“Stillness is a place of compassion for all aspects of yourself, and that’s a reward that’s worth the journey.”
Shine a light on your inner self
Our do-able, two-day meditation retreat is a lot more diverse than you might think.
Our practice of meditation and its intention goes beyond relaxation. Observing your inner thought patterns can teach greater stress tolerance and emotional balance that lasts long after the retreat is over. True stillness removes the pressure of outside influences, allowing you to examine what really brings joy and meaning to your life.
This retreat is an opportunity to seek out stillness (and at times silence) and learn some beautiful meditation and mindfulness tools. We’ll guide you through meditations, talk about what meditation can actually be (it’s not just about being seated and drawing within!) including walking meditation, mindfulness activities and through yoga and nature connection.
True stillnes is a deeply personal experience that’s different for everybody; the truth is, there’s no way to know exactly what will happen once you’re alone with yourself.
The accomodation for our 2-Night Journey Into Stillness is in our retreat house, separate to the retreat hotel. Our Happy Buddha House is a friendly communal space with newly renovated twin-share rooms. The bathrooms are separate to your rooms but are easily located on the same level as your room. The kitchen is home-style and you’ll have a dedicated chef preparing your nourishing, vegetarian meals. Other communal areas include our lounge area with a toasty fire-place and a small dining room for meal time and for relaxing. Our DREAM studio, located next to the house, is our meditation and workshop space. And of course, you’re welcome to also venture to the retreat hotel with it’s pool (great for a quick dip!), zen den (quiet meditation space) and the bush-land surrounds.

A Meditation Retreat can feel a little challenging as there’s that uncomfortable feeling of sitting still. And we don’t realise how we will feel until we completely stop. Even if your mind takes over and tells you it’s too hard, or not for you, the key to a Meditation Retreat is to trust the process.
The beauty of this retreat is that meditation comes in many forms, including seated and silent, during guided yoga nidra, within the long, juicy hold of yin yoga and walking in nature.
