The Winter Retreat: Michelle Faye Pereira

Meditation & Self Care through Inner Listening
Winter is the perfect time to pause, reflect and reset. Winter is an invitation to spiritual hibernation.

If you looking to take a short break from everyday life; or, in need of a space of deep silence, healing and reflection; if you are missing a sense of community – this immersive retreat offers support and space to practice meditation, learn psychological methods to uncover wisdom from the churns and enjoy the love of sangha.

This is a partially silent program, with some periods allocated to meditation, silent mindful meals and quiet time in the lap of nature. We will reap the maximum benefit of practising and living with a community, there are time periods for joyful interaction, outings and deep sharing circles too. During the week we will constantly tune into our sense of deeper knowing, that guides us to the truest healing, transformation and awakening. The intention is for deep care for mind, body and spirit so that you may return to your life feeling more connected and fiercely open-hearted.

Emerge from the winter into a spring of your life where you feel free to be your truest self in this world.
