Insight Retreat – 7 days, Victoria

Kallara Conference Centre 332 Boundary Hill Rd, Boho South, Victoria, Australia

This day of practice will explore, shed light on and unpack the seemingly opposing qualities of 'effort' and 'surrender' in our meditative practice. What roles do they play, and how can they be better understood and utlilised in order to both relax and rouse ourselves into deeper states of receptivity and clarity?
