Vacation for the Mind - Meditations for Relaxation Silent Retreat | 20 - 22 January


The world is a noisy place. There’s outer noise – talking, traffic, TV – and inner noise: distractions, social media, to-do lists, and nagging thoughts. Silent retreats aim to quiet 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 the meditative experience. Our beautiful temple in the Dandenong Ranges is the perfect place 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 with delicious vegetarian meals.



Gen Kelsang Dornying is the Resident Teacher at KMC Melbourne and KMC Australia and has over 18 years experience in teaching meditation and Buddhism. He is inspiring and light-hearted, and makes Buddha's teachings relevant to everyday life.
