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, we 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 connect with your best self, a commitment to a live a life you love.

WHAT’S THE FOOD LIKE?

2 words – Simply Delicious!

Skillful MIND retreat attendees rave about the food while on retreat – the only complaint is that there’s too much yummy goodness!

The menu has been designed as healthy and wholesome in a home cooked style. It’s simple but is full of flavour and you body will thank you for the nourishment. See top right for a link to sample menus. Our venues are also happy to cater for Lactose/Gluten Free, Vegetarian, Vegan or any special dietary requirements you may have.

Please note: while on retreat we recommend you choose the vegetarian option (if you are not already). This gives your digestion time to also have a break, and in many philosophies it’s said that a meat free diet is more conducive to a meditation and yoga practice. Vegetarian can be chosen in dietary requirements when booking .


HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

The cost of retreat will depend on where it is, and what accommodation option you choose. At Glenbarr the prices are:
