Program

The evidence is in: mainstream science is now proving in study after study how meditation and yoga can change our brains – for the better, releasing us from stress, anxiety, depression, and many other modern day maladies that seem to increase with our technologies and luxuries of today.

By attending one of Skillful Mind's weekend retreats you’ll have the opportunity to learn solid techniques, that have proved the test of time, that help you cultivate your own inner peace practices in a safe and supportive environment.

All lessons are shared with you by teachers that also live in your world – who themselves juggle the challenges of balancing work, family, relationships, and keeping up with changing technology and modern-day life, and who know first hand the value of dedicating time to reconnecting with yourself.

At Skillful Mind, they aim to offer you a retreat that:

  • Provides a variety of down to earth teachings – suitable for everyday people living in a world of family, work, and modern stresses
  • Presents with easy to understand language to help you grasp the concepts
  • Is suitable for anyone interested in learning about their mind-body connection – whether you’re a beginner or have some experience
  • Has a great balance of theory and practice – giving you a solid foundation to build your own practice after the retreat
  • Is complementary to existing faith or beliefs
  • Teaches you a diverse range of take-home techniques you can implement immediately
  • Gives you a supportive environment to explore yourself
  • Takes only a weekend – making it easier to fit it into your busy lifestyle

You will be guided by Peter Radcliffe. He has traveled the world learning the ancient art of meditation, and his passion is to share it – and help as many people as he can love the lives they live.

Take a journey into the foundations of meditation, designed especially for those who want to gain a deeper understanding of the benefits a meditation practice can bring.

Over the weekend Peter will share his down to earth, highly informative yet gentle meditation instructions. This meditation retreat is ideal if you are new to meditation, or still learning, but want to go beyond simple guided meditation.

By learning from techniques of the past you will master the basics, and gain a solid understanding of what meditation is, how it works, and how it can benefit your mind and body. Based solidly in the Buddhist tradition, yet free from religion, Peter brings his own modern style of logic and practicality to make meditation a part of your everyday life.

You will learn techniques that people around the world have been using for over 2,500 years, and what to expect if you keep up meditation on a regular basis.

Why a retreat?

A retreat allows you time to focus on understanding, and re-connecting with yourself, in a supportive environment free from day to day distractions, in the company of like-minded people. In this atmosphere, it is common for people to progress much faster than through weekly lessons, or on their own.

A retreat is not a holiday – it's an adventure of spirit!

In today’s world, they don’t often make ourselves a priority – forgetting that to be able to offer strength, love, and happiness to others we must first cultivate it within. A retreat is a commitment to connecting with your best self, a commitment to a living a life you love.

When does it start?

The weekend will open for check-in from 4 p.m. Friday and the welcome ceremony will begin at 6 p.m. (please arrive by 5.50 p.m. to ensure you’re settled and we can start on time).

Finger food (dips, crackers, cheese, dried fruit, and nuts, etc) will be served during your welcome – if you would like something more substantial please either bring or go and get some food beforehand. A fridge, microwave, plates, etc are available for use. The retreat will finish at approximately 3.30 / 4 p.m. Sunday.
