3 Day Meditation Retreat
Awaken to the Spiritual Heart
7-10 June 2024 | with Pete Bampton

This 3-day retreat is a rare opportunity to put aside the routine of your everyday life and all stimulating distractions and give yourself completely to spiritual practice in a supportive collective context.

Through silence, deep meditation and non-dual contemplations, Pete will guide you into a progressive process of relaxation, release and coming home to the discovery of the inherent limitlessness, freedom and love-bliss of your/our True Nature - the Always Already Awakened Spiritual Heart that transcends and includes all-in-All.

Experiencing awakened consciousness and sharing that discovery with others is the most fulfilling and liberating experience we can have. When we discover direct access to our inherent freedom we find ourselves in communion with Life, fearlessly open to the future with a renewed capacity to respond with clarity, creativity and spontaneity.

The radically simple yet profound approach to meditation that Pete shares is a direct doorway to this miracle of natural awakening. The instructions are so simple that anyone can begin without any previous experience. At the same time, the subtlety that is revealed about the nature of mind and non-duality offers infinite depth to even the most experienced meditator.

The retreat will be held in silence except for teaching periods and question and answer sessions. No previous meditation experience is necessary and people from all faiths and spiritual orientations can benefit.

There will be morning sessions of breathwork and qi gong to facilitate the process of relaxation and release.
