The Hills Retreat

THE HILLS RETREAT
A meaningful and relaxing weekend away

NUNYARA CONFERENCE CENTRE • BELAIR • 26-28 APRIL 2024

THE RETREAT

Retreat gives us the opportunity to relax, unwind and gain a deeper experience of meditation and inner peace. At our Hills Retreat, we will be emphasising the practice of patient acceptance, cherishing others and considering their happiness as important. The practice of patience is not passive but very powerful.  It is a special attitude that deals with all of life’s challenges with a peaceful mind and loving heart.

When our inner world is transformed into acceptance, love and compassion, the outer world will follow. If we truly want our lives and our world to be different, this needs to be our daily life practice. All problems arise from excessive self-focus, attachment, anger and unrealistic expectations of ourself and others. Patient acceptance dissolves all these problems. With our mind of love, we will always have space for everyone.

The retreat is suitable for both beginners and those looking to deepen their practice.

The retreat begins with dinner on Friday night and finishes with lunch on Sunday. There are plenty of opportunities to relax and unwind in the peaceful surroundings. The retreat is catered with delicious vegetarian or vegan food, and includes simple accommodation options. All you need to do is to relax and enjoy yourself. Booking is essential – please book early to ensure a place. Everyone is welcome.
