Guru Yoga & Mandala Offering Retreat

This retreat is an opportunity to practice offering mandalas. In this practice, we imagine a pure & peaceful world beyond suffering and offer it to others to create special causes for such a world to arise. The retreat is also a special method for making a connection with a Spiritual Guide and receiving their blessings.


There are four 90 minute guided meditation sessions a day, at 7.30am , 10.30am , 4.30pm and 7.30pm. (There is no 7.30pm session on the Sunday) We will provide an information sheet and diagram on how to offer a mandala. Each session consists of a teaching, prayers and silence for meditation and offering mandalas, either by imagination, or by creating rice representations. You are welcome to attend any or all of the sessions.

What do I need to bring for my mandala kit?

We have a couple of mandala kits that participants can use here. Alternatively, if possible, please bring a 1kg bag of rice, a small-medium sized plate, and a 80cm square piece of cloth to contain the plate and rice.  However, mandalas can also be offered by imagination, so do not worry if you cannot bring these items.
