Dharma Gaia

All year round

A Mindfulness Retreat Centre offering regular weekend and longer group retreats, personal retreats (self-guided) and volunteer opportunities.

Personal Retreats offer an opportunity to enjoy the peace and ambiance of Dharma Gaia outside of formal retreat times. Ask for guidance in formulating your retreat time or choose a format that best suits your needs. Whether that includes joining the regular sessions of sitting, walking, yoga or teachings, formulating your own schedule of practice, or simply allowing yourself time to rest, read, write and enjoy the beauty and peace of Dharma Gaia. Dharma Gaia is very happy to receive people from all walks of life to simply come to rest, rejuvenate and experience the deep peace and joy of the Mindfulness Practice Centre. Bookings essential.
