader, are both experienced meditators who bring their enthusiasm, creativity and skills to the retreat.

The facilitators are giving the teaching freely. You are welcome to offer them Kōha/Dana
