Open integrated week-long mindfulness and meditation retreat: 31st January – 6th February 2021
(Open attendance, stay on or off-site, day visitors welcomed, registration required)
Location: Fair Harvest Permaculture, Margaret River, Western Australia.
This retreat is structured to allow for the integration of mindfulness, meditation, dharma teachings and practices simultaneously with the commitments and routines of daily living.
The retreat is open and integrative by nature. This means you can:
- Attend the whole retreat and immerse staying on-site or off-site.
- Join for any part of the retreat whether you are staying on-site or off-site.
- Attend any of the sessions as you like coming and going from classes throughout the week.
This flexible approach creates an opportunity to dedicate as little or as much of the week as you like to practice whilst managing home, work, play, and other commitments. Also, we get to share a week dedicated to practice and teachings together in a relaxed way. The approach was very much enjoyed by everyone in February 2020.
Registration is required.

Cost for teaching and venue use is Dana, freely offered financial contribution in support. (Guide below).
