Cloud Mountain Retreat provides meditation on a regular basis for those visiting or living in the region.
The day provides a community setting in which to practice meditation including a shared lunch.
The day comprises of:
-Introduction for those seeking to commence a meditation practice.
-Orientation to Zen and Contemplative practice.
-Instruction and practice in mindfulness and its application to everyday life.
-Opportunity for personal interview with the teacher around practice matters.
-The experience of meditation in a group/ritual setting.
While the day is designed for local and regional people, a ‘week-end stay’ could include the day in your program stay.
