Weekend Retreats for TM Meditators

Oxon Oath, KentWe welcome all who have completed the transcendental meditation (TM) course of instruction, either with the Meditation Trust or the Maharishi Foundation, to attend our Retreats and Advanced Courses.

DISCLAIMER:
As a courtesy to the Maharishi Foundation, we point out that we have made some additions to the basic retreat format recommended by Maharishi.

1) Instead of Yoga Postures demonstrated to you by a TM teacher, usually not qualified to teach Hatha Yoga, we employ a fully qualified and insured professional posture teacher to give you two free 1 hour Yoga posture sessions during a weekend retreat. We also allow meditators to meditate as a group in the library, instead of 'rounding' alone in their bedroom. But the meditator is free to choose. Most prefer the group.

2) We allow experienced meditators, if they prefer, to choose to do extra 'rounds' Instead of attending all the meetings, provided they carefully monitor their feelings and discuss any discomfort with the course leader.

3) We have added a 'quiet day' on Saturday when talking in the house is discouraged. This adds a significant depth, enjoyment and strength of progress which participants find extremely valuable.


When you have been practising Transcendental Meditation for a few months, your practice is regular, both meditation and activity afterwards are comfortable, and hopefully you have attended a few meditators meetings to keep your understanding of the practice on track, you will be very welcome on one of our weekend retreats.

Retreats are the next big step forward in your meditation practice and are proving extremely popular with those who want to speed up their progress and enjoy the most relaxing weekend ever! They are held at Oxon Hoath Country Estate Retreat near Tonbridge, which is warmly appreciated for its lovely quiet atmosphere, beautiful grounds and delightful vegetarian food, (three plentiful meals a day). Arrive Friday afternoon for meditation before dinner and leave at tea-time on Sunday. Extended meditation (in the group or separate if you prefer) with optional yoga postures (2 x 1 hr FREE sessions with qualified instructor) and Pranayama, plus discussions, readings and walking. A structured programme which you can follow or not, according to your mood, including a "quiet day" on Saturday, when we talk as little as possible outside the meetings, add a whole new dimension to our experience! (You can talk outside the house). Meet lots of new meditating friends and gain the results of 3 months' meditation in just one weekend! (according to Maharishi).

2013 PRICES for a 2 Night Retreat from £195 to £250 each, all inclusive, according to room, (plus £40 all singles supplement). Return Taxis available from Tonbridge Station for just £10 (normally £30) BOOK NOW!

Refresher Courses

Midweek Refresher
Join us in the beautiful, relaxed environment of Oxon Hoath as we teach a course of new meditators, Wednesday to Friday. Relax, set your own routine, join group meditations to refresh your practice and sit in on meetings to hear from your current level of awareness what you may have missed the first time around.

£190 accommodation plus £40 single supplement
No charge for the course (£40 for non Trust members)

Weekend Refresher
As above, but on Sunday and Monday, non-residentially. Many have found refresher courses extremely valuable to gain deeper meditation and deeper understanding, especially after a lapse of practice. A Refresher is generally necessary for those joining the Trust who have learned elsewhere.

£40 for Trust Members, £80 for non-members
