Setting sail into the mystery

For those participating in our newcomers programme

Ship sailing across the ocean or is it the sky

A simple and spacious retreat for those currently participating in the centre's Monday night introductory programme to come together and get a taste of extended practice.

We'll meditate, have time to walk and reflect in the wildly beautiful surrounds of Sudarshanaloka Retreat Centre, prepare food together, and participate in simple Buddhist rituals that speak to the soul.

Together, let's set sail into the mystery!

This retreat is for those who are currently coming to the Auckland Buddhist Centre's Monday night introductory series and follow-on courses, and have already received instruction in our meditation practices. Please get in touch with us before booking if you haven't been coming along to Monday nights this year, to see if this retreat is right for you.
