On retreat teens have the opportunity to learn mindfulness meditation - a scientifically proven awareness and concentration practice which has shown to calm an active mind, foster resilience and lower feelings of stress, worry and depression.
The retreat includes periods of silence, sitting and walking meditation, small group discussions, creative workshops and daily yoga classes. To ensure teens receive the highest quality support, guidance and mentoring, the Tasmanian retreat includes a 2 to 1 teen/staff ratio. We have approximately 40 spaces available - we hope to see you there!
We work on a sliding scale and ask participants to pay 1% of their annual family income up to the full cost of $900 (minimum $300). We intend to never turn a teen away from the chance to come on retreat - especially because of monetary reasons - for this reason we ask you to use this sliding scale as a guide.
Retreat costs are all inclusive, including accommodation, all meals, snacks and a five-day learning program with experienced meditation and yoga teachers and specialist retreat staff.
*NOTE: We have the opportunity to support a limited amount of teens through partial and full scholarships. If you are in a position where you may need to apply, please advise us during the application process.
