MEDITATION RETREAT

KOONJEWARRE CAMP, SPRINGBROOK

Koonjewarre is located on Springbrook Plateau in the Gold Coast Hinterland. It is adjacent to the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area.

PART-SILENT RETREAT

A retreat is a time when we stop all forms of busyness and extraneous activities and spend time concentrating on a particular meditation practice. By observing silence on retreat, our mind will naturally become more calm and clear, and we will find it easier to clear away the distractions that interfere with our meditation practice. Through developing a clearer and more concentrated mind, we will be able to understand our meditation object more deeply and thereby gain a deeper experience of it.

From after breakfast until the end of the second session each day, we will refrain from verbal and physical interaction with others.
