About the retreat

The Metta Retreat® is a unique flame retreat combining ancient wisdom with current science by bringing together two of the most powerful foundational practices known for their profound healing, transformational and positive impact on our psychology, emotions, health and well being. Our retreat combines the latest research in the field of human psychology, health and well being with mindfulness and self-compassion based practices.


Research has shown that self-compassion increases self-esteem, heals emotional trauma and significantly enhances emotional health and wellbeing, in addition to reducing anxiety, stress, and harmful emotional states such as anger, guilt, shame, self-criticism and depression.

This experiential retreat is grounded in right-mindfulness and self-compassion integrating practical guidance with transpersonal psychology, mind, body and heart medicine with current evidence based understanding and knowledge. The retreat is intended to help in pragmatic, practical ways, facilitate you in realising and accessing our existing inner resilience and understanding.
