Breathe Easy – A Weekend Meditation Retreat
With Jonathan Chambers
Friday 19th to Sunday 21st August
A weekend meditation retreat where we will ease into the wonders of natural awakening, using the breath as our guide.
Suitable for everyone – from beginners wanting to ‘take the plunge’ and learn how to meditate, through to seasoned practitioners seeking an opportunity to reinvigorate their practice.
Formal group sessions will include guided meditation and related teachings as well as gentle embodiment practice, with plenty of opportunity for Q&A. In between formal sessions there will be opportunity for self practice, creative exploration, and to simply connect with nature and enjoy being at Wangapeka. After a settling in period we will enter ‘noble silence’ to help support everyone in getting the most out of the weekend.
Please aim to arrive by 5pm on Friday 19 August. First class 7:30pm on 19 August. Course will finish after lunch and cleanup on Sunday 21 August.

These fees cover accommodation, prepared meals & course resources.
In accordance with Buddhist tradition, Jonathan offers the teachings freely, out of the spirit dana / generosity. There will be opportunity for retreatants to make an offering of dana / koha in return, in support of the teacher & teachings.
