Silent Weekend Meditation Retreat | 11 - 13 Oct


In a world of constant noise and distractions, silent retreats offer a deliberate escape for resetting and recharging. Nestled in the serene Dandenong Ranges, Kadampa Meditation Centre Australia provides a temporary refuge from the chaos, allowing you to disconnect and emerge fortified to navigate life’s challenges. 

Surrounded by natural beauty, our centre offers a perfect sanctuary for introspection and rejuvenation. 

Step away from the noise, immerse in tranquility, and reemerge renewed to face life’s demands.



The teacher of this retreat is Maria Mylonas. Maria is a dedicated and enthusiastic teacher of the New Kadampa Tradition, effortlessly blending her natural confidence and clear teaching style to make Buddha's wisdom accessible to all.
