Riverslea fully embraces all that nature can offer and provides the ultimate experience for meditators to rest and relax.

Meditation offers a break from the pressures of daily living and apparent reality.  It enables you to sink deeper into peace and happiness not usually experienced every day.  Knowing this state lets you bring these qualities into your life.  These retreats are suitable for all levels of experience. 

Learn various meditations that can be practiced easily.  Changing mental habits takes time, so you'll be asked to practice these techniques regularly.  We warmly invite you to join us

Learn to meditate or deepen your practice and discuss spiritual philosophy.  The meditations are non-secular and cover teachings from different traditions augmented by a short chant like Aum.  This helps calm the mind before a guided meditation or visualisation. 

The non-secular meditations are led by Ian and Alicia with 35 years’ experience in various Eastern and Western traditions.

Please email now if you'd like to attend so we can plan for the number of meditators. 

Any donations are for those who have difficulty affording the whole retreat and is also for future retreats.  There is no donation for teaching. 

Please forward this to any friends or family who may be interested.

"...each time I attend a meditation course or retreat with them, I walk away feeling more myself.  In such a relaxing and peaceful environment led by experienced meditators, it’s easy to refocus on what really matters and let the unimportant things go...Indigo “
“...anyone looking for a meditation course, from novice to experienced, will find this helpful and welcoming.  I’ve learnt a greater awareness of becoming mindful in this human experience and how integrated all of life is.  This is a non-religious and spiritually aware group, which has taught me to live with less fear and reduced negative thoughts.  This allows for greater calmness, compassion and love to myself and others...  Colleen”
“…I’ve been on many of Ian and Alicia’s meditation courses.  I always leave feeling happy and head back to work with lots of positive energy.  I’ve particularly loved finding that I’ve slowly increased my levels of happiness over the last eight years since participating in the meditation groups and retreats.  They makes new meditators feel very welcome, whether they’ve never meditated before or have meditated for years.  The spiritual discussion part of the evening, which is as varied as the participants, is always enlightening…Michele”
