Course Details

A relaxing retreat on the beautiful island of Menorca. Join Nagarjuna Centre for this get-away break, where guided meditations can help us to refresh ourselves and improve our outlook on life.

The theme for this retreat will be the Buddhist way of loving-kindness. Meditation and mindfulness techniques will allow us to feel connected and filled with good intentions. In each session, Kadam Bridget Heyes will give a brief introduction and guide all the meditations.

The International Retreat Centre in Menorca will be hosting us for this trip. It is a secluded refuge set in forested hills, with a beautiful Temple, visitor accommodation, and scenic terraces. IRC Menorca is located in the centre of the island (which is 10 miles across and 35 miles long.) It has beautiful walks and is known for its tranquillity.

The retreat includes accommodation and all meals. There are en-suite rooms, dormitories, and camping options available, as well as local hotels.
