The world is a noisy place. There’s outer noise - talking, traffic, TV, social media, and inner noise - distractions, to-do lists and nagging thoughts. Silent retreats aim to quieten this noise so you can reset and recharge.
On a silent retreat, you can enjoy a digital detox, find beauty in your surroundings, and stay connected to your meditative experience. Our beautiful temple in the Dandenong Ranges is the perfect place for you to take a break from the noisy world and emerge better equipped to handle its stresses and stimulation.
The centre is surrounded by natural beauty and spectacular views, and our retreats are fully catered for with delicious vegetarian meals.
The teacher of this retreat is Kelsang Luma. With over a decade of experience as a teacher of modern Buddhism in The New Kadampa Tradition, Kelsang Luma is well-loved for her humble nature, energy, and joy in sharing Buddha’s teachings. Her practical and uplifting approach makes meditation and Buddhism accessible to all.
