Learn to reflect deeply in a way that relieves unhappiness.

Contemplative traditions go back a long time and are present in all spiritual cultures. During this mid-week event we will learn how to contemplate in the Buddhist tradition and will specifically focus on looking at how everything is constantly changing.

Much as we would like to control how things work out, we cannot always do that, and this can lead to unhappy states of mind.

When we contemplate deeply from the space of meditation we can develop more space, humour, perspective and be better prepared to flow with how life unfolds.

This three day event will include guided meditation and contemplations, walking meditation, discussion, and advice on how to integrate meditation and contemplation into our everyday life. There will also be free time to enjoy the natural beauty of Dzogchen Beara.


The retreat will be held in our clifftop shrine room, with floor-to-ceiling windows offering spectacular ocean views.
