What is retreat?
The Tibetan word for retreat is ‘tsam’, which means ‘stop’ or ‘make a break’. This indicates we must stop, or make a break from, our normal activities and concentrate on a particular spiritual practice. The most important thing to stop during retreat is our distractions—to stop our busy mind.
At Kadampa Meditation Centre Wellington we offer a variety of retreats to give the practitioner an opportunity to ‘take a break’ from normal activities and a distracted mind.
Kadampa Meditation Centre Wellington offers various away weekend retreats in Otaki. These retreats usually start on a Friday evening and finish Sunday afternoon. If you are interested in weekend retreats being held in the Top of the South, please email us and let us know.
