About Retreats

Residential and One-day-Retreats

All the retreats are led by experienced facilitators, many of whom are from a professional background and who have learnt to interweave a spiritual approach into their personal and professional lives. They give their time voluntarily to help others see the inner changes which are necessary to cultivate a deeper contentment and a greater joy, in an often chaotic world. Each retreat is an opportunity to explore the deepest insights into the true nature of our being, review the purpose of our life and learn practical methods to sustain calm and clarity in everyday living.

Both the One-Day Retreat and residential Meditation Retreat (Inner Peace, Inner Power) provide guidance in meditation, whilst the retreats for specific professional groups are sensitively designed to explore the application of spiritual values in the workplace. The retreats are intended for participants who are 18 years of age and over.

Retreats at the Global Retreat Centre have two key components.

Examination of some of the deeper truths about human nature. We work with the understanding that there is an energy of goodness within us, and that this increases or decreases according to our habits of thought and feeling. Knowing more about our selves, and how we function, gives us the power to think and act more positively.
Periods of silence in which to reflect on our higher feelings, values, and purpose in life. Peace of mind, intrinsic to all of us but easily lost when we become trapped in mundane concerns, is restored. This experience helps connect us to an unchanging and infinite source of love and truth.

The Aim

The aim is to enable participants to recharge their own sense of well being, and learn how to maintain this strength in everyday life. Lectures, meditation, workshops, pure vegetarian food, walks in the beautiful grounds, and a peaceful atmosphere all contribute to the process.
