October Mindfulness Retreat

We are excited to announce that we will be holding our next retreat on the weekend of the 6th and 7th of October. We will be leaving Taipei on Saturday at around 1pm and returning by around 6pm on Sunday evening. We will be spending the retreat at a wonderful temple in Guanxi that is surrounded by tea farms and the sounds of nature.


We will be combining sitting meditation with other activities such as a ‘Dinner of Awakening’ (where we concentrate on every aspect of eating dinner), moving/martial Chan lessons, Taiwanese tea appreciation combined with mindfulness and a special class from a very special guest. We also have plenty of time scheduled for just sitting around and catching up with friends – both old and new.

The theme of the retreat is on dealing with our day-to-day lives between sitting meditations and trying to ‘live Chan’ a little more.

Because we will have essentially exclusive use of this temple and its facilities the costs of this retreat are slightly higher than in the past. As usual this includes the cost of all accommodation, food, travel and activities. The cost for this retreat is NTD$1500. We think that around USD$50 is reasonable for an entire weekend of food and activity, however, if this would cause you genuine difficulties and stop you from otherwise attending, then please discuss, in total confidence, with Teresa or Kishi.

We have already had a great deal of interest in this retreat and as places are very limited and already going quickly, please sign up here now.

If you have any queries at all, then please either email englishmeditation at gmail.com or discuss directly with Kishi, Teresa or David.

We are immensely excited to have you join this retreat.
