'The Way Things Are' - 3-day retreat at Kalyana Centre for women

Come and practice mindfulness and discover how to bring more ease to your life.
Rather than battling with the way we are, with the way others are, with circumstances and the conditions in the world, we'd like to come to a place of acceptance that comes from understanding the ever changing and therefor unreliable conditions of this life.
With mindfulness we become aware of resistance, of the tendency to find fault and how our reactions make things worse.

We will pracitce sitting and walking meditation and you will be guided in relaxation and mindful movement.
This retreat is for beginners as well as for those with some experience in mindfulness meditation.

Location: Kalyana Centre Dingle
Fee: €290 including food, shared accommodation and teaching
To sign up: contact
This retreat is for women only, because of the limited accommodation at KC.


October 30th to November 4th

I'm afraid, I had to decide to not teach this retreat. Instead I'll teach the NY retreat - see below.


December 28th to January 1st

4 - day New Year Retreat

Some of us do feel the need to spend the transition from one year to the next in a calm and peaceful environment. This is an opportunithy to do just that at Kalyana Centre. Although it's just a short time, spending it in silence will make it to an extra specail and nourishing time that can influence the way you'll go about your life in the year ahead.
We will practice mindfulness meditation in sitting, walking, with mindful movements as well as by bringing focus and awareness to all the times between the formal sessions. It will be a time of relaxation, reflection and the practice of awareness of this body - mind process.

Location: Kalyana Centre Dingle
Start: 7pm December 28th, ends with lunch January 1st 2018
Fee for entire course, including food, accommodation and teaching € 380

Because of the limited space Kalyana Centre can offer, men are very welcome to attend but will have to be accommodated outside of the Centre.
