Meditation Retreats at the Kalyana Centre

Retreats 2018


Saturday 17th
A day of self-care, practicing mindfulness meditation

Taking time to be still, reflect on what's important and let any answers come from that quiet place.
You'll be guided throughout the day in sitting and walking mediation.
Mindful movement and a body scan/lying down relaxation will help to connect with the present moment. 

Location: Kalyana Centre Dingle
Start: 11am, ending 5pm
Fee: € 45 includes light lunch and beverages
To sign up: email 


Saturday 10th 
A day of self-care, practicing Loving Kindness Meditation

The silent repetition of the simplicity of the Loving Kindness phrases brings calmness to the mind and serves like a mirror to the mind. We see what brings ease and peace and where the heart shuts down. We enjoy when there is openess and we respect when there is hurt and the need for protection. We see what is needed: a softening of the heart, forgiveness or maybe just respectfully letting things be or giving it more time. 

Location: Kalyana Centre Dingle
Start: 11am, ending 5pm
Fee: € 45 including light lunch and beverages
To sign up: email

Awakening Joy
We will practice mindfulness meditation and cultivate qualities that bring well-being to our heart and mind.

Opening heart and mind
