Insight Meditation



"There is an island, and island which you cannot go beyond. It is a place of nothingness, a place of non-possession and non-attachment. It is the total end of death and decay, and this is why I call it Nibbana."



















































Insight Meditation and Yoga Retreat

29 May - 4 June 2016, Bali Mountain Retreat Centre

This unique retreat of 6 days and 6 nights duration will be led by Will and held at Bali Mountain Retreat Centre located high on the slopes of Mount Batukaru in Central Bali. This idyllic retreat environment will enable you to relax and unwind and provide the opportunity to inquire into what it means to live in a free and liberated way. Go to registration form.

            Mountain Retreat sign Mt Batukaru is the second highest mountain in Bali and Bali Mountain Retreat Centre set amidst coffee, cocoa and spice plantations has panoramic views down to the ocean. The air is fresh, the water is directly fed from a spring on the mountain and the creeks and waterways are pristine. You will welcome the refreshing and revitalizing mountain air, sparkling spring fed water and rural Balinese culture.

Insight Meditation, known as Vipassana in the Theravada Buddhist tradition engages in the practice of ethics, mindfulness, depths of meditation, opening of the heart and wisdom teachings. Insight Meditation allows a deep inquiry into this unfolding life, with all its difficulties and joys.  An inquiry into our relationship to what arises in our day to day; be it pleasant or unpleasant and the freedom that is available when we bring understanding and awareness to each experience.
The first 5 days will be held in noble silence to enable participants to go deeply into the practice.
The sixth day will not be silent and will consist of meditation, experiential exercises, interviews and inquiry to help integrate any insights or meditation experiences that have arisen during the retreat as well as an opportunity to connect with eachother.

This retreat offers an ideal opportunity for established meditators to deepen their practice. Those new to meditation can experience a valuable but gentle introduction to silent meditation & the Dharma teachings in a welcoming, supportive environment. The combination of Insight meditation, Yoga and an idyllic environment combine to open our hearts and deepen our understanding.


Robin Macgregor will lead you in Dru Yoga practice which is known as ‘Heart Yoga’. This gentle and flowing yoga blends well with meditation and includes, Emotional Body Release, through a sequence of flowing movements and asanas (postures), finishing with a deep relaxation.
Rob has been practicing Yoga for over 20 yrs and is currently studying Dru Yoga. She has worked as a body therapist for over 10 yrs and has a deep understanding of how the body works.
