What to Expect at a Meditation Retreat

A meditation retreat is the perfect way to take ourselves out of our ordinary routine and focus on meditation in a peaceful and comfortable environment. Guided by an experienced, qualified teacher, the retreats offered at KMC Manchester provide a great way to gain a deep experience of inner peace and the basics of Buddhist wisdom. All of the retreats offered at KMC Manchester are suitable for complete beginners and also for those with some experience of meditation retreat.

A retreat can last a day, a weekend, a week or even a month and everyone is welcome to attend as much as their schedules allow – just one session, a day or the full meditation retreat. Typically, each day features 3 or 4 meditation sessions each of which including some guided meditation and often a talk explaining how the real meaning of the practices taught can be incorporated into our busy lives.
