Learn To Meditate Weekend
in the Blue Mountains


Immerse yourself in nature
and learn to meditate…

Join our brand new weekend offering and explore accessible forms of meditation.


Held in one of Australia’s most healing mountain locations,
join us for Learn to Meditate at Happy Buddha Retreats,
held as a weekly weekend retreat.

Carve out space for you, and learn to meditate!

Nature really is our best teacher for meditation and mindfulness.

Immerse yourself in nature and learn to meditate during an inspiring weekend Blue Mountains escape.

As you learn to breathe and pause, the natural surrounds will gently support you. As you withdraw from every day habitual thoughts the sound of the birds in the background will ground your senses into the present moment.

And along this journey, you’ll learn beautiful meditation and mindfulness techniques to keep in your wellbeing toolkit.

Join us for Learn to Meditate at Happy Buddha Retreats, just 90minutes drive from Sydney. This is a brand new, intimate offering we’ve created and all workshops will be held in our ‘zen’ studio.

How to meditate
(without overthinking it)…

We’ll teach you practical and accessible meditation and mindfulness techniques.

Regular meditation can improve your sleep, lessen your anxiety levels, increase your focus, regulate your nervous system, improve memory and positively impact your life-perspective.

But here’s where we dispel a meditation myth: that successful “meditation” means hours of seated discomfort and unsurpassed dedication.

We truly believe that when you find a meditation technique that suits your lifestyle, you’re more likely to practice (even if it’s just 5-minutes a day) and more likely to experience peace and contentment in your daily life. And that’s where this weekend can support you…


You’ll explore and experience various meditation techniques including:

  • Focused & Grounded Meditation – A more traditional form of meditation.
  • Movement Meditation – Calm your nervous system with gentle movement.
  • Guided & Visual Meditations – Taking you away from repetitive thoughts.
  • Nature Meditation – Noticing our surrounds and connecting with nature.
  • Rhythmic Meditation – Embrace your inner rhythm with body percussion.

2-night Learn to Meditate experience

For $449 per person, your weekend includes an inspiring program, a workbook, nourishing vegetarian meals and twin-share room. (Bathrooms are shared amenities)

Book in with a friend or we’ll pair you up with another Learn to Meditate participant. Limited solo rooms available so please check the additional and availability upon booking.

This is a weekend program! Bookings from October 29, 2021.
