Women's Retreat

Women's sangha retreat in West Auckland

Women sittiing together

Come along to this early spring retreat for women, at the lovely Bella Rakha Retreat Centre in West Auckland. In our time together we will be dipping our toes into the Buddha's first teaching after attaining enlightenment in Bodhgaya, northern India.

At the time he was reluctant to share what he had discovered as he thought it would be beyond the ability of people to understand. Fortunately for us he was convinced that he should share his insights and we will take time this weekend to explore together what is known as The Four Noble Truths.

We’ll discover how we can practically apply these learnings to our busy and complex lives. There will be plenty of time to meditate together, to connect with old and new friends, as well as exploring the lovely environs of Bella Rakha.

A sangha building retreat for women, focusing on friendship and the beautiful simplicity of practice.

For women who regularly attend the ABC and are familiar with our meditation practices.
